12 struggles every office worker faces on a sunny day

Oh to be in you, sun.

THE WEATHER IS fine and we’re all feelin fine.


We’re in work, the struggle is real.

1. It’s virtually impossible to bunk off

Even if you’re really sick, WHO’LL BELIEVE YOU NOW?


You may even consider doing something drastic to get time off. Yup, you didn’t hear it from us.

2. The commute is more hellish than usual

Oh no sweaty man on this smelly bus, please, come closer.

What appears like this on the outside:

Feels like this on the inside:

Walkers don’t get off any easier, arriving to work like an oily mess of sweat and regret.


3. Picking the right clothes is near impossible

Officewear + warm weather = itches, sweat, general comfort levels that are akin to wearing a ski suit around the ninth circle of hell

Don’t get us started on uniforms of any description. We want SHORTS.

4. It’s too hot for coffee, but you need energy

Ice it? Ewww.


5. The temperature indoors is either Arctic or sub-Saharan

The aircon is either left on minus 106 degrees, or it’s non-existent and you sit beside a window feeling like you should keep a fire extinguisher handy.


6. Your view is teasing you

Speaking of the window, no one needs to see others having fun. See all that? It’s not going to happen again for AGES.


7. All efforts to distract yourself on social media backfire horrifically

Further confirmation that everyone in Ireland is having more fun than you, right there on your office computer.

8. The clock actually goes in reverse

The more you want to get outside, the further away that moment gets.


9. You say ‘hope it’ll keep for the weekend’ every three minutes

It’s all anyone can talk about. But you know, deep down, it’s hopeless.

10. Lunch outside is nothing but a bitter taste of what you can’t have

Tis better to have never known what you were missing out on. Now you’ve to go back to the dark stuffy office.

11. When someone eventually goes on an ice-cream run…

You get distracted and melts. Nothing is fair.

12. It just begins to fade as you leave to go home

You missed it. All of it.
