    Our office is strangly empty as well.

    Has pig flu struck in a ’28 Days later’ fashion overnight?

    Must. resist. masturbation. jokes.

    I wouldn’t risk it, had a similar situation last friday and at 3pm when I was thinking about bailing out, boss rings from London on desk phone, not mobile – I’d have been busted.

    Boss#1 showed up at 0830, read his paper, “gone out for a bit”
    Boss#2 just arrived……not wearing socks. A good sign methinks.

    Wonder if I can be back on my fixie by 1400…..

    Gucci loafers, no socks, pink shirt, chinos……not its not a look i’d go for myself but I reckon the fella is half way out the door already.

    Boss#1 just came back….sitting at his desk reading the Telegraph. i’m seeing reasons for optimism. may have to move my target up to 1330.

    Divert your office phone to your mobile and go riding ๐Ÿ˜€

    Im lucky as I agreed to help out with a camping trip that the kids at the school I work for are going on to Exmoor this weekend so got into work late ‘packing car’, casual clothes ‘cos Im going camping’, heading off after lunch!!

    Oh and bike is packed for cheeky early morning ride on Exmoor this weekend!!

    Anyone else got a job that involves speaking to people in Europe? There is absolutely not a bugger anywhere today apart from us, our office is almost empty here and the SUN IS SHINING!

    Yep all the time. ๐Ÿ˜‰ For us we have lots of people in India and the states that I talk to. Indian guys come in early and the states guys come in late so I invariably end up having to work early for the former and late for the latter. The worst bit comes when I have to make changes on equipment based in America so it has to be done their evening time which means logging on at 3-4 in the morning.

    SO STOP COMPLAINING! ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Actually, I could do with some quiet time to do some drafting….

    (And, thankfully, the Yerpeans* aren’t bothering me today.)
