Same old same old

Got up at half past six
Swigged cup of tea and pushed down piece to toast with butter and marmalade
Ran down road for bus, just made it
Sat on bus soaking wet, it was raining, and I forgot my overcoat
Jumped off bus outside tube station
Ran in, slapped oyster card on turnstile and rushed through
Stood up all way to my stop, tube heaving
Had a spare minute to walk to office and rain had stopped
Said hello to Jose on the door as I went in
Walked though office and said hello to everyone
Put packed lunch in desk drawer
Went to toilet to try and dry off with hand drier
Made calls to people who did not want to talk to me
Chatted to Mary as walked back from sink with cup of coffee
Made calls to people who did not want to talk to me
Went to toilet
Sat at my desk and ate lunch for half an hour
Chatted to Tom on next desk
Text girlfriend about tea tonight
Made calls to people who did not want to talk to me
Went to toilet
Got coke and chocolate bar from machine
Made calls to people who did not want to talk to me
Watched the clock in slow motion for the last hour
It dragged
Walked though office and said goodbye to everyone
Tube station packed
Oyster at turnstile and down escalator
Train heaving
Bus full, had to stand
Called in Tesco Local for few bits for tea
Got home just in time for favourite TV programme
Sat on sofa and ate tea watching TV
Called girlfriend planned getting together tomorrow after work
Watched TV
Went to bed
