    This picture looks just like when I temped there ages ago! They had moved the Financial Officer’s function there, and they still had the cafeteria and pineapple juice fountain. They also had bikes all over so you could get around. Do you know those women were not allowed to talk to each other on shift? And the smell — even watching them from the luna’s catwalk, that cloying pineapple perfume nauseated me. (I still can’t confront pineapple)
