Lyrics: Left: swipe in e-mail in trays out trays phone ringing good morning finance scheduling a fag break spreadsheet management with a meaningless conversation photocopying Right: swipe in start up kettle on consultation filing archive another cup for concentration fag break backache co- ordinate administration call up back up databases marketing Centre: Stuck in the comfortable, a means to an end makes ends meet, the same old same old, and you’re growing old indifferently. Even after you promised to stand in front of the mirror each morning and ask yourself… Are you satisfied? Do you derive any Satisfaction? Boss: So, Christopher, this is your 4th year with us now? Hmm. I must say, you have a pretty impressive looking file, with exemplary performance in the areas of stapling and personal hygiene. Perhaps there is some room for improvement in your etiquette however. Several of your colleagues have reported instances of social ineptitude on your part, including a particularly unpleasant incident with a coffee urn. Despite this, we are delighted to announce a rise in your salary, by 0.8 of a percent. This concludes your end of year report. Do you have any questions? Are you satisfied? What’s the beef bitch? Cat got your tongue? Do as they did before you. This constitutes progress. Be proud to be that middle man! Super hero 9 to 5. Satisfy.
