    The secret to office happiness is working for your own company who invoice your clients, then having your office at the back of your house overlooking the garden with your dog at your feet.

    It's not that I'm lazy, it's that I just don't care.

    I make a point of not caring. It does wonders for my mental wellbeing.

    I have a fake rubber arm, that's why I'm always happy at my desk

    You keep telling yourself that you're your own boss and that you have complete autonomy.

    In the words of another member's witty sig: "Contracting is like plumbing. You're your own boss until you walk into someone's house and they tell you to take your shoes off."

    You clearly care what NLUK thinks. Which is odd. The rest of us only care what his accountant thinks...
