I work entirely from my own home, and for the most a part, it is super convenient. I don’t need to worry about snowy roads, keeping gas in my car, or dressing in company attire. I set my very own hours, usually wear sweatpants, and enjoy my favorite music cranked up loud. Despite all of my perks, however, my job is rather stressful. I work on a strict deadline, and I need to dedicate a tremendous amount of time to finishing the necessary objectives. I cannot afford to be interrupted in daytime. Because I work from home, friends and family members often think I’m available to chat or help them out. When I don’t answer phone calls or knocks at the door, they become irritated with me. My husband recently scheduled a HVAC maintenance call for the middle of a weekday. Since he was at his job, the responsibility fell on me to handle the HVAC guy. I was not happy about dealing with this seemingly huge interruption. While I needed to focus on my work, I decided I could sacrifice my lunch to cover the appointment. My hubby assured me the whole job would take less than an hour. Sad to say, the HVAC technician arrived over sixty minutes late, then tracked dirt in my house. It took him forever to inspect, clean and tune my furnace, and then he spent over 30 minutes explaining all of the issues he discovered with the heating unit. He definitely wanted to explain why I needed to upgrade my furnace. I thought I might just let him have my money and let him choose to install whatever he wanted so I could get back to work. By the time the guy finally left my house, I was scared that I might fail to meet my deadline.
