Ha ha! No, I prefer to go into the office and interact with my coworkers.
But I'm not a morning person and I'm thankful for a job that allows me to come in later than most of the other employees. The focus is on getting your work done on time and doing it well, allowing artificial constraints like dress code and official working hours to be set aside.
I thought I was the only one who feels that way about both! But then, I also happen to think that programming languages reached an apex when Borland released Object Turbo Pascal, the only human-readable OOP language ever developed. C and C++ eventually reversed that positive trend and set maintainability back by a few decades...
That was definitely a game changer. $99 made a real language compiler affordable to the masses, even though Pascal was intended to be a teaching language.

Yes and no, IMO. C++ brought some good ideas, but it also started what I consider a bad trend -- creating a morass of objects and derived objects to model the world of the application at a given snapshot in time, which meant we had to change the program every time the concept of that model changed. We entered into the world of basically unmaintainable applications. But that's a longer discussion.
