Rural Reflections

I remember advertisements in the back of magazines with offers to work from home. I think this job situation was sort of the dream scenario for many people. I just spent the last three decades NOT working from home. I like being at home and as such always requested longer shifts but fewer of them as I knew there was efficiency in longer, fewer shifts. I also would prefer fewer, but longer work days, as I knew there was a one and half hour investment of my time getting ready for work and about ½ hour returning home. The fewer times I invested my time in preparation and transportation - the more free time I had at the end of the day. Creating longer, fewer shifts was easy on a 24-hour schedule and it worked great for the employee and employer.

It still wasn’t working from home but it was in that genre.
