World becoming increasingly unsuitable for my lifestyle

"Work Life Curbs Greece's Healthy Napping Custom"

NPR--For most of history, climate shaped the way people lived their everyday lives. In some of the world's hottest places, people still take a midday siesta. But modern life is making that a rarity, even as science shows that napping may be good for your health.

I don't know if I want to live in a world where, even if it's a place I've never been to or will actually visit, people don't take siestas. In my perfect world, conversations like this would echo through office lobbies.

Secretary - "Mr. Jenkins' office."
Boss - "Tom Jenkins, please."
Secretary - "Mr. Jenkins is taking a nap sir, may I take a message?"
Boss - "What? Why is Jenkins sleeping in the middle of a work day?!?"
Secretary - "Because fuck you, that's why."

I don't want a real job or an office. I just want a secretary to tell people to fuck off for me.
