Yes! Good comic!

Working at home is being pushed towards the office worker as if it is the new holy grail. I really don understand how more obvious a plan can be a failing idea. How big does the iceberg need to be?

At home I got distractions, a million of them. Next to all the luxurious things like the TV or the open Internet connection and god-knows what I also have to deal with family and friends who think; 'it's ok to leave your work at home since your at home and not at work'.

My cardboard box and workspace at the office limit the amount of distractions from the outside world. Yes, I rather watch a movie at my TV but since I can't at the office I might just as well fight boredom with doing the dang thing I get paid for!

Bottom-line; Office might be boring at times but it's exactly that what makes you do your work. Working from home might not be boring, but it's exactly that what keeps you from doing your work.

Don give me that 'concentration' story that you have to got the right attitude to work at home. Most people ain't got that or not enough. It will give sloppy work, quickly pieced together the last five minutes because your favorite series is about to start.

To quote Dave Barry, humor columnist for the Miami Herald (syndicated to others):

"Working at home is great! You can even work in your underware... or anybody else's."

I work BECAUSE I don't want to be home. Sure, there's a paycheck and benefits. But primarily, it's because the kids aren't here. Heathens...

Working from home is not always productive. Had a partner who thought just because I was at home all day long I could also do the housework at the same time as doing my job.

I'll stick this sweeping brush and sweep the floor while I'm at it.
