You’ve just been sacked…………why not become a Supermodel?

  It hurts doesn’t it – not having a job? Whereas once you feasted heartily on Duchy Originals’ Organic Stem Ginger All Butter Shortbread Melts every day, your snack diet now comprises of little more than bumper packs of broken pink wafers from the local cash and carry store.

10 instances where people qualify for ‘That Guy’ status in the office
