It was sort of unusual to see the look on my boss’s face when I told him that I was opting to stay working from home.
This was really the last thing she thought he’d be hearing from me.
And I understand how she felt this way. It was myself and others who was hollering from the rooftops when the decided to close the office due to the pandemic. I was so not ready to leave the zone controlled Heating and A/C of our offices for the air conditioner at home. But my choices were limited. Either labor from lake house in my own air conditioner or be out of a job. Of course I chose to labor from home. This wasn’t something that I took to even though I suppose that was in giant section due to attitude. But my feelings about working from lake house began to change after a few months. I got accustomed to the online meetings among other changes. But what I really came to enjoy was the fact that I really had control over my schedule in a new way. As long as I was there for meetings and such, I could pretty much labor even though I wanted. My labor really improved which is saying something as I was pretty good back in the zone controlled Heating and A/C. So when I told my boss that I was taking the supplier option of staying home, she was stunned however blissful that I would still be churning out good work. The office at lake house is the equal of my outdated office now that I had a ductless heat pump installed inside what once was the guest room.
