Every workplace has it’s own set of personalities. Your co-workers are often more present in your life than your own family, and sometimes they are often the people you want to spend the least amount of time with.

You wake up and check the time. It’s 7:00 AM and you have a Chemistry exam at 8:30 AM. Your school is an hour away which means it would take you half an hour to prepare and another half an hour on the Skytrain to get there.
