GEORGE spends Saturday, Sunday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday afternoons in the pub with his friend Derek. He wishes he could spend every afternoon in the pub with Derek. They talk about tomatoes and picture frames. He enjoys Saturday, Sunday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday afternoons thoroughly but on Mondays he works on the tomatoes in his greenhouse and on Thursdays he updates his picture frame collection.

PETER was walking home from the bus stop after a hard day's work as a security guard at tesco. Peter was 48 and had held the same steady job for 27 years. John, a fellow security guard at tesco had been there for 2 months and 3 weeks longer than Peter, and due to this, was head of security. Peter resented John for this and as he turned onto the street where he lived, and was raised, thought about how much of an arsehole John was. 'ARSEHOLE' he shouted when he got into the house. He did this around 3 times a week. He really hated that guy.

'Good morning' ANNE sighed as she heaped her bag and coat onto her desk. 'Good morning' answered Matthew. This had happened close to every single day for the past 3 years, 7 months and 6 days. Now 7 days. Anne and Matthew worked in the same advertising office. Their office, shared by 6 or so others, was identical to countless other city block offices. Matthew had been in love with Anne for the past 3 years, 7 months and 2 days, now 3 days. Anne had loved Matthew the same, give or take a day. Anne always said 'Good morning' and Matthew always replied with 'Good Morning'.

SIMON slammed his £3 pint of lager down on the table and said to Andrew 'I hate this place'. Andrew took a calm sip of his and said 'Well why do we come here everyday then?'. Simon leant back and drank his lager.
