The manager's office had a window behind his desk, so you could see in the window a reflection of what was up on his monitor. And what incredibly important managerial task was he apparently working on just before the meeting?

We saw it when when we were kids with our parents ( and all my friends that are now parents and used to be major druggies and were f*cking like rabbits by the time they were 13 are now doing the same thing. They have to preach to their kids to "just say No", "abstinance makes the heart grow fonder" and all the other PC crap) and we've probably all seen it with our bosses/supervisors etc (2 hr long "Martini lunches", going to the cleaners on company time, surfing the web, calling the insurance company etc, etc, etc). It's just part of life.
