Like the opal card, but... free.

2. After your morning meeting, you'd get a nice 15-20 minute break for morning tea or "recess".


3. Not to mention 45 minutes to an hour for lunch time. EVERY DAY. With NO interruptions.

4. And as a bonus, your lunch would only cost a few dollars - because you'd have an awesome, super cheap canteen to go to.

14. You'd have some sort of mandatory sporting activity every week, like gymnastics.

Great team bonding.

18. But your working week would ALWAYS finish on a Friday.
