Fooking hell, there are most certainly days at work when I feel like the boy in the video above. After a year of freelance hell (just too many wankers out there waiting to shaft you), I am back in the grind but grateful fer the luxury of a fixed income. But my word, there's no escaping the fooking tedium & boredom at times.
Fer starters, me workplace has a very strict 'no smoking' rule which means there are no fag breaks to get the creative juices flowing. I know I am supposed to be off tobacco but a hit once in a while should do no harm. But its out of the question here (not even in the boys room. . . sigh).
As fer some idle chit chat bout me fave topic like sports to break the monotony is also out of the question as all me colleagues are of the female (& very not-into-sports) persuasion. Eg: Brought up the recent thrilling F1 finale over lunch & was met by a wall of blank stares. Imagine, they have never heard of Lewis Hamilton. I know many people do not watch or follow sports but certain names should register as they crop on the news, radio, papers & ,of course, online all the fooking time. I don't watch (or even understand) golf but I know who Tiger Woods is and have little or no interest in tennis but also know that Roger Federer is the closest thing the game has to a living deity. It was only when I mentioned that women consider Hamilton a bit of a crumpet that they started googling him. So NO sports-related topics in conversation at office to lighten the mood.
Yes, I know these are problems everyone else faces in their daily routine plus the tons of stress, wanker clients/bosses & have to tackle almighty fooking jams to commute to work. So far, I have not faced these problems (fingers crossed) & I hope I won't ever have to.
Fact remains though, its daaaaamn boooooring & kinda lonely as well without some tobacco & footie addicts to chew the fat with.
PS: Pay no heed, just a little venting after a less than eventful day at work. . . Am pretty fooking sure after this posting an avalanche of work will fall on me desk to keep me occupied!
