Do you ever have a roller coaster day with Excel? If so, are pivot tables usually involved? And I know it’s a typo, but “troublesheet” is my new favourite word.
Do your Excel charts look like the Batman logo? Or does your work look more like a $15 mouse, and it’s slowly killing you?
Even if you’ve been in love with Excel for a long time, does it still give you butterflies? Or have you moved on to Pokémon and Hamilton?
Does it feel like you’ve spent 8 hours working in Excel today, or 500 years? It probably doesn’t matter, as long as your pivot table is relevant.
Have you been lying on your résumé, and you have to Google how to make a pivot table? Or is that even a proficiency? Maybe you should go to Starbucks (when it isn’t busy), and think about that.
If you mess up your Excel chart, does that mean you’ve lost the plot? If that joke gave you a migraine, I’m sorry – it was not Our Greatest Work.
After setting up my new laptop, I’ll have to agree with the tweet about stupid default settings. And if the answer is always a pivot table, does that mean they’re funny looking? Enjoy the tweets – I’m going back to my desk to test a formula.
Is your youth fading, and if so, is Excel to blame? Anyway, don’t yell at the paper clip, and leave the pivot table out of it. I’m sure that bloke from 2003 would agree!
Which is worse – “generously formatted” Excel workbooks, or files with “merged and centered” cells? Maybe you can work on that problem if you get bored this summer. Or, just turn everything into a pivot table!
