#112 – Lead

I wonder if office workers that quit smoking miss the excuse to constantly get away from their desk. Do they invent new activities? Get a new pen out of the supply room every hour? Walk across the building to make some photo copies then a half hour later walk back to shred them? Go put a bunch of money in the vending machine, pretend to decide on a selection and then just hit the refund button?

Today’s Biff is shaken, not stirred.

      So you’ve noticed they have no joining limbs, and your objection is that /collars/ couldn’t work?

    Actually, as a quitter myself, you find other things to do; office politics, bear baiting and lots and lots of solitaire.

      So does having a job where you could have taken lots of breaks if you didn’t sit right outside the boss’s office.

      Or, driving a big rig, you can SEE the restaurant you want to go to, but you have to drive by because the parking lot designers hate big trucks. >:-(

    When I quit smoking, I was General Utility (read “Dishwasher”) at a major family chain restaurant… as a smoker, I would take advantage of the hourly take-out-the-garbage-while-you-change-the-water-in-the-dishwasher routine to go out and have a smoke… the day that I quit, I was searching for things to do in that time… those counters had never been so clean!

    Hell YES! I miss having a reason to go outside and get some sun. And there are people I used to talk to all the time that I never see now. I so miss smoking… 🙁
