Days like today make me want to hug my boss [Mar. 10th, 2005|12:31 pm]
Mike
My boss is on vacation today and tomorrow, then off to our center in San Juan next week.
Two other directors are leaving for Vegas today.

I got a phone call from the window company and it seems our new windows arrived yesterday and they want to install them on Monday.

My boss called me to ask me to pull some figures for him, so I asked for Monday off so I could be there when the windows are installed. He said that since he is out of the office and 2 directors are out, that he needs me to work. I said "Ok, I have them re-schedule". His response "Why dont you just work from home on Monday?"

I'm hope that by letting me work at home on Monday, that he'll let me work at home more often. I seem to get 10x more work done at home than I do in the office. Believe it or not, less distractions at home.

Hugging Bosses is Good

Hey....it is strange that you do tend to get more done at home than at the work place...same thing happens to me all the time. I know other people, my brother for one, that can not work from home as he becomes very preoccupied with everything but work. For me, the phone and fax are not ringing constantly so I can get shit loads done!

Re: Hugging Bosses is Good

I have people in and out of my office all day asking me for stuff, so it makes it hard to get my regular work done. When I work at home, I may take more breaks and slack off more, but I seem to get more of my regular work done. Plus, if people know I'm not in my office, they wont ask me for any special projects
