murphy monday

* The train to work is delayed. Note that this has never happened so far (since I started taking it to work), although this has happened on other occasions

* The air conditioning in the whole building is dead. Consequently, there's an open door policy as people rush to hack through the closed-window office-environment construction to let some air flow through. Being on the second floor, all hopes of circulation have already collapsed

* A great excuse to grab lunch except the place we go to has half its air conditioning paralysed

* A colleague gets a little rock in her food (the upside is, needless to say, her order is on the house)

* A wasp nearly enters our vehicle on the way home
