One wonders just how much the pleasure you get from belittling this most unlikely target group helps to assuage the deep seated doubt and insecurity you seem to have about your own life choices.

Today as I tuck into my reheated pork belly and rice, I will take heart from the fact that the selfless sacrifice of my grey existence has played no small part in affirming your decision to plonk yourself thousands of miles away from this dystopian nightmare

I'm a packed lunch fan, the last place I worked we had food provided but it was generally the same every single day, chicken/lamb biryani.

It seems that the trick is to live within walking distance of work so I've just had a look how much this would cost and the cheapest option that even theoretically replicates my current living arrangements - and which looked genuinely horrible - would cost me about 65% of my salary after tax, even taking into account no commuting costs.

So sadly it seems that I'll have to remain a tupperware wanker for the forseeable future and press my face sadly up to the window of Pret every time I walk past, like a Dickensian orphan.

So basically you don't do anything to them and hide in the corner nibbling a slice of spam.
