If you don’t shower first thing in the morning, you may not shower until bedtime. Or even at all that day.
You eat all the things. Why are we hungrier when we work from home than in an office with other people? Ohh, I know… because other people judging your food intake is off-putting. The dog watching you eat your fourth cup of lemon meringue yogurt means nothing.
If you don’t change out of your pajamas before you leave the bed room in the morning, it’s not gonna happen. (closely related to #1)
Laundry, cleaning the garage and organizing your underwear drawer are all more important than actual work.
The cute office (you spent months decorating) never gets used. Because the couch is more comfortable. And in the living room you feel like you are actually working from home. Your home office feels too… officey.
There are no inside jokes and no one to gossip with.
There’s no office Christmas Party to complain about.
Your only interaction with other people is the Chem Grass guy going door to door to sell product packages. You briefly contemplate asking him in for a glass of sweet tea.
Your wardrobe shrinks in tandem with the months and years spent working from home. By year two, you will be down to sweats and yoga pants. When the time comes to go out amongst the public, actual panic ensues.
You’ll spend days not venturing beyond your own neighborhood or house. And then it’s only because you’ve eaten all the things (see #2).
