5 Things That Suck About Working From Home

When people with regular office jobs find out that I work from home, they tell me how lucky I am. I can make my own schedule! I can work in my jammies! I have the best life ever! If only they knew…5 things that suck about working from home.


 

Distractions

Most offices don’t give you ready access to an entertainment system, a fully stocked kitchen, an inviting sofa and the outdoors. Friends and neighbours know you’re home and ask you out for lunch, invite you on day trips or talk your ear off with the latest gossip. Dogs bark. Cars honk. Jackhammers jack. Your front doorbell only rings when you are on important conference calls.

 


 

The home office

Work/life balance? Forget about it! It is difficult to get out of work mode when it’s time to relax. Unfinished projects constantly beckon since you are always at liberty to ruminate on them. It is impossible to sleep with a nagging idea in your head that must be explored at 3 a.m. After all, the information and materials you need are right there!


 

The work uniform

Going to the office in your jammies only encourages you to take naps instead of getting your projects done. Plus, forgetting to change out of that coffee-stained “I love my cat” t-shirt before picking up the kids can be a little embarrassing.

 


 

Lack of coworkers

It’s hard to prevent cabin fever when the only person you have to talk to is yourself. Pets can help a bit, as well as a friendly and understanding mailman who doesn’t mind a ten-minute chat each afternoon. Eventually, even that is not enough, however, which is why they invented coffee shops.


 

Keeping a schedule is nearly impossible. When you’re home, something always comes up. A friend needs to be picked up. You have to go to the doctor. A client needs a project done ASAP, after business hours. Life can be unpredictable, and when you mix home life with work life, it is exponentially so.


 

This is not to say that working from home is without its merits. It’s that it’s not the walk in the park everyone thinks it is—although you can go for a walk in the park whenever you darn well please.
