Except not really, because we are “perfectly capable of working from home.” Which I wouldn’t exactly describe as a true statement, in the strictest sense of the word “true.”

I would say I am somewhat capable of working from home. I mean, there’s the good part:

Good Part:
No commute!

But it’s not all good. Because it’s one thing to get yelled at by a stranger on the telephone when you’re in an office surrounded by supportive coworkers, and quite a different thing to get yelled at by a stranger on the telephone in your own home.

Although calls forwarded to our personal cell phones can’t be recorded, a fun fact I learned a few years back. So there’s that.*

(*Not even kidding, the only thing anyone takes advantage of this for is to skip asking the question ‘Is there anything else I can help you with today?’ We get points deducted from the call if we don’t ask it, but — as anyone who’s ever been awkwardly asked that question on a call can attest — it just doesn’t fit into every conversation. It’s a relief when you can just leave it out. Believe me when I say, they’ll call back if they think of anything else to ask. Or even if they just want to ask the same thing again.)
