Talking about the latest episode of Ally McBeal at the watercooler
Wearing a top that has buttons
Is that what they’re calling it these days
Booking meeting rooms for an hour, knocking on the door of the meeting room at the second that my booking comes into effect, clearing it out, then using it for a five minute call that should have been an email.
Seeing people that I despise
When the fire alarm goes off and you get to pretend you’re annoyed about it interrupting work
Chatting to people in passing, rather than in meetings
Making a massive fuss about how I’ve just cycled in and I’m better than everyone else.
Taking your stuff home from the fridge as the cleaners will be clearing it out at the weekend
I can watch porn on a bigger screen
When my colleague brings her sausage dog in and he spends the whole day destroying his bed and barking at the postman
And gather colleagues round to make recommendations
Going to Tesco every lunchtime and being bang up on all the latest offers
Stinking out their toilets instead of my own.
Do you think this will become a successful book?
Have you got Michael Haneke’s number?
Too early to say but maybe!
Think shyamalan will be a better choice.
The twist? We are an isolated village of offices living the 2019 idyll while the 25th century rages* beyond our steel and glass towers.
*people working at home
Also we’re all ghosts
it’s nice to see Daan
