I am not talking about working on your laptop in the tub and electrocuting yourself. (Although that sounds like something I would do if I took baths. The electrocuting part. I’d find some idiotic way to do it, mark my words.)
Aside from the obvious perils – like people not understanding that when you are working from home you are WORKING, not watching TV or sleeping… or finding the magnetic pull of the food in your fridge too powerful to resist (guilty) – there is one danger that you might not ever consider…
I took a long, delightful shower last night. It was cold and rainy outside – perfect weather for a steamy shower. I’d gotten off work early, so I had time for a leisurely shower before dinner (giving my Husband some Alone Time with his Playstation (and no, that is NOT a euphemism)). And man did my legs need shaving!
While shaving my legs, I realized something horrifying. It seems I hadn’t showered since Monday morning. And it was FRIDAY EVENING.
Ew. Ew ew ew ewewewewew.
Yeah. When you work from home, it’s super easy for the days to meld seamlessly together. Plus, one of the big benefits of working from home is that you can do it in you pajamas. So… One thing leads to another and you can forgo a shower.
Or THREE, apparently.
