  2. Holiday is something you roll over to next year.
  3. You're already late on the assignment you just got.
  4. Your supervisor doesn't have the ability to do your job.
  5. Your relatives describe your job as "works with computers".
  6. Being sick is defined as you can't walk or you're in hospital.
  7. It's dark when you drive to and from work, even in the summer.
  8. You've sat at the same desk for four years and worked for three different companies.
  9. Contractors outnumber permanent staff and are more likely to get long-service awards.
  10. Board members salaries are higher than all the Third World countries annual budgets combined.
  11. There's no money in the budget for the five permanent staff your department is short of, but they can afford four full-time management consultants advising your boss's boss on strategy.
