I also think there are a few things that people need to remember while at work. Get your work done, try to do a descent job when you can. But at the same time, do not sweat it, if you need to make a 10 minute phone conversation, or take care of something personal, for a few minutes. There are some folks out there that truly believe that if they are caught "slacking" even for a moment, that they will be fired immediately. Seems to be an older generation fear that I have noticed. Most of the time when groups are laid off, it had nothing to do with the personal performance of that person. Worrying every moment of every day about loosing your job, is an unhealthy way to go through life. Just an observation...
