Uuuummmmm, I don't know very many people who 'work from home' who do much in the way of productive work!I have been working from home for some time now - at first I was working to a target so if I smashed out my required rate I could kick back and read a book.
Then I moved to another department on a promotion - at first ran off my feet, so working until 7pm with no overtime some evenings. Changed job slightly and now it is all chill. And as I work from a laptop it is cheers easy as I can move around the house.
As long as I keep an eye on my inbox and deal with anything that comes in that is needed I can crack on with more fun stuff. So far in the past couple of months I have:
Played way too much Assassins Creed - Valhalla
Watched a lot of porn - with attendant activities.
Watched 3 concerts on youtube
watched about a fair few ‘normal’ films. Well sort of normal - ’The warmest colour is blue’ and ‘Mulholland Avenue’ were amongst them.
Listened to a lot of podcasts
Worked out at home
Made a pizza base for that evening
Made a pot of broccoli and Stilton soup
Bought ton of crap online/amazon and had it delivered - next up is a kayak
Oh and of course read a lot of ARRSE and put up a fair few comments.
I have just assembled a side table, delivered earlier today (ordered whilst ‘working‘ last week) whilst in virtual team meeting - it was one where I knew I only had to listen so could multi-task. So far I have resisted the temptation to call on one of my, erm, ’special female friends’ to come over and crawl under the desk whilst I am on a video call in my study but giving it real thought now.
Has anyone else been guilty of misusing work time so much as I have?
