And they have their weekly Zoom meetings where the manager in charge of Covid, who’s working exclusively from home, by the way, talk about all of the things they can do to stay safe, including “working from home if you can”, but you can’t because “you’re essential”. Isn’t it weird how the bosses get to stay home but nobody else does?
I noticed a lot of people at my former job (staff and managers alike) wasting a TON of time on non-work related activities: long bathroom breaks, conversations with coworkers in excess of 30 min, 90 min lunches, hours of personal web browsing on phone or work computer. I started to think perhaps everyone was just super chill about the pace of the workday. So I started giving myself some slack.
