Mobile office man set up in diner sparks online discussion

An online photo showing a man working at his tablet computer at a table in a fast-food restaurant drew mixed opinions from netizens, Metro Daily reports.

In the photo, uploaded Monday, the man, who may be in his 30s or 40s, was seen with his tablet suspended from a stand and using a wireless keyboard neatly placed in front of his food tray in a McDonald’s outlet in Prince Edward.

Some internet users said his “mobile office” was a creative idea.

But one netizen said the man was an example of salary workers in Hong Kong who had to endure a miserable working life, as they were still tied up with work while eating.

One poster suspected that the man was just trying to pretend he was a hard worker.

Another mocked the Hong Kong government, suggesting that a shortage of land had forced the man to make do.

Many netizens gave the man a thumbs up, saying his setup was probably more comfortable to work at than using a laptop.
