The takeaway here is companies that truly want to assist worker health should invest money in options like free exercise classes and gym reimbursements。 They should encourage employees to go outside and actually walk around, not simply stand up at their computers。 And maybe it means that everyone who insists that standing up is the only way to work can climb down off their high desk。

这表明,真正关心员工健康的公司应该把钱花在购买免费运动课程和报销健身费用上。公司应鼓励员工走出办公室,四处走走,而不是只在电脑前站着工作。或许这意味着那些坚信“站着是唯一解决办法”的人终于能从高高的桌子上爬下来了。

WEDDING!

婚礼!

Yes! People spend a lot and consider it to be the most important part of their life! I don‘t know why!

是的!人们总是在婚礼上花很多钱而且认为这是他们人生最重要的部分!不知道为什么!

Work hard your asses off for nearly 30 years and spend 75% of your savings on your daughter‘s wedding! Heaven forbid, what for? Just to show those people who don’t give a fuck about you, your spendings? Work entire life for this ONE day? Sacrifice everything, all your more significant wishes for this ONE particular day?

你做牛做马辛苦工作将近三十年然后把你75%的积蓄花在你女儿的婚礼上!天理难容,为了啥?就为了给那些并不在乎你的人展示你的积蓄?工作一辈子就为了这一天?牺牲所有事物、所有更重要的愿望就为了这特别的一天?

Well, it‘s high time we change our sick minds! Instead go, do charity to please your soul! Go travel the world with your family! Enjoy your life to the fullest because life happens only once!

好吧,现在是时候改变我们错误的观念了!去做慈善满足你们的心灵吧!去和家人一起去周游世界吧!尽情的享受你的生活,因为人生只有一次!
