'I owe, I owe, so off to work we go.' A Grumpy perspective on the daily grind. Whether we are celebrity chef or hapless waiter, engineer or oily rag, commissioning editor or TV producer, all of us have a whole daily wagon-load of s**t to deal with in the name of work. From boardroom to boredom, from 'what's the point?' to Powerpoint, from 9 to 5 to P45.

The workplace is a piece of cake for someone of his curmudgeonly quality.

Grumpy? I'll say we are ...
