Office life is not for me
A study of office workers reveals much about our working lives. The average desk-jockey’s career will involve 94 sick days, 705 minor disagreements, nine pay rises, six job moves, 9,024 hours of overtime, one office romance and nearly 30,000 cups of tea.
I worked in an office for about three years, and feel like I crammed in most of the above, apart from the tea thing. I’d add around 10,000 hours on Facebook, 600 glasses of red wine drunk from lidded coffee cups and two hangovers so severe I had to sleep in a cupboard all day to survive them. It is odd, on reflection, that this career path didn’t work out.
