Are you a stationed worm in the office?

Do you still hurry home as soon as the bell rings? But you know what, nowadays more and more people like staying in the office after work. They either work overtime, or surf the Internet, play games in the office. Some even keep themselves stationed there, do body-building and solve their love affairs in the office. In their office, you will find more and more private belongings. To them, their friends are their workmates. Why are there more and more stationed worms springing up in the office? Do you think it is an interesting way of live? Are you one of them?

I think that if you make your office like a home then it is very sad. You need somewhere to work and somewhere to pay but I do not think that it is at all healthy for them to both be in the same place. Here we talk a great deal about something called the work/life balance. This means that we need to ensure that whilst we work hard, we also get the essential relaxation to ensure that we remain healthy.

Thanks. To get a balance between work and life is very important, which is where I agree. But for the people like me who can finish their work in three or four hours but have to be trapped in the office for eight hours or more, why not introduce more fun to their office so that the office will become a place which they are not reluctant to leave, a place they are looking forward to or a place full of life? I mean in fact we should let our life enter the office rather than let the office enter our life.

If you are employe for 8 hours, but finish your work in on 3 or 4 hours tells me that you are underemployed. Why not ask for more work or go part-time. I have no doubt that the company will be delighted to talk to you about it.
