In July Bord Gais – Ireland’s biggest domestic gas provider – announced a 22% increase in their prices, from October 2011 onwards. A mere 4 weeks later, this image started circulating the media:
“Chairs?” you say? Chairs indeed. But not just *any* chair, no no, this are state of the art office implements that will make the lives of Bord Gais workers so much more enticing. Not cheap mind, at an average grand each, the total purchase of 380 chairs quickly adds up.
But I’m comforted by the fact that by paying 22% more on my gas bill, I’m contributing to great office environment. Aren’t you?
