However, I would also like to be able to go to work and not feel physically, mentally and emotionally exhausted due to the every increasing pressure put on us year-on-year due to increased workload/ decreased staffing levels.
@mo Who doesn’t work under pressure – tell me one job where there is no pressure?
(I’m not really getting at just you, more about those who constantly are under the impression that they are the only ones who work under pressure – as if the rest of the workforce have no pressure on them at all)
On a train or flight I will acknowledge them and you can tell if they might have a chat or not. .
There is a strange law though, where people who you really don’t want to talk to once they get start, are the keenest to start and rarely take a hint of I’ll just read my book for a bit or rest my eyes.
Best and most interesting conversations have generally been on T bar ski tows. I can’t abide queuing and will always jump on the free space or invite any singleton behind to join me. Apart from reducing any queue, it’s surprising what a small and interesting world it is at times when you chat to people.
