Working From Home: A Timeline

Working from home seems like the perfect crime. Chilling in your sweatpants AND getting paid like it’s a normal work day? Sign me up. How could this possibly go wrong?

7 a.m.: Your alarm goes off. But that snooze button looks so much more appealing.
7:30 a.m.: Your alarm goes off again, but you just can’t pry your eyes open. You stayed up late working on that thing for your boss. He’ll definitely understand when you call to say you’re working from home today.
8:45 a.m.: Shit. Better actually get out of bed. Maybe just two more minutes.
9 a.m.: There’s no way you can do work without a bowl of cereal first. Nothing says “living in the real world” quite like Lucky Charms.
10:47 a.m.: Three episodes of “The Office” later–probably time to start doing some work. But studying Jim’s prank techniques counts as research, right?
11:12 a.m.: Coffee made? Done. Sitting at your desk? You know it. Better check Facebook really fast to see what those losers at the office are up to.
12:59 p.m.: You’ve successfully stalked every former hottie from high school. Time to crank out those reports. And check Reddit really quick.
3:04 p.m.: Fuck. Fuck. Fuck. Okay, now it’s really time to settle in and put your nose to the grindstone.
4:59 p.m.: One spreadsheet opened, two emails answered, three power naps taken, zero work done.
5:31 pm: You get a text from your office buddies inviting you to happy hour. Screw it, you basically worked all day anyway.
