Dude...One of the hallmark attitudes of suitdom is to confuse
"working" with "being at work". Suits love power trips...they love to
stroll through a cube farm looking at all the busy little people over
whom they have complete control. It makes them feel big, because they
can't feel big in any other way. It's What They Do.

Having a willingness to try to live around a disability like that is a
very big thing. Congrats, man. I hope you can stick with it.
