Been open fourty minutes and no one else has shown yet.

Biggest group of slackers, EVER. How hard is it to show up on time? One guy only lives five miles away. And how about a phone call. Another five minutes have passed, still no signs of employees

One of my co-workers comes in anywhere from 11:30am. to 1pm. The funny thing is no one says a word about. Not even the bosses!!! I'm eating lunch by the time he shows up.

If I show up 40 minutes late, I make sure to stay 40 minutes and that makes a 40hr week and I'm good. As long as I get my stuff done, everyone's cool.

Some of us have jobs where we're allowed to surf the web if we aren't actively occupied.

For example, it's so slow here right now, if I didn't surf the web, I'd be staring at the wall. At least this way, I'm staying awake.

I work semi-flex hours. If I show up 40min late I take it off the 100's of hours of OT I have acrued.

At any other job I was never late though

They encourage me to surf the web, read books, whatever -
to keep me from getting bored and quitting (which is what would happen)
