(Sometimes it is wise to look left and right before crossing the road, more so if a speeding car is heading your way. Image source: https://mikedelgrosso.co.uk/)
There are lifeless zombies that cross the road every morning near my residential area and workplace.
To others, they are known as factory workers – lowly paid, the repetitive task assigned and often “foreign” in nature. At their workplace, they are almost like the bee worker, working on a specific task 6 days a week, 12 months in a year. So, the use of their creativity and intelligence is probably limited to choosing the gravy or the flavour of their drink during their lunch break.
Other times, it would be sufficient if they could just follow the simple factory rules and meet the daily quota.
