Manual of Life - Alternative Definitions

Job Satisfaction
n., A state of mind that makes you grin till your cheeks hurt, and which can be caused by being able to work on your laptop and being able to listen to "Beautiful Day", while watching through the garden windows as a gorgeously sunny summer day unfolds.

This state of mind can be maintained for a lengthy period of time by remembering that this is just the beginning - and that from now on your commute will take about 20 seconds, no freezing winds will try and blow you off the bike anymore, and that the hot cuppa can be made just as you like it. AND you get paid for it. Oh, and Wimbledon's live on telly.


PS. No hexes, please. Especially if you're having a crappy day at work.

From white-collar worker to bunny-slipper worker is a great move. Long as you don't hop around too much near the refrigerator.

But that's the point! I'm supposed to be putting on weight, remember?

Working from home is just brilliant, isn't it? ...from now on your commute will take about 20 seconds, no freezing winds will try and blow you off the bike anymore, and that the hot cuppa can be made just as you like it You forgot to add "AND you get paid for this".

Szer:
Everybody's allowed one good year at least no? You went to Turkey no?

Slapslapslap. Of course! That's the key criterion. Can't believe I missed that. Edited. Thanks.

Having just risked life and limb to go to work in pelting rain and strong wind (a typhoon 8 signal which means 'stay at home') and write a piece on fine wine which is due only next week, I think what is the point and why don't more companies save themselves the compensation they will be forced to pay out when a neon sign falls on an employee's head en route to the office? But good for you!

Ok, that addition to your post definitely deserves a monster HEX! And you can blame it on Brinda if Paradise is Lost and never Regained.
