Re: Employer insists on working from the office

I agree massively with this - we were doing a week into the office and a week out late last year as things started to open up and I then realised how much I prefer working in the office to working alone at home. Although technically I have everything I need to WFH, the fact that I live away from my family here in the week (they're in UK) and on my own every evening anyway means that also WFH on my own all day gets very lonely. This is exacebated in lockdown as usually the weekly meet-ups with the other ex-pat guys from work for a beer are stopped which usually help break the monotony.

I have mates in the UK who claim that I'm having the life of riley over here away from the stress of family life and 'sitting there getting pissed playing COD and making music' but honestly at times it's felt like living in a nicely furnished prison cell for months on end.

I can't wait to go back into the office regularly.
Personally I think it is very mentally damaging (at least for some people) to work in their living space.

Even as a student, I had a strict separation between work and my personal space.
