20Something and Surviving

Cold Conspiracies

Its cold. Not as cold as in some parts of the country but still bloody hell cold.

The thing about it being cold and having to work in order to pay for one’s vices is that you need to actually get up and leave the heat of your bed and actually work. This requires one to dress for work. Which means finding appropriate apparel for work. Jeans are out. Well… the comfy jeans are out.
And you can’t dress like an Eskimo. Even though every cell is crying out that it needs to be covered up.
And it has to match coz the people who did decided to brave the cold and pitch have decided to congregate in the kitchen under the pretense of getting coffee just to play the winter edition of What not to Wear.

But the worst thing about working and winter is the prospect of the Air Con. At home you can revert to the heater but there is this insane rule in any corporate, no make that work environment, where it states the Air Con has to be on at least 15 degrees despite it being winter and the looming prospect of Eskom Blackouts.

But I get the plan, no one complains so when they stay away they blame said Air Con and thus justify their blatant laziness.

Maybe I’m wrong. But I’m frozen and my anger combined with the chattering of my teeth is impairing my judgement.
