Quotable Friday, Vol. 23

16 May

“But thank goodness almost every office worker in America has virtually untethered access to the internet. Imagine what would happen to our economy if employers started taking away internet privileges and people were forced to actually work.  The entire American economy is balanced precariously on the fact that the average American white collar worker spends only about 20 percent of his or her time actually working.

How did the cubicle kids waste time before the internet? Daydreams? Productivity seminars? Interoffice romances? Midday martinis?”

–“Dutch”

Sweet Juniper

I will not confirm or deny whether this has been my experience as an American office worker, because this blog is a public site.  But.  Dutch does have a point.
