  1. Love Mandy’s take on real life. cookaburra’s interjecting on conference calls tends to discombobulate Emerald City inhabitants too. the bane of the home worker would have to be video conference. A must have is the demure button to the throat shirt, or risk cleavage cam. The natural reflex to adjust skirt & bum sweat, forward and up from your chair, creates cleavage cam close-up – the antithesis of gender neutrality which is accepted workplace de riguer. dare I say, a booby-trap
