It’s one of life’s many mysteries, how can one hour feel like two when at work, and yet an hour at lunch pass by like a minute!? If you’re one of the lucky ones who love their job (I am of course one of those) then this may not apply to you, but if this doesn’t then I bet at least one of these probably do:
1.) A watched kettle never boils – It’ll keep bubbling as if just to pee you off, tempting you with that ‘click’ indicating the boiling water is ready to immerse your green tea bag!
2.) You’ve waited patiently for the fella on the cables (who has seemingly done every exercise known to man) before you pounce and stake your claim for 3-4 sets…and yet he still finds some weird and wonderful movement to do just to stop anyone else from using the ‘precious’ cables!
3.) The timer in the sauna HAS to be stuck, there’s no way I’ve only been in this baking sauna for 7mins! Those competitive souls out there (if like me) have probably set the challenge of holding out the full 15mins, for some unknown reason, everything has to become a competition! You feel as though your insides are simmering, sweat is pouring and you’ve got a bout of the fidgets…yet you won’t relent! Time goes SOOO slow when you’re competing with the sauna!
4.) You know you’ve probably got approx 1 min to check yourself out in the mirror until that chap in the loo comes out and catches you…then just as you’re assessing the symmetry on your back he appears prematurely and catches you pulling your most muscular facial! Time fly’s when you wanna check ya’self out!
5.) Microwave and Treadmill minutes are longer than normal minutes – No explanation needed, it's science : FACT!
