You’re in the middle of a terminally dull meeting, listening to someone drone on about something that appears to be vitally important to them but nobody else. You’re staring out of the window, not listening, just gazing and wishing you could be out there. Anywhere but in the meeting.

And then it hits you. The feeling that if you only had the courage or didn’t need the money, that you could just get up and walk out, never to return.

Anyone who has ever worked in an office has had this moment but very few of us have ever been able to follow up on that fleeting fantasy.
