Comfy pants with a giant hole in the crotch? Don’t mind if I do.
As professional and productive as we are when we work from home, we still handle things a bit differently from our office selves. And some of our nobody-can-see-us choices are pretty hysterical when we stop to think about them. So we did, and we hope these give you a chuckle about your well-deserved work-at-home days.
1. You have two breakfasts because dammit, you’re too close to your kitchen not to.
2. You have separate degrees of makeup routines, known as: In-Person Meeting Face, Skype Face, Daycare Pick-up Face and Never-Seeing-the-Light-of-Day Face

3. You pair a video meeting-worthy top with pajama pants that definitely have a giant hole in the crotch.

6. You get your mail the moment it arrives, as though today, the day you work from home, will be the one time there’s something in there besides bills and catalogs.
Sometimes you even beat your postal carrier to the door slot. Giphy.com
7. Your lunch consists of last night’s leftover chicken, Advent-calendar chocolate and a fun-size bag of fruit snacks.

8. You talk to Alexa just so you can hear your own voice.
And maybe also for the joy in having someone respond to you. Giphy.com
9. You get less mad at your mom for calling you in the middle of the day, but only slightly.

10. Despite it all, nothing beats pooping from the comfort of your own toilet.
