I have a long-standing joke with my Work From Home friends about having to put on pants every day. Sometimes putting on pants really does feel like the biggest chore ever. And I don’t get to work from home, so pants must be worn daily. But, in some ways, working in an office is just like being at home:
- People open a new milk and leave the old milk in the refrigerator for the rotten milk fairy to deal with.
- The dishwasher silverware container has 2,734 forks in the front of it and 1 lonely butter knife in the back because no one could be arsed to actually pull out the rolling drawer.
- Everyone blames the dog for farts. (We actually don’t have an office dog anymore, but we used to, and he really was the farter. I promise.)
- The plants are all dying because I forgot to water them.
So, see, it’s almost like working from home. Except that I have to wear pants.
