“…from where you sit…”

From the movie Wall-E by Pixar

From an e-mail I just got:

You have been selected at random to participate in this study, and I hope that you will help us understand how the electronic revolution looks from where you sit and how it affects your role as a faculty member.

Gee, thanks. Since, you know, I wasn’t already depressed about the fact that I waste my eyes and the rest of my body by sitting in front of a computer screen most of the day. Thanks for modifying a perfectly good idiom to account for the perverse quality of my work circumstances.

Thanks, dear reader, for standing sometimes. It’s good for you.
