Not working

I've been at work this week. Last year there was a difference of opinion over the obligations to provide support between Christmas and New Year (translation - I had booked holiday, but the development manager asked me whether I would be available anyway, while he went off on holiday to New Zealand). This year I decided to take holiday before Christmas instead, and come in for three days (while he was on holiday again - I have this naïve idea that leadership is from the front, will I never learn?).

I got some stuff done; the traffic was light; the office was quiet and fairly empty. Most of the people who were in spent at least half their time on the Xboxes. I don't know how I feel about that: if you aren't prepared to work, take holiday and if you come in to the office, do work is my principle. At least it made a change from people forever bothering me with their own core incompetences.
