It was sort of odd to see the look on my boss’s face when I told him that I was opting to stay working from home.
- This was absolutely the last thing he thought he’d be hearing from me.
And I understand how he felt this way. It was me 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 Air Conditioning of our offices for the a/c at home. But my choices were limited. Either work from new home in my own a/c or be out of a job. Of course I chose to work from home. This wasn’t something that I took to although I think that was in immense section due to attitude. But my feelings about working from new home began to change after a few months. I got accustomed to the online meetings among other changes. But what I absolutely came to care about was the fact that I absolutely had control over my schedule in a new way. As long as I was there for meetings and such, I could pretty much work although I wanted. My work absolutely improved which is saying something as I was pretty great back in the zone controlled Heating and Air Conditioning. So when I told my boss that I was taking the supplier occasion of staying home, he was stunned but blissful that I would still be churning out great work. The office at new home is the equal of my outdated office now that I had a ductless heat pump installed inside what once was the guest room.
