Don't Take Your Time For Granted

Any day not spent in the office is a day that's perfect to get your super to come by, schedule package deliveries, do 8 Minute Abs workouts in your underwear in between tasks, have work calls out of the uncomfortable earshot in which they probably happen at your actual office. I assume, anyway, that a company that makes you work from home even sporadically is a company where every single other person in your office can hear everything you say at all times, which even if it's normal, is embarrassing.

The point is, while often a shitty (and ultimately unproductive) money-saving ruse, telecommuting has its upsides. Do it right, and you'll never have to come face to face with a colleague (or anyone) again.
