I work for a large computer company that makes everything from Itty-Bitty Machines to Incredibly Big Machines. A couple of years ago I was reclassified as a work@home employee as a cost cutting measure since all of the people I work with are geographically dispersed (in fact, only a few are in the US).
Being a work@home employee, much of my work day is spent sitting at home emailing and on the phone in teleconferences. fortunately, I have a headset and a cordless phone which affords me a certain degree of mobility.
Yesterday, a meeting was going particularly long. Nature was calling and I decided that I couldn't wait any longer. So, I took my phone into the bathroom to heed the call of nature.
This isn't the first time this has happened to me. My biggest fear is that, one day, I'll forget to press the Mute button. Or that someone will ask me a question, or say something that I have to respond to at an inopportune moment. That would be so embarassing ☺
