I do all my programming work in about 2 or 3 hours late at night while there are no distractions and then work on the house or one of my cars. during the day.. Chime in for meetings, answer questions on Slack or comment on a merge request from my phone while people think Im working hard.
I am not kidding. I thought it was me but my colleagues had a meeting where we discussed our work day. Because all of us have gained 2 hours extra in the morning due to not getting dressed up and commuting, we usually log in earlier than usual. Also, wfh allows for breaks at our leisure throughout the day. So we don't have to take a full hour long lunch. What we all realized was that by 2:30 - 3pm we have accomplished everything that was needed for the day. So it is kinda an unspoken rule for us that our work day is over at 3pm. Obviously, if there are any important items that needs taken care of we would be on it. But otherwise, do expect to hear much from us after 2:30.
And I agree with everyone else about gas and lunch money. I haven't filled up my car in over a month.
I think management is going to let us ride the year out. There is no reason to go back into that building.
I damn sure ain't getting on the subway.
One thing I'll miss is the wide open roads. I get every where I need in less time than usual. I still drive to go get food and gas is back to $4.20 a tank, so fuck it. I noticed folks are a lot friendlier with masks on...I hope that continues.
The second wave will come...I'm going to keep trying to stack bread and get prepared.
I tell you what I still work in the markets and I will miss easy days cause everyone is buying all of the food so I get to my sales objective without having to work as many hours. Blew by it the last two months. And of course less traffic, I've been getting so much more done.
