Every morning at 9, the tiny little kitchen area on our floor becomes a hectic scrum of bodies as people arrive and start making cups of tea and coffee and fixing various breakfast things all at the same time. Everyone’s stepping past each other or around each other, grabbing kettles and reaching for bowls and rattling around for cutlery as they mumble their “Sorrys” and “Good Mornings”. It’s a twirling, chaotic display of bending, ducking and twisting that I’ve cheerfully dubbed “The Breakfast Ballet”.
So what are the regular rituals at your workplace? Do they annoy you or have you grown rather fond of them?
