bad weather for office workers

Something has surprised and annoyed me today (and every day when the weather is reasonable). Most of my colleagues still insist on going down to the canteen to buy an two overpriced pieces of bread filled with some preprocessed meat filling (25% chicken, 15% pork, 10% rusk, 50% unidentifiable) and carry it back to their desk with them and eat it there while continuing to stare at their screens. Never leaving the aircon office to the fresh air outdoors.


Its a lovely day outside, it’s warm, it’s not windy, the river Thames is 2 minutes walk away, there is dry grass to sit on, the birds are singing, the sun is refreshingly warm on your face, all for the first time this year.

So why not make the most of it? I sometimes feel lucky to be alive, free to go where I want, buy whatever food I desire, talk about whatever I choose. Others (infact a huge majority of people in this world) don’t and never will have it as lucky as we all do in this country…

Two different grumbles seem to have interconnected there, but you can see what I mean I hope.
