From the gym

After morning gym class, I've started up 'where do you work?' conversations:

S: 'At X Inn and at Y Hotel, I do the finances, all that sort of shit, but I had a headache, I never have a headache, and when I rang in sick they wouldn't accept it. Said I had to come in, they had no-one to replace me. But then they found someone.'

A: 'I used to run a deli business with a friend - hard work, barrels of olives, 20Kg we had to lift. I worked recently, lovely people, but 8 am to 5.30 pm with only 30 minutes for lunch, and they didn't even provide a chair. I had to sit in the car and eat my lunch. I gave it away.'
