One life

In the car park near Emirates Towers shopping boulevard is an Indian man in security uniform with four parking cones, a driveway, and no shade. It appears that his job is to endlessly place two cones in each half of the driveway - entrance and exit - and remove them when a car appears.

Presumably, he is counting the number of cars so the car park does not overfill and people double park, etc. Presumably, he blocks the exit so people don't try and sneak past him that way.

Of all the mindless, pointless, total utter wastes of a human being's life there cannot be much worse than this. To pay someone (doubtless a pittance) to move four cones backwards and forwards for ten hours a day, six days a week is an abomination to humanity.
