The Daily Grind

July 23, 2008

As suggested by Vic

To be honest my daily commute story does hold the risk of putting several of you into a complete and utter catatonic state… but I will make you all jealous with it anyway…

I can come to work at whatever time I like. Most days I get here for 8.30ish and work till around 5. We are open 8am until 5.30pm and I have four staff who are all responsible for keeping it open and occupied during that time. They have a kind of rota situation which they organise themselves and I just sorta stick my oar in every now and then if I feel it’s getting a little relaxed.

We are all contracted to work 37.5 hour week although unfortunately the beautiful concept of ‘flexitime’ doesn’t really hold any water in recruitment. You’re here for 37.5 hours a week (7.5 hours per day) every day and if you need to be here longer then you are!

So – I live about… oooohh…. 11 minutes walk from work..?

So I walk to work… innovative I know 🙂

…. along streets that normally have some sort of canine fecal matter to offer me as scenery …. and then totter past a few shops… deny myself a skinny latte from Coffee Aroma and waltz into work, gorgeous and smoking hot every day (ahem)

🙂

What about you? I tag Hojo, Vic and Foxsden anyone else that wants to have a go – just leave me a comment here that you’ve done it!

    Nope – it kept me awake for another minute. Quite a feat considering my current state of tiredness.
    Have no blog subject matter for today so thanks for the tag – I can blog now.
    For tomorrow I instruct you to write about your lunch! lol

    I’m deeply upset that you didn’t tag me 🙂

    Up till last week, my daily commute involved 13 stairs and 2 doors and it took me about a minute.

    Now, I don’t have a daily commute as I’m now an unemployed scally.

    lol – funnily enough I had a really hefty debate with myself for errr.. ooh 10 seconds…. about whether that could be considered thoughtless 😆

    Well, apart from the money earning bit, obviously. And the office gossip. And the bitchy colleague lunches. And the money.

    BUT… I DON’T HAVE TO COMMUTE ANYMORE!!! MWAHAHAHAHAHA! Oh. I didn’t anyway.

    Sigh.

    Mine’s shorter, depending on which bed i wake up in. But normally there aren’t even stairs or doors, just a duvet and a doorway.

    Obviously i can go to work properly, but mostly i can’t be arsed. I love working for myself 😀

    Merrys last blog post..Protected: Up close and way too personal.
