Romantic homeworking

A nice little piece by Andy Borowitz in The Huffington Post who points out that working at home (and indeed a garden office) greatly reduces the opportunities for office romance. As he points out: "When you're your own boss, you have no one to sexually harass but yourself."
"After using the bathroom one morning, I caught sight of myself in the mirror and, almost without thinking, I uttered these two fateful words: "Looking good." When I got back to my desk, I was rattled. Perhaps my comment to myself in the bathroom had merely been friendly, but a part of me felt that it was inappropriate. And that come-hither expression on my face was unmistakable: I had seen it many times before, most notably on my Match.com profile. No, there could be little doubt: I was my own boss, and I was hitting on myself."

  1. of course if you are working from the shed, then that picture of Sarah Beeny can keep you company.

    and of course if there is a significant other, then i'm sure you will get tea/dinner ready for them when they come home from work!!
