A HOMEWORKER maintains age-old office traditions by drinking heavily during her Friday lunch hour.
Alice Turner, from Stevenage, believes it is important for homeworkers to ‘build structure’ into their week, including having a proper lunchtime session at the end of the week.
He said: “If you’re not careful one day blurs into another, so on Friday I go to the nearest pub and neck four pints of cider while standing next to some office workers.
“I do all this on an empty stomach so that I feel sufficiently shitfaced when I get back to my desk.
“But of course I can then fall asleep in my chair without getting sacked, unlike people who still work in offices. We homeworkers call them ‘idiots’.”
Turner added: “I obviously don’t touch alcohol the rest of the week. I just find it helps to keep up those working rhythms.
“That’s why every morning and evening I get on a bus and rub myself against strangers.”
