Picture Week Part 4 - Irony

That's a freight container you are looking at and the driver sleeping in a hammock under it. It's the summer and with a little breeze, it can get very sleepy even in 30+ degrees heat.

Loading a container usually takes quite a while and so while waiting for my guys to finish loading the container, the driver decides to catch 40 winks. A good plan if I may add. Otherwise, I risk having my goods strewn all over the highway as a result of the driver dozing off.

Hmm... better to let him sleep.

Here's the thing. So there I was, looking at a guy who drives a container truck for a living and earns a fraction of what I am earning.

Yet, ironically, I am the one looking out the window, from my air-conditioned office, at him in envy.
