Cam You Dig It?
Hi. I’m a journalist for a high-profile national publication who specializes in writing articles
shilling for middle managers at large corporations who fear that employees working outside of their direct oversight might call into question their inflated salaries about mental health. And I want to say, it is my expert opinion that you shouldn’t buy this webcam.
You see, having a webcam like this–one that’s easy to install, with a high-quality 1080p video signal and the ability to zoom, pan, and tilt–can lead workers to attempt something dangerous
ly empowering known as “working from home” or WFH for short.
Trust me, I’ve done the research. Working from home might sound fun, but it’s very bad for
that dude who likes to knock on your cubical wall like it’s a door and say, “Got a minute?” you. You might start strong. But the temptations will grow. Soon, you’ll be stepping away for the short breaks that are legally allotted to you to engage in all sorts of distractions around the house like putting in some laundry, or preparing yourself a fresh, nutritionally balanced, and affordable lunch hard drugs.
But even if you manage to avoid narcotics, dangers still lurk around every corner. For example, what if you set up your home office near a window? You risk
a constant reminder of what the outside world has to offer, and clear visible signs of the day’s progression, allowing for a more natural sense of when it’s time to log off staring into the sun and hurting your eyes.
And, again, this is all made possible with a webcam like this. Because if you’re only hopping onto a video chat for some work-related issue, how will you bond with your
way-too-extroverted coworkers who don’t understand personal space and believe your continued employment within the same company as them entitles them to your friendship? Seriously, all work and no play except for the various fun things you can do during breaks and immediately at five, because, hey, no commute? That doesn’t sound very fun, does it?
Anyway, just thought I, a journalist who knows a thing or two about this stuff, should offer my two cents. But I gotta wrap this up now. Because the coffee shop is closing.
Yeah, of course, I’m at a coffee shop and not an office! I’m a writer, not some fucking brain-dead worker bee! LOL! C’mon!
