It’s Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work day today, April 26, 2007. It’s a great idea, but what if you’re like me, working 100% telecommute, from home?
Me: “Come here, kids, let me show you the home office!”
Kids: “Yes, Dad, we’ve seen it plenty of times. All you do is sit in there in front of the computer.”
I guess this is an aspect about working in an office that I do miss, sometimes.
Web Worker Daily covered this very topic here.
Judi: Thanks for the pointer–yes, that article starts out with a very similar mock dialog–too funny. (No plagiarism here, I hadn’t even seen that article before I posted mine.)
I guess I’m making the trade-off of working close to my family (from home) in exchange for not having an office to take my kids to once a year. I think it’s worth it. :-)
