Top 10 WORST things about work from home

So, while the world was being gripped with fears and overproduced dentist masks, there was a silver lining. In a very sincere mail, your company CEO announced that you can work from home.

You were numbed from happiness.
Not seeing boss every day. Bingo.
Not making small talk with colleagues. Bingo.
Not wearing pants. Jackpot.

But good things have a habit of sucker punching you with bad things. So, what are the worst things about working from home?

1- Work Timing? Who dat? - Working from home means you're working 24/7 and your boss can call you just as you're about cuddle your pillow and make sure your beauty sleep is ruined.

2- There is a lack of continuity in the office gossip - How are you supposed to know if Sheila from accounting ever went out with Nuna from Sales' ex-boyfriend?

3- Your mom thinks you're jobless - Mom has decided that working from home is a sweet vacation for her child to spend some quality time listening to her rant about the price of onions. Makes me want to cry.

4- Loneliness is scary - At this age I would welcome a monster under my bed for company. Don't get me wrong, my internal monologues are always entertaining but the undeniable itch to fight with another human being makes me go mad.

5- Adventures with food - Gone is the excuse for never entering the kitchen, now when the food delivery money runs out, YouTube tells me I can make fried butter in 10 mins. Needs just 2 ingredients which is more than what I have.

6- Zoom on zits - Eating all that fried butter has led to my face trying to play connect the dots. So, when my manager asks me to come on video, I can see a beautiful, distorted version of my face like some 1950 circus mirror.

7- Locomotion deficit- It's true, after sitting for 19 hours straight my knees creak like a haunted house and I take 2 steps and decide that a little bit of hunger might help my crying liver.

8- Fashion faux pas - forget formals on top and pajamas on the bottom. How about sitting in front of your laptop in the only things that fit you - underwear and a poncho.

9- You now know your boss' son Tommy's favorite thing is to hit him in the back of the head with a Lego toy not of his choice. Or how your co-worker's aunt can't find sugar or your client's cat's vegan food is missing.

10- You can procrastina-

Oh, yes, YES. BUT, why...why me?
Now I see that I’m not alone, and that’s DAMN FUNNY🤗❤️💕

Fashion faux pas challenges are real! I've had my fair share.

And what about going on a rant about the length of the meeting without realizing the mic's still on? 🤣

Your ending tho, "You can procrastina-"
You took me out there, friend! 😂

The worst thing for me is having to listen to all the rants by my mum. She always has something to say. It just drives me crazy but what can I do 🤣🤣

True. She's like coming in between meetings pretending to be quiet.

I felt sluggish and remembered a man who lasted 6 months working from home and, when I saw him, I didn't recognize him because he was so obese and the amount of hair he gained. I really love the loneliness and I found out that at work people are aware of everyone's life ha,ha,ha,ha,ha,ha sincerely laziness is something worldwide @diebitch

🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

funny thing is that everything you said is so true, especially when mom starts ranting and taking the opportunity to give you double work thinking you are at home but really you are not HOme. boss spoiling that sleep and some things having to were the upper part of dress at video calls, leaving who knows what under there.
All pack new frustrating and sh**t we got to go through.

Hahaha, this is really good!
I work from home for over 4 years and I definitely know what you mean + I have a 2yo child...

In my country, we have a saying - " Thanks to the laugh to tell the bad news .." sounds the same like working from home. There are lots of benefits but lots of disadvantages as well!

Haha like today. We had a meeting with my boss and the team. The boss is giving tasks to everybody, when my time for a task came the meeting looked like " Hey you have to make 2 reports about Bla Bla and La La account (in the background my son "No NO NO Nononono MAMAAAAA" - silence. Then he continues also you have to send me this and that ... my son "A A A apple, b b b BABYYYYY"...

Dress sense has gone out the window. I've had a few meetings with just a shirt on. Its not as weird as those wearing masks on video calls though. lol

Hahaha I literally had a poncho I threw on. Masks help if you're smirking.

Haha, I've worked from home for quite a few years now while my bf was first still at the office until the pandemic happened. We both know now, putting on clothes is optional some days :) lol
