I know, right?
While this is incredibly awesome, and not something they will pry away from me without much anger and despair and wailing, working from home is not all it's cracked up to be.
Herewith, my pros and cons:
Pro: No commute.
Con: Thinking that this means you'll still get up at your usual ungodly hour and accomplish some of those household/health maintenance tasks you simply don't have time for during the week, because of the hellish commute and the attendant tiredness.
Yeah, instead it's just an extra hour of sleeping in and then feeling like a loser shitheel because you are once again BEHIND in your day and you just woke up.
Pro: Not having to use a public restroom.
Con: Realizing you do, actually, use a lot of toilet paper and have to replace it more often than you are willing to tell people. Also, the cats don't want you to be sad and lonely, so they will follow you into the bathroom [or throw themselves at the door if you are foolish enough to shut it properly], meaning that your personal time just got weird.
Pro: Not having to work through your lunch.
Con: Actually making your lunch during the day, which seems like a lot more work than it does first thing in the morning.
Also, the proximity of those evil seductresses, yummy salted pita chips can be overwhelming and you
Pro: Blessed solitude.
Con: Feeling like you have to immediately answer IMs and emails from your co-workers so they don't think you're slacking off.
Pro: Not having to get dressed up.
Con: Still getting showered and dressed so you don't feel like a hobo. And then feeling like you've wasted a cute outfit on nobody, unless the UPS guy shows up, or you think of an errand you can run.
But who wants to run an errand? You've just had a tough day at work!
