    Sounds like a terrific waste of time! Hey, I fancy stopping working and driving my remote controlled robot around the office for a bit, while still at my computer.

    Working from home is so you don't have to interact with the filth that is in the office, this defeats the purpose ;p

    It's the first thing I thought of too from the image, and its pretty coincidental that that episode has just been on.

    Just imagining the boss's face when you wheeled into the office makes me want to do it.

    Question is, can it swipe my ID pass?
