C'mon. Cut the poor guy a bit of slack. Don't you realise Chandos is stuck in the land of the Diddymen and jam butty mines, where they use the 1st generation keyboard.


Up there, the world looks very different from their perspective.

There are some people in life who are skivers, I've seen it in offices myself - People nipping to the "loo" for 25 minutes 3x a day.
Those people would do that Chrissie_Red is a naughty person wether they are in an office or not, they are just lazy people and unfortunately there isn't much an employer can do in that situation. You can't really tell people when they can or can't go to the "toilet".

On the other hand I've seen my husband working from home a couple of times and I'm amazed at how much he gets done. He doesn't need to commute, he doesn't have to get up to make the office coffee (I make him his coffee when he is here) and he doesn't need an hour for lunch because I will make his lunch for him. Then again he is probably the least "slacking" type person I know. 0 sick days in 7 years and even if he is granted time off for bereavement he will still nip into the office to do some work.

It's all down to the individual and their self discipline

When you are dead, you do not know that you are dead. All of your pain is felt by others. The same thing happens when you are stupid.

I recall having "office" jobs where vast amounts of time were wasted, distractions, chatting, tea breaks..but it depends on the person and the job doesn't it!

Only one thing is relevant..is the job in hand finished to the required standard and on time which doesn't seem to happen much in the corporate world, most of which work from offices?

I often think that those who work in offices should try the self employment route? Of course there is also increasingly a move towards both sexes taking more time and responsibility for the family. This is positive and at last catching up with many European countries.

The whole "office culture" with it's waste of duplicating energy consumption, time wasted not working, and lack of flexibility to accommodate people's real needs must change....life is not about routine, sitting in traffic jams or crowded trains both ways every working day of your "life"..if you can call it that!!

I except there are some jobs where working in one location is desirable but there are so many that are not required, thankfully, and achingly slowly the culture is starting to change...
