What I Learned While Working From Home

The Law of Inverse Email Proportionality. When I'm not in the office, no one emails me. When I am in the office, the email flows like the mighty Nile in flood. Kinda the opposite of the way it should go, right?

Friendly Reminder from Your Taste Buds. You still don't like peppermint gumdrops.

Pun-Ho. I'm a complete whore for a cheap pun. Example:

Type A: I would never ever complain about work again if only I could wear jeans.
Me: Seriously people, stop with the formal business dress. I'm attired of it.

Relative Merits of Fluffiness. Cats are much easier to work with than some of my fellow co-workers. And fluffier too...for the most part.

Stick This In Your HR Department. While at home, I can create a hostile work environment whenever I damn well please.

P.S. I would like to acknowledge the coolness that is Type A. If you haven't already discovered her, please do so. Like, now please.

Comments home you can pet your cats (as heavily as you like) At the office? Not so much.

debby beat me to it --- oh wait, that's a PUN, isn't it? :-)

Wow, I get to wear jeans to work every day and yet I still do nothing but complain about work. I suppose I should give it a rest huh?

I would include phone calls to the first item too. I hardly ever get phone calls. But when I'm out of the office suddenly I get a bunch of tech calls that are, of course, all emergencies.

This post makes me wonder...What did Dela wear?

I don't know...a new jersey, perhaps.

Not sure..A'll ask a.

HAHAHAHAHAHA!!!! Hey, quit complaining. You were the one who brought it up.

Heh. "Attired." Okay, but that's a funny pun. There's a difference, people.

Fabulous pun, by the way.
