Work in an office and you are working in an ancient occupation.

In fact the work goes back way, way longer than that, because as soon as human society moved from hunter gathering clans to agriculture and settled communities developed then someone had to run the place.

(Mind you, the credit and quality control was probably a bit more brutal back then).
