Although I miss working from an actual office every day, there are various perks that I’ve enjoyed by working from beach home instead.
The first thing I love is that I don’t have to share stale tea with pretty much everyone else. The tea in our break room is consistently cheap & stale & nobody buys the nice tea creamer. The next thing I love about working from beach home is that I can use our own lavatory. I love having a moment to myself in the comfort of our own home. I don’t have to worry about anyone waiting outside the door or leaving any odors. The second thing I’m loving about working from beach home is the control I have over the temperature. The thermostat setting was a daily confrontation in our office because there were over 20 people working under 1 room, someone was consistently too hot or too cold. Things became so bad with the thermostat settings that the manager had a lock box localed over the thermostat so it couldn’t be touched. The manager was the only 1 who had a key to unlock the box. As you can imagine, a lot of people were unhappy with this decision. Now that I’m working from home, I don’t have to worry about getting into an confrontation over the temperature. I can set the thermostat to whatever temperature I want, because I’m the 1 who owns it. I’ve enjoyed it so much that I’m hesitant to return to the office. I suppose pretty much everyone else has grown comfortable with their own thermostat settings.
