All The Struggles Of Working From Home When It’s Raining

June 1, 2020

It might not always seem like it, but working from home is the type of work my fellow lazys tend to describe as ‘hard’.

Throw in a day filled with that crazy breeze, and those little pitter-patter sounds courtesy the rain hitting the roofs and ground around you, and your day working from home easily goes from a mild category 1 hardness to an alarming 5.

If you’re reading this from the office or are in a little doubt about just how hard working from home can be, we’ve made a whole list to show you that this working from home thing? E no be beans at all:

How you wake up in the morning and try to psych yourself to go to the office i.e the sitting room

Please now, don’t you want salary this month?

Sitting on your bed and contemplating if the query you’ll get from missing work would be so bad

I can bounce back, just small query. What’s there?

When you hear that first sound of thunder and you and your bed start looking at each other like…

Who will win this battle?

Your ginger to work when NEPA does its thing the moment it catches the first sniff of that rain smell in the air

Well, that wasn’t a surprise.

Deciding on a ‘compromise’ and dashing yourself an undeserved hour of sleep on your bed

Self-sabotage is the sweetest kind of sabotage.

Waking up six hours later and scrambling to answer all the work emails

Which kain devil sent me to sleep this sleep?

Trying to get work done, but forgetting yourself and staring out at the rain every two minutes

This battle is no joke.

Last last, congratulating yourself that you don’t have rush hour traffic and rain to deal with

Little blessings
