Working from home should be awesome, right? Well, it would be if it wasn’t for one thing: since I am an independent contractor, I can never get away from my boss-ME.
This month (which happens to be my birthday month) has been really difficult. There has been illness and family visits.
When I work outside the home, if I’m sick, I call in sick and that’s that. Not so when I work from home. I try to call in sick and my boss gives me all kinds of guilt and tries to come up with helpful solutions like, “maybe you could just work from bed.” Ugh!
I just wish my boss would get off my back. I am a grown woman and I realize that I will not get paid if I don’t work. Sometimes, I just need a break!
