Subject: RE: BS: Help! My Job is a Dilbert Cartoon!
I voted to put some color in the walls of our new cubicles when they were put in last year, but was voted down. They're beige.

I telecommute a lot, because my cubby is next to the boss's office door, and it's a lonely place to work. No one EVER comes to visit. I'd rather work in my own space, and in my bathrobe if I feel like it.

The other day I was working from home and my boss emailed to ask if I would handle getting some photos to a journal that is writing out about our library, and to include a head shot of himself. I suggested we get a new shot, and could he go over and do it that afternoon? I thought he was at the office, and he thought I was at the office as we emailed back and forth. I finally realized he was on vacation in England while I was at home in Fort Worth. Our desks in Arlington sat there empty as we worked elsewhere. Nice! (I'll get the photos next week).
