I guess I'm an odd ol' duck. I don't need or even want F2F interaction with humans unless it's on a pool table in my favorite bar and that's not going to happen for a while. I'm "Lovin' the lockdown" and I wish some of the folks both at work and in private would realize that some of us don't actually like the "reindeer games" nor the "motherly advice" they insist on engaging us in to the point of being nauseating and seriously unwanted.
Like the T-Shirt says, "Old men aren't hard of hearing... we're tired of listening". 😀
Now, if I could just get my neighbor to take down the devil's annoyance known as wind chimes.
I'm with you, Jeff. I've missed very little about the office since last March. Having two monitors is one of them, which I am about to rectify.
Sometimes, problems and ideas can be resolved best over a Teams chat, and that works and is sufficient for me.
I sympathise with new starters and junior members of staff though, it must be very difficult for them.
I have a superb pair of active noise cancelling headphones, for those pneumatic-drill-outside-the-window sessions.
