14. Even without video, any computer work time is (or can easily be) clocked. If you stop to think...

...or to get a cup of coffee, or stop to pee. The Great God Technology has you on an invisible chain, and it can be yanked.

This observation of mine goes back decades, to when laptop computer manufacturers were running ads showing happy adults taking happy kids fishing or to the beach. Look! You can multitask! Your kid gets precious time with you while at the same time you productively work on your laptop computer. Riiight.

Jobs like my husband’s are really rare. He and his team work remotely and are paid for the finished product or ongoing process, and time is pretty fluid. Thank God this arrangement was grandfathered in.

The latest new boss wants to see people right in front of their supervisor, being physically monitored — or he did until India (where most of the workers who code now are) slammed everything shut because of COVID 19. Now they’re at home for the duration, but I bet he checks their computer logs to make sure they are giving full value as to time.
