Sorry but who wants to be tied to a desk any more? Anyone?

BYOD is fine in my environment, its secure and I have hexadecimal safe words, I mean passwords.

Well my night shift is over so I'm off to bed with my Samsung strap-on.

Wearing mine as I write.

I hate to repeat myself but, I received a Samsung strap-on for Xmas.

My sister gave it to me. I'm not proud but I'm still enjoying it.

Off and on.

I'm wearing it proudly right now, seems to be the only way, mind you.

I'm tempted to give it to someone else, just to spread the love.

No one wants to be desk-bound these days, its all strap-ons and hand jobs, sigh.

What's the world coming to? - Won't anyone think of the children?
