Working from home comes with a host of stereotypes and assumptions that the rest of world places on people like myself. I am often accused of working in my underwear, not showering through day-long stretches, not working and instead playing games all day and of course, being a drug dealer. And NOTHING perpetuates that vision from the outside world like an overnight UPS package arriving with the sound of rattling pills inside. This is what greeted me after my delivering smirked away:

Actually contained within are 28 jelly beans (get it, 28nm???) of a flavor I can’t quite detect though I am guessing they are somehow related to this. And of course, these pills are for "external use only" – a healthy warning.
The telephone number is listed as 905-555-7770 so you can probably guess what the hubbub is all about.
And while the directions state to take one tablet daily by fan intake, we were never one to conform.

PR-spin does not impress. Where’s the substance? Is there any? More PR BS more I suspect there’s something seriously lacking in the actual substance department.
