Are people really so chatty in offices? I work in one three or four days a week and mostly people Skype, even to say, “Can you stop by my desk?” I love being home — my dog, my kitchen and bathroom. I can start early and take breaks or run errands. If I’m away from my computer there are pings to my phone so I’m not really missing anything. What I hate most is sitting in an office with downtime or nothing to do, so at least I can watch CNN or do laundry.
