COVID has a lot to answer for! As the vaccine rolls out and we start to see the light at the end of the tunnel, we are left with some important questions.
Do we still work from home?
And, do we WANT to still work from home?
As I pondered these questions, I came up with the good, the bad and the ugly answers.
There are lots of benefits for sure:
-work your own hours
-work in your pj’s
-eat while you work
-take loo breaks whenever you want
-throw a load of washing on, or toss a cake in the oven while you work
-basically, multitask like a boss
Then there are the downsides:
-there’s no knock off time, those emails and calls just keep on keeping on
-juggling mother and house duties with work is overwhelming
-trying to keep the family quiet during endless zoom meetings
-knock off drinks start at 2pm and that’s not just on Fridays (hang on should that be in the benefits list?)
Let’s Sing About It!
I could go on forever, but if you’ve been following my posts, you will realise that my ponderings often end up in songs.
So here goes…
(Sung to the Transvision Vamp hit song ‘Baby I Don’t Care’)
Now if you add me to your contacts
And subscribe me to your endlessly boring emails
Please don’t think that I won’t block you
And add you to my list of major epic fails
And if you hit me up on facebook
And try to sell me pyramid schemes and gym memberships
I won’t hesitate to block you
Along with all my other defriended dipshits
Cos since I’ve moved my office home
My computer overloads
And I’ve learned to hate my phone
But, it’s alright
‘Cause I don’t have to get dressed
And I can stay a mess
I don’t even brush my hair
And guess what, I don’t care
Well, at first I thought that if I worked from home
There would be a multitude of benefits
I would save so much on petrol use my own loo and
miss all the office politics
But my dreams they quickly faded
With all the updates, lists and emails
Working from home has left me jaded
But, it’s alright
‘Cause I just blame the internet
And say I didn’t get It,
nothing has come through
Oh, gosh what can I do
But then came zoom
You could see into my room
I had to dress up
And put on makeup
I learnt to freeze and pretend the internet dropped out
I’m just so sick of being online
Even Facebook and Insta are a grind
I think some peeps are losing their minds
Cos all I see
Are mad conspiracies……
Oh honey don’t believe the emails scams and hacks
That promise you a millionaire
The exotic single prince is fake
And so is the pill to grow your hair
Nobody microchipped you
Get out of the house and get some fresh air
Trust me when I tell you Switch off the internet cos it’s a jungle out there!
