As someone who has worked from home for 22 years, the COVID-19 period has been a fun time to watch the travails of amateur remote workers.
For my first few years, I had little kids at home. Even though we had pre-school and kindergarten going on, that was only 3.5 hours per day. Can’t tell you how many meetings and interviews I did with Johnny Bravo or Powerpuff Girls roaring in the background.
So, I feel for workers like Dude Dad, but, mostly, I think it’s a riot watching the new work-from-home generation go cross-eyed.
