    Default Breakfast at desk

    You have got to be kidding. I'm trying to get hold of the BA and he's off in the canteen buying his breakfast at 9.30am.

    Breakfast at desk should be stamped out. Can you late breakfasters not get out of bed 5 minutes earlier?

    Turn up to work with your game face on ready to graft.

    Personally I get up at 5am to cycle in to work and be at my desk by 6am. I don't see that 5 minutes in tesco makes any difference to anyone.

    No sh*t.

    I've seen this in a lot of different places over the years... hell, the place I'm working at now people go down to the canteen and bring a full english back to their desks and proceed to eat it while attempting to work! Of course I couldn't do that as I can't use the canteen because I can't be seen to be part and parcel of the organisation for IR35 purposes...

    Up at 6:15, Shower, Roll a smoke, on the bus, in the office for 7:30. Bowl of Cereal and a coffee.

    I'm a contractor I manage my own time.
    Never has a man been heard to say on his death bed that he wishes he'd spent more time in the office.

    They have a 5 O Clock in the morning now as well! I thought that was when you went to bed.

    It always amazes me how people rock up at the time they are supposed to start work drop their bag fire up their PC then clear off out to costas, starbucks, surely they should get one on the way in and be at their desk ready to work.
