Is it just me or was there a lot more office romance contained in our VHS tapes from a decade or so ago? Is it because plotlines followed a more sitcom format back then or was there really a lot more 'deskwork' going on outside of the handsy office parties?

I wouldn't dream of it these days and I think the last time I saw an office couple was about 10 years ago. Maybe for bar work but certainly not in a career setting.

Innuendo and smut has gone out of fashion. People don't have affairs at work anymore.

I wonder what the older generation make of it. Particularly the old hens. Although in a way I guess everyone has been sleeping with the people in their office the past year or so.

There's always been workplace shagging going on quite a bit in my two careers, though neither are/were strictly office/cubicle type jobs so maybe that's why. It's a lot easier to sneak off for a shag (or just engage in relentless flirting) when you're a bit more of a free range employee.

I think sitcoms just did it because everyone's always interested in relationships, and it's a smoother way to add those stories than to have to set half your workplace sitcom in a completely separate, non workplace situation.

And I hate to be the one to break it to you lad, but The Thin Blue Line was certainly more than a decade ago, it was aired nearly 30 years ago. And now I have the theme tune in my head, such as it was.

Thin Blue Line was 16 years ago mate - 1995. I know it looks 80s in some aspects but you have to remember it has a gay bloke in it trying to get in the knickers of an ethnic woman.

That doesn't change the fact that Thin Blue Line came out 16 years ago in 1995.

There's been multiple affairs at my place, even affairs that break up relationships, to then become relationships, which break up because of affairs. Real soap opera level drama.

Again though it's not an office environment, and I suspect the banality of being confined to a desk staring at the same spread sheets all day every day has a lot to answer for. Gossip spreads faster when half the place are fucking menopausal Stasi officers; the office environment was a petrol soaked tinder box for the spark of #metoo and all that to fall on.
