Used to work in a bank branch in London which handled Jonathan Ross' Channel X business. Remember him thrusting his baby, Betty, at me as he needed to grab something from his briefcase...

Just thought I'd name drop....

Don't get me wrong, I love kids, but I don't understand this either - they always looked scared shitless, and some of the ugly ones I find quite repellant.

I would never inflict my child or my colleagues on one another, unless they asked to see it, then would arrange something out of the office.

Call me a coldm, heartless biyatch - but that's the was I see it.

Blimey, some baby haters here. I love kids and am happy to have them around even at work (not regularly of course...unless they refer clients to me ) - without kids we sort die out forever as a species making human effort ultimately pointless in the grand scheme of things

I love my own kids, but fail to see the attraction of someone else's little bundle of joy being paraded around the workplace....

I think its a ploy by the big bosses to see whos broody then they know not to promote those ones as they'll be going on maternity leave sooner rather than later!

Personally I don't get it- but then Im not clucky! the ammount of cooing and awwing in my office Im surprised they aren't all up the duff (although think a fair few are trying!)

I'd like to be able to get a dog and take that into work every day- would keep my feet warm under the desk it could also bite people when they piss me off! mwahahahaha
