Ponder this during your next teleconference

Ten percent of telecommuters work nude, according to a new survey by SonicWALL, an Internet security company. From that piece of information, I am able to reach a further conclusion: At least 10 percent of telecommuters have no kids.

Three quarters of employees believe they are more productive working remotely. (The survey did not mention whether there is a correlation between productivity and clothing.) Telecommuters are more likely to be lax about Internet security and about personal care. Only 12 percent use encryption and only 30 percent of men and 44 percent of women shower on stay-at-home days. On the other hand, 21 percent of telecommuters sneak in an afternoon nap.
