The Office

Our first day at work is more like the BBC program "The Office" than we would have liked. Bottom line: the IT infrastructure at WonkaTech is a mess, and we will have plenty of work to do, providing there's a budget to do it.

It was a 40 minute commute from our home in the NorthWest, which is not bad at all. Of course, we didn't hit a single patch of bad traffic. I did make a couple of wrong turnings though, all the time watching the petrol gauge drop below 1/4 full. Should have topped up the tank before today. It would not do to arrive late on our first day at work!
