    A few, but then again, too few to mention.... :D

    There's a few people down the other end of the floor but no-one from my team are in this week. But then, being a contractor I wouldn't get paid if I wasn't here! :rolleyes:

    Felt I had to come in this week to help pay off for the TV, surround system and wii, not to mention the PC I got my (seperated) wife at Xmas so now she can continue to pester me via msn for more money! :suicide:

    I am working from home today, there are about 6 people in the office out of 50 normally there.
    I may get dressed soon
    Then again, I may not.
    But I am still working
    The commute was a real bitch though!

    Divert it to your mobile and go to the pub.

    if you have trouble diverting it, report a fault on the line, and the number can be diverted as part of the automatic fault reporting process.

    So let me get this straight - there are offices running with between 10% - 25% of the people who are usually there!!

    Overstaffing? Get rid of them !!:D

    I counted about half a dozen on a floor of about 50 odd normally. Parking was no problem for a change :rolleyes:

    Turned up at about 9.30, had a 2 hr lunch, chatted and took turns for tea runs with other guy in the team who was in and then left at 3.30.

    It was hard going I have to say :D

    Before I had kids I used to love coming in over Christmas as there would be very little to do and even less people in so it was money for old rope meaning I could save my holiday allowance for later in the year. Now our place makes everybody in the UK (and most of the other offices around the world) take the bit between Christmas day and New Years day off so you can't scam it any more, so there would have been close to zero out of a good few thousand Uk based people working for my company today.
