Scott McNealy’s Top Ten reasons for employees wanting to keep an office

10) Need a place to hang a picture of my chihuahua
9) How can I micromanage my direct reports if I can’t see them?
8) Naps and/or nooners with co-workers
7) Need storage for pilfered coffee, toiletries, condiments and kids’ school supplies, and the A/C is free too
6) We have to still work on “spare the air” days
5) I have self esteem issues
4) I prefer to make my pay by the minute phone calls in private
3) The public sector union work rules mandate private offices
2) Your spouse wants you out of the house, or you can’t stand being home with your spouse, or both
1) You can’t brown-nose virtually
