20 Reasons to Work From Home
December 30, 2019 • 11:25 PM
There is a mandatory fire inspection at home.
The pipes broke and I have to wait home for the plumber.
I have furnitures delivered to my house.
I didn’t do my laundry. I’d have to show up stinky.
My dog is sick from the mushroom he had from the backyard and he cannot stop drooling.
I’m having a minor cold and would rather stay home than call in sick.
I am sick. I condemn the weather.
I had a food poisoning. I think it’s the truffle clam chowder I got from that place 4 days ago. Please don’t ask details.
My partner is sick.
I just had teeth removed and my cheeks are so swollen I don’t feel like meeting people.
I have a dentist appointment. It should be quick.
It’s Friday. Let me say it again. It’s Fuck-it-Friday.
I work from home on Tuesdays.
It’s Christmas Eve. It doesn’t make sense to take a 1.5-hour commute to work just 3 hours, have lunch, and return home.
I have an interview with another company. Of course I don’t say that and I’ll pick from one of the other 19 reasons.
I need some alone time to do some work without interruptions.
My best friend is getting married. I will go wish the best of him but I can’t guarantee this is his last wedding. And I have more than one best friend, and they are all near the marriage age.
It’s my partner’s graduation. One can only get one Ph.D. in a lifetime. Or two.
My parents are in town. I want to take them to places.
I got to the office only to find out that I forgot my laptop at home.
Let’s stay in touch!
