Christmas Decorations

Several people have decided, the Gods alone know why, that our concrete box of a mess room has to have some Christmas decorations. Sorry folks but it’s like putting cheap Thomas the Tank Engine wallpaper up in the Auschwitz Gas Chambers. The whole effect is ghastly. Barely painted breezeblock and Motorway underpass brutalist architecture highlighted by twee tinselly streamers and a plastic something that is meant to look like a Fir tree but bears a closer resemblance to the bastard offspring of a Chilean Pine and a Saguaro Cactus. To cap it all, the decorations were arranged by someone who has all the decorating flair of a hyperactive spider with a nervous tic. Blu-tack has been heavily applied.

If you find this offensive to read about, take pity on those who are forced to work there. I know we do an unpopular job but this is just sadistic.

Maybe some holiday music on a skipping gramophone?

The laugh you just gave me will keep me going all through Christmas when I will feel like I am the only person left alive on the planet. SP

Bwahahaha! I think you've described the Xmas-time lunchroom of most of the places I've worked over the years. My current one is a former store room. It still says "Storage" on the door. We're actually going to be decorating it this Friday for the staff Christmas potluck. No Blu-tack, however...

Exasperated expatriate expostulations all the way from British Columbia, Canada. As if anyone really cared. Oh, I also watch Icelandic Volcanoes and seismic activity. Don't ask me why.
