Four male colleagues are crammed into a small cab on their way to the dreaded work Christmas party. The cab driver is lost. He starts looking the address up on his Satnav, while the largest, drunkest, passenger takes exception to this.

“That’s a surprise, you’re not from round here, eh”.

The implication is clear. Two of the other men laugh, in solidarity with their boss. The cab driver remains quiet, but his eyes seem to be bulging.

As they approach the destination, the fourth man leans forward slowly, makes eye contact with each of the passengers one – by – one, warmly shakes hands with the driver, and whispers audibly.

“ Wasn’t it great to witness so much solidarity over George Floyd earlier this year”.
