I was thinking the other day as I was skimming through my game collection if there are any games about the cable industry.

There are games abouut farming, Trucking through space, and even being the CEO of a railroad company, I tried but couldn't find one on installing, selling or maintaining cable services.

So, what game or games come as close as possable to what you do for a living?

This is about the closest I could find, though Power Grid deals with a utility, for some people cable is more important than staying warm or having hot water.(I have seen this)

I am the main inventory counter at the auto parts warehouse where I work.

Pros:
I love doing math in my head
I (usually) get to leave work by 3 p.m.
I get to drive a warehouse picker, sometimes raising the platform I stand on to over 26 feet high
I go all over the warehouse, not just in a little area.
I work 10 miles from my home
I am friends with a lot of fellow workers
I get to play chess/euchre at break/lunch

Cons:
I have to be at work by 6 a.m.
