Every Emotion You Feel When You’re Hungry At Work

April 5, 2016

You skipped breakfast because that extra 10 minutes is the difference between reaching work and actually dying in traffic.

Now you’re sitting in the office on an empty stomach and it’s making all your coworkers seem even more annoying than usual.

You are just there pretending to get work done.

You look at the time and it’s just 10:00 am; a whole two hours before your lunch break.

You wait 30 minutes and check again and it’s still just 10:01 am.

Now you are sure your village people are doing you strong thing.

After what feels like a whole day, it’s finally 11.45 and you can see the finish line in sight.

That is when your boss decides he wants to do a ‘brainstorming’ meeting with the team.

But who brainstorming don epp?

You’re just sitting in the meeting, watching your whole life flash before your eyes.

Everyone else is actually brainstorming and your brain is just there running on reserve.

As if that’s not enough, no light and the generator goes off.

Then that oversabi colleague decides to ask you what you think about ‘the proposal’.

Propose kini?

It’s 1.30pm and the meeting finally finishes.

You use your remaining energy to sha reach the buka.

Only to get there and they tell you your regular order has finished.

You return to the office angrier, hungrier and weaker than you left.

Then you spend the rest of the day trying to not to pass out.

You sneak out before closing time.

…and somehow still get stuck in traffic.

But it’s all good because LaCasera and Gala have been saving lives since 1990.
