AN OBVIOUSLY mad colleague has suggested doing less work in exchange for having less money and things.
During a discussion among office workers about how much they hate their work, Nikki Hollis suggested they could perhaps quit and then buy less stuff.
Hollis said: “This job is awful but adequately well-paid, so we’ve all gotten into buying tellies and sofas and so forth.
“But we could probably quit and do something less lucrative but more interesting, or go part-time or something.
“It’d mean having less stuff. Like driving around in an old car, getting second-hand furniture, that sort of thing. People chuck out loads of perfectly decent things so your main living costs would be rent and bills.”
Co-worker Tom Booker said: “I always thought Nikki was a bit eccentric but never knew she was fully mental. Imagine making your own sandwiches, giving up massive coffees or going on holiday in a caravan.”
Hollis was reported to HR and called in for a chat, after which she was taken from the building in a sort of ambulance.
