Perth woman, Stephanie, once again flew too close to the sun and lived every day of the 5-week break like she never had to work again.
Alas, judgement day has arrived and as a vineyard’s worth of yew-juice slowly seeps out of every pore she is dangerously close to a mini office meltdown. Not helped by the fact Tony has nabbed her preferred workspace in a brazen act of hot-desk-dogcunting.
It would all seem hopeless but for a single beacon of light in the distance. A dream for Stephanie to tether herself to and avoid floating down the sad river of comedownery. Thursday is gonna be an absolute 30-degree belter.
We spoke to Stephanie who was making her 4th coffee for the morning, she told The Times,
“All I have to do is think about Thursday and everything will be OK. 30 degrees so early in Spring. What a marvel. I just have to get through to Thursday. I thought my 5-day holiday was going to last forever”
If Stephanie can just drag her lethargic arse through a few more days she can pull a work-from-home card on Thursday and sun herself happy in her backyard. Like a quiet-quitting lizard on the rock of minimum effort employeeship.
Similarly, her workmate Dan is looking like he just spent a night on the Event Horizon. He told The Times,
“10:30 rolled around and I was just fanging for a brekkie beer. Like I’d treated myself to every day of the 5-day break. If it wasn’t for the upcoming forecast I reckon I’d be sobbing even louder”
So far, Dan has spent an impressive 1 hour 45 minutes on the toilet. For a mixture of work & play. However, it’s the intense fixation on maybe dipping his toes in the ocean on Thursday that is getting him through.
Documenting the Human Zoo is thirsty work, so if you enjoyed what you read how about buying Belle a beer, ay?
