luxury. i have to go down a flight of stairs, across a rainy courtyard and then have to decide upon the free kenco coffee from the machine or a starbucks that costs 85p.Dave5N said:Funny, I had this conversation tonight at the club with a chap who works mending roads. He had been labouring outdoors since 6:30am, but I pointed out that we office workers have it tough too. For example, our kitchen was being refitted today at work. We had to walk all the way down (one flight of) stairs just to make a cup of coffee!
Yeah well, when I said stairs, I meant climb down the drainpipe. And back up balancing a steaming mug on our heads.alecstilleyedye said:luxury. i have to go down a flight of stairs, across a rainy courtyard and then have to decide upon the free kenco coffee from the machine or a starbucks that costs 85p.
Yeah, well obviously you gotta prioritise, do what's best for the business an' that.alecstilleyedye said:and when i said courtyard i meant past the swimming pool. we had to chuck a business meeting out of the room with the wii in so we could play bowling too. just one of those days i suppose
at our place you don't have to fill out a form to have a poo…Nortones2 said:Office temperatures: pah! Went into a factory on a "blitz" of unregistered dumps, to see that the snow that morning had blown though the roof gaps, settled on the machinery (lathes etc), and due to the fact there was no (nil) heating, was showing no signs of melting. Part way through an interview with the owner we were interrupted by an explosion: bodged electrics to a van battery sparked, hydrogen gas exploded, as it does, acid and the remains of the battery case scattered. Luckily I had our medic with us (by chance) who treated the guy with acid in his face. Office workers have it soft.... All true BTW. Got my prosecution count up quite well
