Work Life Balance.

We got an e-mail at work yesterday about a place called the City Academy, which offers classes in drama, singing, dance and film. It's aimed at "City" workers who want to try something different, something not related to work. They have obviously hooked up with all the surrounding offices, because we can all get a 30% discount through work.

Sounds like a good idea, right? Leave the office at 5:30 for once and go to an evening class, instead of slogging at your desk till 8pm....Learn to tap dance, write a play or sing opera. You de-stress and your work improves; no more shouting at the wife when you get home. Everyone wins.

I was ready to sign up, then I saw the photos....

Err, why has that man still got his tie on?? It's a dance class, for goodness sake. I don't think the "tie police" would arrest you if loosened up for once.

And this guy ( at the back)...he's still got his suit jacket on!

Well, some people are beyond hope I guess. As Mr K-E said, you can take the accountant out of the office, but you can't take the office out of the accountant.
