A MAN has agreed with the eighth colleague he has held a lengthy conversation about office working with that it is so much more efficient.
Jordan Gardner has so far discussed how effective and collaborative office working is with his line manager, his department head, the managing director’s PA, colleagues on both sides and two people queuing for a toastie in the canteen.
He said: “As Yasmin was saying to me before while she waited for her photocopying to finish, there really is no comparison.
“If I was working from home, by now I wouldn’t have had a single chat with anyone. I’d have been on the sofa working from 8am without even the benefit of a commute.
“Instead I know what everyone’s up to, where they’ve been on holiday this summer, what they thought of Kaz and Tyler making it official on Love Island, that Danielle’s having to express her cat’s anal glands manually, and of course the superiority of office working.
“I don’t know how the company’s been able to keep going with us all at home, unable to share vital insights while going around asking if anyone wants a Starbucks because they’re popping out. Thank God that’s over.”
Gardner then returned his attention to the short reply email he has been writing ever since first arriving in the office two hours ago.
