A new dimension to thinking about a "home office"....
Nearly one in five small business managers read work-related e-mails and other documents while in the bathroom, and 49 percent say they work while driving, according to a new survey commissioned by Staples Inc., the office-supply retailer with headquarters in Framingham.The driving one boggles my mind. I've recently seen someone on a hand-held cell phone in one hand, holding a document over the steering wheel, writing with a pen in the other hand. In stop-and-go traffic. How can this be smart?
As for reading in the loo...that's why the phone's "mute" button is so important to work-at-home employees.
