I thought I would do another post on some of the things you experience when you work from home – but I thought this time, I would write a piece on some of the worst parts of working from home. Don’t get me wrong, there are lots of things I love about my job; the freedom, the responsibility… But there are some unquestionably iffy parts to working from home!
See if you agree; here are four of the worst parts of working from home.
1. You’re Losing All Social Skills From Being Alone So Often
Sometimes you can go 8 hours without even needing to open your mouth and speak. On other days, you will have long, fulfilling conversations with your pet/your toaster/yourself. Either way, you’ve noticed you’re a little more awkward and stilted when you’re having conversations with other, actual human beings.
2. Sometimes You Wear The Same Outfit For Four Days
And I mean this seriously – you sleep in the outfit, you work in the outfit, and you relax in the outfit. Leggings are a genius invention. Of course, this is only because you’re so focused on work that you don’t have time to think about getting changed… Ahem.
3. You Feel Like Your Neighbours Judge You For Working From Home
Do they think you’re lazy? Do they think you’re unemployed? Do they think you run an elaborate drug ring? You’re not sure, but you feel strangely guilty whenever they catch you picking up your post in your PJs at two in the afternoon.
4. People Always Think You Have Free Time
Because you can choose your own hours, people always expect you to be free whenever they want to do something. Excuse me? I have to fit 40 hours of typing within the next five days, and therefore I cannot attend your sister’s husband’s last minute lunch.
