In the further efforts of the “Corporation as Life” campaign at work, my office has parents bring their kids in to the office in costume on Halloween. They lead the hordes of kids around to trick or treat around obliging cubicles, which for the preceding few weeks have been been a source of excessive amounts of sugar for those of us with little or no self control.

Today, one particularly annoying co-worker stopped in passing while carting his spawn around the office to sarcastically remark, “Boy, you guys sure look like you’re working hard!” Much as I would have liked to respond with, “Well, I guess we are in fact at our desks trying to do some work rather than walking around inflicting our children and their high-pitched shrieks on people who have things to do!”, I simply laughed the hollow corporate laugh and went back to work.

    I’m SO glad somebody else noticed that bullshit.
    …having a technical discussion on con-call with kids screaming in the background… that’ll make you want to hit mute and scream STFU through the cube walls in a hurry.
