Actually, I was being flippant, and started using the term in the
same sense that you did. But, somehow, the conversation wandered
- something that's not too unusual on this list. :-)
However, it's true that even telecommuters have to come into the
office now and again. Because I'm doing it so seldom, I find that
the few times I do rub shoulders with daily commuters, I wonder
how they can stand it.
