I'm also having a bit of a weird day at work. Our long-standing volunteer was supposed to be doing paid work today painting and decorating so wasn't supposed to be here, but he turned up here instead, resulting in several abusive phonecalls from the contractor (at around 1pm, he was supposed to turn up on the job at 8am) which we could all hear.
He has now taken the other volunteer to the pub and they have been there for over an hour, my other colleague is at some function or another, and I am here by myself - and I haven't had anything to eat yet today
I can't leave the office, because when the new volunteer returns he will be locked out as he doesn't have keys.
I don't begrudge them a drink, they give up their time for no pay, but couldn't they have waited until after I had been to lunch? I'm starving
