Do you really want to go back to work?
« on: May 12, 2020, 09:10:12 am »
Obviously we need money to live and pay bills but If money were no issue do you really want to go back to work?  I've been on leave but if I had a choice I wouldn't even work.  I don't miss it.

lol I doubt anybody would work if they could just have money magically deposited in to their checking account. Enough to pay their bills and have what ever they wanted.  If I had a billion dollars I would buy property out in the country, as long as I could still have internet access, and be happy going to town once a month for groceries.

This. Like honestly basically just this.

If money were no issue, I would never work for someone else again. I would start my own business and/or volunteer. I don't want to work for millionaires anymore, when I can't even get a cost-of-living increase.  :bad: :(

Yes I would, it's boring at home all the time.

Absolutely not. I have really enjoyed working from home (day job) for the last eight weeks...and probably the next six weeks. My production has been at one hundred and ten percent of expectation and I only need to fill my tank up once every four to five weeks which still feels good even if the gas price is down around one dollar and thirty cents per gallon. I have an extra ninety minutes per week saved from commuting to work three days a week (I am generally allowed to work from home two days a week any way). This extra time has been used to make more money at my night time job. I found another third job which has covered the temporary closing of my regular job quite nicely. My part time job has cut back it's hours so I need to change my schedule a bit but other than that...no, I do not want to go back to work.

No, I don't miss anything dealing with work!  I've enjoyed my time at home but know that it will end eventually. :neutral:

If I was still working and had been off due to COVID-19, I'd probably not want to go back. And if money didn't matter, then I would never want to go back to work. I have plenty I can do to keep myself busy, like handicrafts and gardening, etc., etc., not to mention just the general learning of things I never knew.  :peace: :heart:

Since I have been working from home since the middle of March there is not much change in my routine except a different location but would not mind not having to work everyday but would still want to work part time.  I do miss talking to my co workers about other things than work and right now it is all business when we have a Zoom meeting.

I am working from home, and I like it but I really would not mind it I work at the office say 3 days a week or every other week, as long as my husband goes back, or is home on different days than me, he is really a headache to be around every hour of every day.  He is OCD on cleaning and gets mad when I am not as *bleep* as he is.

I like not have to go to work.  I even like not having to send kids to school.  I like the days my daughter and housemate go to work.  I seem to get more done when they are gone.  The day is less stressful.

I have worked from home for several years and I do enjoy I t.  I work pretty much what ever hours I want to, as long as the work gets done it doesn't matter if it is the middle of the night or day.

I am still working through this situation.  Sometimes more Overtime than I want.
So.....IF I had the money to, I'd get a place by a lake and some woods that was close enough to the kids/grandkids.  I wouldn't go shopping either like you countrygirl except for groceries....

Ah, the dream..........
