@Pony Few years back a friend name Leo threw a BBQ party for friends and family in his big back yard. He has 2 horses, a real goat, 3 dogs and a rooster. During the party Leo decided to move the chicken pen away from everybody, so he picked up his rooster and handed it to me. While holding his rooster awkwardly, I turned toward the party and yelled at the top of my lung: WHO WANTS TO TOUCH LEO’S COCK? The whole party went from 11 to 0
The smallest, most useless bedroom of the house has basically been my home office for nearly the entire time we have lived here. I didn’t have a job at first where I could work from home, but about 18 months later that changed.
Now, however, my wife wants me to remove the tiny bed so she can move her desk in there. I’m not sure how well that’ll work out thought since we’re both often on conference calls most of the day
@guyfromhawthorn don’t do it. my husband and i are both working from home atm and when we are sitting in the same room it gets annoying very quickly. He has his ‘work’ voice and I sit here and think ‘what an ass, i wouldn’t work for him’. But seriously any type of phone/conference call and drives the other person crazy. Plus he likes it quite, when he isn’t on a call, I want music. So we are always butting heads. So he is now on the couch with his laptop, I’m in the basement (home office) on my desktop. Life is good.
@guyfromhawthorn@Vrysen I agree with her- my husband is in the den (where he already wfh often) and I’ve been at the dining room table. I would not want to be in the same room with him at all! He’s on conf calls often and I’m not but still I wouldn’t want to listen to him talk all day. I like that he can close the door when he’s on calls too
I have a large house with many empty (now) bedrooms and my wife insists in working out of the living room. Now that I’m at home not working all day, I’ve found myself sitting in there keeping her company and thus completely ignoring anything productive I could possibly be doing.
Last year I began working from home permanently, all over the house. Most of the time I am in the dining room at the tables, there are four sewing machines in a small room next to it, I have some equipment in the basement (air compressor and miter saw), and, for tall items, I work up in the living room. The problem now is having two other adults at home.
When I am working I work online 100% of the time. Only two room apt. so not much choice. Lying on the bed or sitting in the chair in the livingroom/kitchen. I have competition for either space from cats.
@moonhat Now mine would want to be ON the keyboard LOL. Another one would be off to the side with his little face staring at the monitor waiting for me to go play solitaire so he could use his paws to try to hit the cards as they bounced across the screen after I’d win.
He hears the click click click when I play that game and comes running.
Little tough to see when he is like this which he will do even while I am playing the game not just after I win:
I’m a full time caregiver for two kids under four. I work everywhere. Probably the only space I visit that winds up being in any way separate from work for any small given amount of time is the bathroom, but really, even that’s a workspace sometimes, too.
