WFH

I know most of you are familiar with WTF but might not be so with WFH.
WFH is abbreviation for Working From Home.

I've been working from home for almost 7 years now.
It is nice to work from home since you save few hours just in commute time and you also save lots of money since there's no transportation, buying lunch, or even buying new business casual clothes
Best part about WFH is that you have the flexibility to take care of house choirs and kids.
For example, the school will call me if one of my kids get sick so I can go pick them up from the nurse office or yesterday, I had a plumber come by to take a look at my bathtub faucet. All of these flexibility without taking time off from work...

However, can you guess what is the most stressful part of WFH?
Believe it or not, it's when your young kids are home and they are screaming or crying when you are on the phone with your coworkers or your boss. That's why I can so relate to this video that just went viral


It's funny coincident that this video happens to be about South Korea president impeachment...

I guess the reason why this is the most stressful part of WFH is because of the fact that WFH is a special privilege that not all employees receive. Therefore, you must earn the trust and prove that you can work from home just as productive or even more.
When your boss or colleagues hear a baby crying or screaming in the background, you know they will wonder whether you can actually get any work done or not

So it all comes down to worrying about how others will perceive you or you working from home and a fear that you might lose that privilege because of your kids at home...

Luckily for me, I've been doing this for such a long time that it doesn't really bother me as much and my coworkers and colleagues are very understanding.

Emoticons are a great way to visually express how you feel.
However, there are times when unintended content is converted to emoticon because the content happens to have one of the emoticon symbols. That's why it's always good idea to preview your comment before posting and when you see this type of problem, you can indicate NOT to auto convert.
