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 :

Prison Work
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…
