The joys of working from home do NOT include the days when your internet dies and takes your phone down with it, so you have to call the cable company for service but they tell you that they can’t send a tech for two days, so you haul your computer and associated paraphernalia to the library where you discover that the only parking around has to be paid for with coins and you just have cards, so your long-suffering husband drops you off so you can sign up for a library card and access their internet HotSpot while he circles the block, then find that even though the HotSpot connection allows you access to the internet, it doesn’t actually let you connect to your work’s VPN so you can’t do any real work anyway.
Yeah. Days like today.
…webmail and instant messaging are gifts from heaven
…as are my extremely patient and flexible co-workers
…and I now have an extra extra EXTRA long weekend
See you tomorrow from wherever I find myself!
