The time is now 11 AM. Do you know where your co-workers are?

I arrive at work every morning at 7:30. Most of the time I am exactly on time. Precisely. The rest of my co-workers don't have anything like a set schedule. In fact I never know if any of them are going to come in at all on any given day.

Today I know for sure that boss and co-owner will not be here because they are out of town. There is only one other person who might come in today but he hasn't arrived yet and I'm not certain if he will.

I must say it is very odd to be the only person "working" at your place of work. Not only odd but also more than a little bit lonely.

I hope you are having a very nice, socially fulfilling day at your chosen place of employment.

Our work hours are from 8:30 to 5:30, and yet I am one of the few here at 8:30. Everyone filters in around 9:00 and curiously, seem to leave at 5:00. Hmmmm.

P&D, do you suppose we are the few people on the planet who take work hours seriously? It completely stresses me out to no end if I am "late" when there isn't anyone who would ever know if I was!
