When I Tell People I Work from Home

More and more people every day find themselves working a real job from home, but that is still a novel idea for most of the folks around them. Actually, my home office looks like this. And when I tell people I work from home, they assume I am a housewife and have plenty of time to drive them somewhere or volunteer for their community project. Link

The "How my Boss..." pic is almost exactly what my husband's office looks like. We have that desk from Ikea. He works about 40% of the time in there, 10% in bed, and 50% on the couch. Being a stay at home mom with a husband that works from home is freaking awesome. He gets to see his son all day and set his own hours so he really can have the best of both worlds (and yes, he is actually more productive at home than in the office 1.5 hours away). I don't know why all women don't try to marry programmers, haha.

I actually work from home, and it's no different whatsoever than working in the office. My employer logs keystrokes and can see my production for each day. Corporate America would NOT let people work from home if they believed even for a second that they would be losing even 1% of the employees efficiency. To the contrary, most employees become more efficient from home, and the company even saves roughly 30% per employee on overhead. So yes, this graphic is pretty much true, everyone has their own opinion on what working from home is like, and almost everyone is wrong.

The "How I Really Work" almost nails it. Except there's no computer, I'm fully covered by the blankets, and there's a definite snoring sound coming from my vicinity.
