Albert learns that some work looks a lot harder than some other work

Albert feels proud as he steps back to admire the wardrobe he has just built from a flat pack.  For once, he can see and touch the results of his labours.

This then reminds him of when he was working at home for a time while there was work being done on his house.  Real men were knocking things down and building walls.  Meanwhile, up in his bedroom, Albert was tapping onto his laptop, responding to emails and writing reports.

“Well, I’m actually working very hard as well,” Albert decided not to say to the sweating workmen when he ventured downstairs to offer them cups of tea.

  1. I’d take Albert any day.

    He has the BEST sense of humor. That’s very important. Great go of it, Nick!

  2. Ah, the satisfaction of a successfully constructed flat pack .Well done Albert. The cup of tea trick with workmen -good idea-it says “I appreciate your hard work, you deserve this.” (now drink up and get a move on, the noise is disturbing my concentration).
