Crammed in a Van

Sitting in a taxi not fitted with seatbelts, I spotted this group of young men on their way to work. Their van was crammed so full of catering equipment (chairs, tables, tents, and serving trays) — the workers who would be later unloading all that gear van were clinging to back and sides as the van tore down a busy city road.  Apparently the budget did not include a second vehicle to safely transport the human assets of the company.
