I just saw this quote on the New York Times:

"Banking should not be exciting. If banking is exciting there is something wrong with it."-CLAY EWING, president of German American Bancorp., a community bank in Jasper, Ind.

It's just so Monty Python. I can see Eric Idle and Michael Palin now:

"Why did you get into Chartered Accountancy?"
"The thrills."

But it does point something out. You are handling people's money. It should be a sobering, serious business. It should not be the world's scariest rollercoaster. That's what theme parks and skydiving are for.
