Actually, his work at the patent office led to his famous work
Much of his work at the patent office related to questions about transmission of electric signals and electrical-mechanical synchronization of time, two technical problems that show up conspicuously in the thought experiments that eventually led Einstein to his radical conclusions about the nature of light and the fundamental connection between space and time.[41]:377

Are you suggesting our OP is a budding Einstein? He has made a couple of dozen posts and not a single one of them has anything to do with physics, as nearly as I can see so he seems to be here just for chit chat, which is why I asked about any interest in physics.

There's nothing wrong w/ being here just for the chit chat, it just puzzles me that someone would choose a physics forum for that when there are (as I understand it anyway) numerous forums on the internet where that is more the purpose.

No, I was only meaning that having a boring day job doesn't exclude a person from having passion decication and just maybe an immense talent in some other field.

Anyway he asked you about your own life not Einstein"s or his:oldbiggrin:

This is very true. My job gives me no thrills, but my outside-of-work life is very nice.

Or maybe working in the supermarket is not necessarily boring.

One could enjoy reading the physics, but not discussing the physics.
