    I'm really bad at writing by hand in the traditional way (I don't hold the pen/pencil in the normal way). Is it MANDATORY to do this? It looks like you had a lot of paperwork and had to mark them by hand. >.<

    In real life you have only a few minutes in between calls. You make about 10 per day. If one client complains you can be fired. You also must be preparing X amount of tax returns in a short period of time, if not you will be fired, regardless of any stumbling blocks you think are good excuses. You never go home at 5pm. You must work overtime for free to get more work done, or else you'll be fired. You are competing against your peers. There's no employee protection at firms. The pay is below average, the benefits are mediocre. Also anyone can be a tax professional without college and that brings the pay down. And this is the truth in a day in a life of a tax accountant.
