Well, I'll be a monkey's uncle, when the hell did us Brits become a nation of married-to-the-job workaholics?
According to hugely unimpeachable research from Origin Storage, 73 per cent of workers in London will contact their workplace while on holiday. Some 54 per cent will check their email once a day while 62 per cent expect that their boss will try to contact them.
Mike, a chief executive from Barnes, was probably cackling and stretching out his braces when he said this: "I expect to contact my staff when on holiday. Can we really afford not to work all the hours in this economic climate? I think not."
But if Origin Storage boss Andy Cordial is to be believed (and I'll wager dollars to dimes that he is!), perhaps a bigger worry than all this workaholism is the fact that we're all running around foreign beaches using completely unsecured mobile devices. NOOOOO!!!
What Cordial neglects to reveal, however, is where we can find someone - anyone - offering some kind of portable encryption solutions. Where are you when we need you, Andy?
