Wheels On Fire

Today was a shitter, only punctuated by an excellent lunch break with Brizie, Anonymous, Guitarman and the Anarchist. As well as not feeling well at all, those at the staff meeting (which I didn't attend due to fear of impending vomiting, which, luckily, didn't materialise) took a decision that I was really pissed off about. The boss, in an effort to promote a healthy work environment and healthy lifestyle, put in place a policy where those who don't smoke get extra day's leave.
But there are those who decided that this is divisive. 
So it's not divisive to spend half your day going out the office for a fag and rely on the non-smokers to cover for the selfish fag-smoking "workers" then?
Now, I'm not saying that all smokers are selfish workshy lazy sods - oh, alright then, I am!!
The company also subsidise gym membership, so next thing we'll hear those very same smokers and their idiot allies saying that, because they can't be bothered to exercise, this subsidy should be shared by all employees in their pay packets. Well, they can fuck right off!
The other thing that I was pissed off about today was the fact that I missed one of the great  sporting spectacles - that of the Tour de France  making its way up one of the highest peaks of the 21 stages, L'Alpe d'Huez.
I love Le Tour and believe that it is one of THE sporting achievements and makes for great viewing on the box.
Eurosports' commentators are always a treat. Although I've kept an eye on the reports of this year's Tour, I've not really watched it much, next to nothing of it actually.
Lance Armstrong is heading for an unbelievable sixth triumph in the event. I read his autobiography a couple of years ago - a great read, an inspirational invidual, with the only down side being his recent friendship with US President Bush. I suppose we can't all be perfect, though.
The boy has just gone out to play, with a watch on, so hopefully there'll be no late returns like we've had over recent days.

Re healthy work environment, staff who dont drink alcohol should have extra weeks leave since they are not prone to extensive periods in the toilet throwing up while other non drinking staff do their work for them. All drinkers and their idiot pals should be excluded from polutiing the atmosphere of the office with their drink fumed breath. Never heard of passive drinking bro.

Smokers are such sensitive creatures...pity they're not so sensitive when it comes to putting in a FULL day's work!

What a confusion of "issues", bro. I think we both know what you are really angry about and it isn't fag breaks.
