YES. THIS

That's been the gist of my reply to this question for about 30 years now.
It never ceases to amuse me how bent out of shape some people get if you refuse to answer until they do.

Seems to shut them up though when you talk about being precisely at the mid-point between work and home.
At that stage, the question I've asked stops seeming so trivial Laugh | :laugh:
