One More Time: Most People Don't Like Telecommuting

from the want-to-go-to-the-office dept

This isn't the first time this has been covered, but it seems that people are often surprised at studies like this. Despite high gas prices, plenty of people don't want to telecommute -- even if they have the option of doing so. Believe it or not, plenty of people actually like having a bit of time between work and home that let's them separate the two things. Of course, that doesn't seem like a good reason to ban telecommuting, but to realize that it's just not something everyone wants to do.

    the people that don't like telecommuting are those losers whose sole social network is comprised of coworkers that are equally as pathetic. their social interaction consists of ripping on the cute young marketing chick while they wolf down donuts in the break room. if you take that away from them, they have nothing.

    my GF works from home and wouldn't return to an office setting if you paid her. the difference is, we live in an urban center and she has a wide range of non-work friends and has plenty of human interaction when she is done with work.
