I don't understand why people like brunch. What is the benefit of combining breakdancing and lunch?

Friday night I think I'll switch the car tires over and remove all my personal stuff, including the hardwired V1.

I still will be trying to pick up another day at work, plus partial Sunday shifts maybe every other or every Sunday. If I get a half shift Sunday every other, and another full evening shift every week, I'll boost my monthly income as adjusted for full year to about $390.

I almost rolled on an hair dryer on my way back at work. I think it was because of le foie gras lying on the other side of the highway.

I walk out of the building, and here three guys walking by discussing how the building is going to implode not explode. Their leader states that the walls must be really strong and the support structure inside weak to accomplish this. His comrades concur.

I didn't bother correcting them. Whatever they learn will be expunged every night in a haze of booze.

They decided to update the cafeteria.

Let's install a new touchscreen register interface.
The good: it's simpler, so you can train new people on it more easily.
The bad: you rolled it out the day before matriculation, and the top speed is lower.

Let's raise the floor, closing the sunken dining area, making it all one uniform height.
The good: well, now you don't have to tip toe down three steps carrying your food. The floor is solidly constructed too.
The bad: it's sealed wood instead of crenellated stone. It'll stain more easily, damage more easily, and it also increased acoustic effects.

Let's replace the one year old ceiling tiles with new ceiling tiles! These ones will be smooth, instead of having nooks and crannies.
The good: less dust will collect/fall.
The bad: they reflect noise instead of absorbing it. Consequently, combined with the minor floor effect, the building has gone from being noisy when occupied to thunderous.

In a typical work day, let's see how much work the average worker here do:

8:30 to 9:30 - Let's talk about what I cooked yesterday and how yummy it was...and oh! did you watched that very informative show that told us that when it's really hot outdoor you have to drink lots of water? I didn't knew that!

9:30 to 10:00 - Work

10:00 to 10:25 - 15 minutes break

10:25 to 11:00 - Hey, I need a coffee, i'm heading to the coffee machine

11:00 to 12:00 - Work

11:50 to 13:40 - Yeeaah lunch time

13:30 to 14:30 - Hey there, how was lunch?

14:30 to 15:00 - Work

15:00 to 15:35 - 15 minutes break

15:35 to 16:30 - Work?!

16:22 - In the car on the way home
