Dear rainy Thursday plus working at home for too many days straight,
You’re the worst. Oh, what I wouldn’t give for a place to be at 9am tomorrow.
It’s so nice to be in charge of your own time, until that actually happens and even though there is stuff that has to get done, you are a total pushover of a boss and can’t seem to get your “employee” to be very productive.
“Hey, there’s a ton of work to get done, but you know, take your time. Do it when you’re ready. Why don’t you look around on Spotify for a bit until you find just the right music to suit your mood?”
Why aren’t there places where people all go to get things done? They could all show up at the same time and dress to impress each other, and talk about problems they are running into. There’d be a little teasing and goofing around, but they’d be in an environment dedicated to actually getting things done. Maybe they could even grab lunch together to decompress a little. Grab a 2:30 coffee. The possibilities are endless! At the end of the day, when they know that nothing else is going be accomplished, everybody closes their laptops, gives one of those swift dusting of the hands motions, and says “Alright, that’s it for today. Anybody want to go to happy hour?”
Oh, if only if only if only.
