Oh, the aching office life.
Countless arguments with bad bosses — and co-bosses and co-co-bosses — and strict rules about lunch hours and where (not) to park and mean admins and obnoxious co-workers.
Let’s find the positive in this.
I present to you “Modern Tips for Surviving Your Awful Office Shit Job”, a compilation of observations — some brutally exact, some completely irreverent — but all deeply helpful in this odyssey of tips and lessons and thoughts I’ve collected over the years.
The essence of the book is to laugh at the insanity of the situation, and to be brave and accept things — for now — until the door to a better life opens.
And it will.
