Well, how do you fare compared to the Zeitgeist? Chat up your fellow wooters and let us know how lame this poll was or what obvious choices we missed. For example: Was this poll a) STUPID, b) DUMB, c) POINTLESS or d) ALL OF THE ABOVE?

Working from home has it's disadvantages, like online shopping everyday pitfalls. But I honestly love wearing PJ's for my work clothes.

If I were working, doing so at home would be ideal. I don't have a car, so school -> job -> home travel takes a serious bite out of my study time, and I have disabled family that can't be alone that long.

Plus, no pants!

I don't see why not wearing pants would be a deterrent, especially if you're a woman or live in Scotland.

Meanwhile, what about those of us who prepare stuff at home (e.g. internet research or prepare documents), then go to work? Hmmm? And by "every day," Woot! is neglecting those of us who pile on the work 3-4 days a week so we have more free days? Hmmm?

When rich or powerful people propose a change, it is designed to make them richer or more powerful.

I'm unemployed. Laid off a year and a half ago. Better economy? Where? For who?
Hey can I have one of those temporary road and bridge jobs the Pres keeps talking about? I'd ask about wind and solar jobs but the companies that were given hundreds of millions in taxpayer money went out of business.
Can I get a gov. loan? Ha ha ha, I know the answer to that.
Politicians suck!

I'm a truck driver, so I guess I fall under the heading of my job won't let me. Until they make a really good remote control setup for it.

Would love to work one day from home and if I did would work more hours since no commute or getting ready for work - makeup etc.

I worked from home for years. I loved it. But then I stopped getting a lot done. I did less and less. I got depressed and started to isolate myself. Now I'm truly not allowed to work from home, lol!!

For the past 5 years or so, I've worked for a couple of consulting firms, and I work from my home. One thing I will not do is work in my pajamas. To me, you have to set boundaries, and once I'm in my PJs, it's MY time.
