Am I insane for hating remote working?

Jul 11 18 Comments

Work at a company where you can work from home Wednesdays and Thursdays. I don't like working in the same place I'm sleeping, because that effectively means I'm never leaving that place. Also makes me feel lonely.

You can work from office on Wed and Thu but you'll be pretty much the only
one.

I'd prefer it if my company didn't have the option to work remotely. Am I insane?

    Go to Starbucks and work from there. There will be plenty of people to keep you company.

    So to sum up:
    - wfh sucks cuz you don't like to work in the same place you sleep.
    - working from office is not an option, cuz you'll be alone there.

    So is it coworkers that you miss or the environment that is not professional enough?

    Trust me, if you complain and your company changes the policy, you won't want to see those people anymore (or most likely the other way around)

    When I work remote I like to go to coffee shops or breweries to get out of the house. Maybe try that?

      Breweries is a great idea. I should try that

      Most brewery taprooms will be closed during the day though? Unless you're only going to optimism.

    I'm partially with you. I hate not having that separation, but don't mind the empty office for a day or two per week. Good time to get shit done.

    Or make the most of it. Get an Airbnb someplace nice and work from there once in a while.

    Not everyone likes to work from home. I guess you can get ready like you always do on a workday, but pick a place for that day. It can be a starbucks, bookstore or even a beach (if you figure out power and wifi). Also, you can consider working at shared spaces around you. If I were you I would prefer to keep all my meetings or collaborations during time at workplace, and use remote options to get some things that require focus and less distractions.

    You’re insane if you want the option taken away from everyone.

    But just you? No, you sound like you’re more productive in office and get more free time that way.

    Explore coffee shops around your area. I'm talking about Hipster/cool coffee shops. Those $5 coffees bring your coding skills to another level.

    Sounds like it's an option? On Fridays most people in my dept wfh, but I still go in for the same reason.
