My boss is awesome, which is not only true, but a good way to garner bonus points for my annual evaluation. (Unfortunately for me, was just completed. Someone remind me to repost this next year.)
I'm giving the flexibility to do my job the best way I see fit and as long as I get my work done and do it well, she's cool giving me the freedom to spend too much time on Twitter or write blog posts when things are slower than usual. She's even ok with me watching baseball at work, which isn't the actual reason I asked for dual monitors for my office but it doesn't hurt.
So now that I've said all that, it's nice to know this is an option should things ever get really bad.

Just remember, you actually have to be trying to form a union before you try this.
