>OK, I’ve been asking this question for the past 10 years and Chris Colin over at the SFGate has answered it. Who the hell are all these people not working when I briefly dash to the store in the middle of the day? My office, nay my building, is full of people at work from 8ish to 5ish.
I think there are a lot of people taking the day off “to be with their dogs” if you ask me. Although if you are an independent contractor or own your own business, you pretty much make your own hours, so I guess there could be a few of those people wandering around during the daylight hours.
Can you imagine BOREDOM being the motivation for getting a job? Me neither.
I’d be curious to see if the same result is found in the ‘burbs.
