I think I need to have a kid, so I have an excuse to take two hour lunches, to leave whenever I feel like it, and to "work" from home whenever I want to. That is the only reason I can see that office mate K can get away with that.
Sorry to all you parents out there. It just ticks me off that he can do that, and have no problems, when I get "gently scolded" if I come in later than 10 one day a month.
I don't mind parents working flexible schedules, or even telecommunting every now and then. It's when people take advantage of the system, and when they don't accomplish what they are supposed to accomplish while they are here that I get ticked.
