Our new offices are in the less salubrious part of town (I think I mentioned before they are very close to the Kingston branch of 'Poundland'!!!). The office is down a shopping arcade, and just outside there is a coffee shop with some outside tables. Now, I'm not a snob (!) - but I really don't want to share my breaks with people carrying all their belongings in two tatty carrier bags (sing along with 'Streets of London') - and sadly needing a huge amount of attention in the dentistry department. Today I went out to grab a sandwich and as I walked back down the arcade I had to breathe right in to make myself as slim as possible and avoid 'touching' anybody else as I walked past them. You simply don't know what you might pick up from them...honestly I know that you will think I'm exaggerating - but I'm not - really!!! It's hideous!!!
