Such interesting history!

“Oh, and a reminder that all submittal drawings are due to me by 8:10 AM today.”
I don’t recognize what they’re drawing. Can you provide some context?
How did they keep from smudging the drawings while laying on them?
How the times have changed. Now the drafters and designers are only metaphorically laying on the floor and getting stepped on.
Does this whole industry just suck? I'm sick of working like a slave for so little money. Wondering if it's just my firm, or if I should just get out of this field. Or leave the design side at least.
