I must admit that in my job it is easy to develop a little chip on your shoulder. The number of times people make googly eyes when I tell them what I do and that yes, in fact, I am currently working from Thailand, is staggering. Nobody cares that I am not only working double right now because I am doing my dive master training while still doing my regular job nor that my credit card is crying each time I use it. Or that it is, in fact, raining right now and I am stuck with a salad that is probably going to give me a heart attack (bacon, crumbed chicken, Caesar’s dressing, croutons deep fried, and five sad leaves of Cos salad).
Don’t get me wrong – I don’t mind any of it and secretly I love the fact that the chicken in my salad was crumbed, but I am not on a constant holiday. So when someone makes comments a la ‘Oh, I’m happy I reached you, I never know where you are on holiday at the moment’, I have a hard time holding back a snarky comment.
