BRITAIN turned up for work today even though there is curling on the television.
Millions of workers congratulated each other on their strength of character and pledged mutual support until they can rush home and immerse themselves once more in the icy drama.
Martin Bishop, from Hatfield, said: “I thought I’d be a gibbering wreck by now. The fact I’m sitting at my desk while men are curling on television is nothing short of incredible.
“I constantly think about sneaking off to the bogs with my phone to take in a couple of ‘curls’. But, by some miracle, I manage not to.”
Jane Thompson, from Stevenage, added: “I understand the play-offs were ‘tense’. Normally you can’t keep away from something tense. So I’m a bit like a heroin addict going cold turkey.
“Thank god it’s almost over. I just hope they don’t find a way of making those big stones move any slower.”
