When one types "paternally," I must chime in, for I've been in this
business since Al invented the Internet.

I respect your opinions and believe as you do, that you two Bruces would
not be happy working for the same employers. And I believe it is a
great thing that you both recognize the kind of managers you would enjoy

It's a matter of how much respect one is comfortable with from their
managers. Such a waste of time does not seem respectful to me. And I,
too, have left my chair in the boss's office when he took a long phone
call. In my opinion, that is respectful of his privacy as well. My
managers never took offense at such behavior.

I'm old enough to pass on those jobs that have managers who exhibit a
penchant to waste time continually in the way described.

I am particulary blessed that I don't mind working at a bookstore if I
must in order to find an environment that suits me. And I'm also lucky
that my skills are such I've not had to do so.

A stimulating conversation, all 'round.
