There has been much moaning and gnashing of teeth since the word came down a week or so ago that we would be relocating sometime shortly after the start of the new fiscal year. I view the relocation as a handy excuse for promoting telework for all the same reasons upper level management at LNA does: relieve pressure on office space, reduce the demand for parking, elminate stress from people's lives. Whether or not our manager (who really does not like the concept of telework, even though she works from home herself on a regular basis) will accept an increased level of telework by the peasants in her fiefdom is still debatable, but she may not have much choice.
In the meantime, I'll just keep looking at the countdown calendar and thinking quietly that no matter what happens, fairly soon it's not going to be my problem. Now if they'd only add technical writer-editors to the list of occupations LNA wants to offer buyouts to in an effort to entice people to retire, I'd be a happy camper.
