Dilbert (3/23/11)

Here’s how I know I’m a member of Generation X and not the Millennial Generation: the prospect of working from home does not appeal to me in the slightest. People who are only a few years younger than me seem to enjoy mixing their personal and professional lives. Not me. I regard such arrangements as something of a scam. They start innocently enough, with an employee checking Facebook or paying his electric bill at work, but then they mutate. Pretty soon, the poor twenty-something is answering e-mails at the dinner table and preparing presentations while sitting (slightly less comfortably) on the living room couch. Call me old-fashioned, but I’m perfectly happy compartmentalizing my tasks. If I have some pressing personal matter to attend to, I’ll take care of it on my lunch hour. If there’s an extraordinary amount of work to be done, I’ll stay late at the office.
