I recently spent a week in student accomodation on a tour of North Wales. I wasn’t as good as the picture above.
However, the picture above is a prison cell.
This led me to reflect on some differences that a friend sent me recently regarding the differences between prison and the office. Here’s what he said :
|You spend the majority of your time in a 10X10 cell||You spend the majority of your time in a 6X6 cubicle|
|You get three meals a day fully paid for||You get a break for one meal and you have to pay for it|
|You get time off for good behavior||You get more work for good behavior|
|The guard locks and unlocks all the doors for you||You must often carry a security card and open all the doors for yourself|
|You can watch TV and play games||You could get fired for watching TV and playing games|
|You get your own toilet||You have to share the toilet with some people who pee on the seat|
|They allow your family and friends to visit||You aren’t even supposed to speak to your family|
|All expenses are paid by the taxpayers with no work required||You get to pay all your expenses to go to work, and they deduct taxes from your salary to pay for prisoners|
|You spend most of your life inside bars wanting to get out||You spend most of your time wanting to get out and go inside bars|
Think about it. It’s all true.
Now get on with your work. You’re not paid to read blogs…
