catapple : our office environment is also laid-back. I wouldn’t get fired or anything if they saw me with my phone but we’re employee owned so the more productive we are, the more money we all end up with.
We also never run out of work. If I finish a task I move on to help a co-worker with one of their tasks. It just seems weird to me that people have downtime at work but I guess it’s all about what industry you’re in.

We work in the same company so pretty much constantly on the company messenger when we’re not in separate meetings/super swamped. It’d be too much for some people of course but it works for us. 🙂

We work at different places so I don’t usually talk to him unless it’s before work, during my prep or lunch, or until work is done/on the drive home. To me (personally) it is unprofessional to text or call during the work day when it’s not necessary. Also, as a teacher I would be setting a poor example if I didn’t give my full attention to what I am doing at school! If I do reach out to him or vice versa it’s generally a quick check in or chat about something we’re doing later or logistics (appointments, getting home late, etc).

Some days we text, email or message pretty much constantly and others we barely even get a chance to say “hi” until the end of the day.

MrsBeck : I help out co-workers, too, but there’s only so much I can do because of how our work is. We each have large projects we manage, and sometimes things are really busy and sometimes they aren’t. It depends on which part of the cycle I’m on and other factors. Even if I am busy, I text my SO on my lunch break or will take 30 seconds to text him back during the day or just text him to tell him I miss him and love him. 🙂

catapple : oh I do that too. I voted that we talk occasionally throughout the day. It just seems strange to me that 24% of bees who voted have enough downtime that they talk “pretty much constantly.” But like I said, different industries I guess!

We talk most mornings when before one of us leaves Darling Husband runs his own business, so his schedule varies. Usually quick texts throughout the day to answer questions that come up, or just to catch up on how our days are going. I wouldn’t say constantly, as we are both busy in our careers, but we usually always have a conversations happening…

We usually send one another smoochie faces via text once or twice a day, but his work is pretty engrossing and I’m with patients most of my day and do not keep my phone on me during work hours.

Not too much! Calls and texts don’t get through to him unless I call his office landline, which I don’t unless I need to since it can be disruptive. He usually calls on his way home to see if we need groceries or if I want to meet him out. We’re the opposite of a super attached couple lol. Even on the weekend I’m either working or we go do our own thing. I like to go to yoga and have some alone time since we can be introverted but work closely with people a LOT. We’re really close but we don’t have that constant daytime contact.
