For the most part, it’s fun working from home but there are days when I miss the human interaction, HI, times.
Like when my Boss K and I sat two cubes apart and the guy in the middle always had bad gas in the afternoons. He would actually let them rip too. The first time it happened I sat there thinking, did I hear what I thought was a fart? It happened so frequently that Boss K and I would IM each other back and forth…..”did you hear that one?” or “he parted my hair with that blast”. I miss those HI times. With cut backs, jobs going other countries, buildings being closed we’re now at a point where the cubes are shared between two people. Lots of changes have happened since I've moved to San Diego four years ago. I have a new boss actually #3 since Boss K, the gas guy left the company and I’m working from home 100% of the time. No need to share my cube with anyone plus I get healthy fresh air breaks by going outside with the pooches between meetings. If I ever feel that I need some HI time or have a bunch of pictures to print, I can go in and work from a guest cube. For the most part though, I love working from home because at any given time I can step away from my desk and walk into the living room to see the kids and how Ziggy has rearranged the furniture. Little shithead.
