I won't even take a radio to work. No distractions allowed. Focus, focus, focus.

That's nothing...I have a customer (Chinese), who lives in a very large expensive home, and loves to play Ping Pong. Every time that I go over to work she and her husband always ask if I want to play a game or two. In the summer I will schedule them at the end of day so that we can get a couple of hours of play in. She is awesome and he is pretty even with me.

I had to go over last week and decline a game, but had to go back today to follow up. It was around lunch so I took some time and payed a few games. Well two hours later I decided that it was time to go back to the job the guys were working on and help a little before a late afternoon estimate.

They still don't know what I was doing for those few hours, but they don't have to. I am the one that stays up till 1am putting things together (or on CT)....never mind.
