2014 Shaping Up To Be Quickest Year Ever, Work Colleague Confirms

fast train“It’s already February” account manager Jodie Burns told colleagues today. And if her predictions are correct, it will soon be March.

“And then it will be Christmas again,” according to colleague David Krieg.

But not everyone is buying the time-related claims. Office manager Georgia Burrows said she doesn’t believe it’s February already. “It was only last week that we were preparing for the end-of-year party,” she claimed.

    We bring it on ourselves. Just the other day, February 1 to be exact, I attempted to date a prescription receipt the 1st of March.

    I love how you guys keep posting stories on things I think about/talk to people at work about.

    I wish I had time to comment but time goes by so quickly there’s no time.

    If another year keeps racing ahead like this, pretty soon it’ll be going so fast that it’ll eat itself. That’s right, before we know it, it’ll be before we know…! Time will speed up so much, as we are ‘moving forward’, that’ll it begin to go in reverse, and there’ll be no turning back, from turning back. We’re not going to know ourselves as we move forward, back ever faster.

      Or is it “before we know it, it’ll be after we knew it?”

    Energy drinks such as Red Bull are now tax deductible.
    The old fashioned sayings such as “Hurry up I don’t have all day”,will be replace by the expression “Hurry up I don’t have all minute”
    Leap Years will be abolished and replaced by Velocity Months.
    The idea that clocks should be replaced by speedometers has universal appeal and time itself will be measured in nano seconds.

      Brilliant! You’re a future leader, my friend. I’d vote for… Ooops – too late. Damn!

    Don’t bother voting for me just cut out the middle man and vote for Rupert Murdoch,the Darth Vader of Australian media is rumoured to be about to patent the concept of time and erect a pay wall around it.
    Those who do not wish to contribute will have the concept of time increased, in that knock off time on Friday arvo will seem like weeks away and long weekends appear as a distant galaxy.

      A long time ago, far far away? I’m starting to see Rupert, News Corp and his evil minions, REALLY being like Darth, ‘The Empire’ and the commanders + stormtroopers. They could aim their Death Star mega laser at any spot on our planet, if we don’t comply. Crazy rebellious little me, continues to avoid his products, string pulling and paywalls – by simply not buying, reading, clicking or voting from/on/for anything to do with him. He even owns the ABC magazine ‘Delicious’…! Feck ‘im. (ducks for cover in case laser traces a line at my head or keyboard)
