Working in London
« on: October 06, 2014, 10:11:46 AM »
There is an article in the Guardian today with details of a survey which says that London is the city that most people would like to work in.  It is a fairly boring article but there was an interesting comment from "KellerCC":-

I teach in Thailand and many of my university age students say they'd like to live in London. Of course they've never travelled outside their own country. But there are all these famous things from London, you see: Big Ben and Buckingham Palace, James Bond and red buses, Arsenal and Chelsea. The world is full of people like this, who have only the faintest grasp of the reality there. All this survey means is that London advertises itself well. It doesn't mean the product is good. As we all know from discussions about the subject in the Guardian most people who live there spend half their lives complaining. For me all my WORST working experiences have been in London. Give me a unknown backwater town in the middle of nowhere any day!

"Unknown backwater town in the middle of nowhere"???  KellerCC just has to be from Korat!  Own up now.
If the old only could, if the young only knew.

Anyone who goes to a psychiatrist should have his head examined.
