Looks like people are back at work today. Roads gridlocked, pool full of the new-termers with their metaphorical new blazers and satchels. They won’t last, but the traffic is here to stay. Shame, it’s been nice to work over the last couple of months, being able to get around much more easily.
Why does everyone still drive to work and come home at the same time as they ever did? What happened to flexible working? Why don’t more people work from home a few days each week? Haven’t they heard of Skype, email or the telephone? My coach is in Melbourne and we seem to cope pretty well.
Not just a rant, though a rant it is. Seriously, the only way we’ll manage the population increase without total standstill on the trains and roads is if workplaces embrace technology better.
There we go, that’ll get you fired up for the new term…
