So I am being turfed out of my small office with a window and a view of the dual carriageway and a tree with a pigeon nest, to make way for a new member of staff more senior to me. I have been relegated to a dank, even smaller office, with no window and a noisy aircon vent.
This is cruel and unusual behaviour. One gets used to a certain desk and how to hide one's internet usage etc.
Maybe it is time to change jobs.
