What are your home office must haves? I lateraled to a new firm that is giving me a $500 stipend for home office equipment, furniture, supplies, etc. But I can't use the stipend for anything they have already provided me (keyboard, mouse, dock, monitor). I do plan on getting a printer. Any other ideas?
Is it worth driving 1hour+ each way for free childcare twice per week? We are having trouble finding a quality nanny for two days (we have a great nanny on other two days). Rather than continuing to pay big $$$ for inconsistent and unreliable care, it thinking of driving to my dads house to let him take the kids while I work from his home office. May be problematic if Both me and my husband are needed in the office. Do you think it’s a good idea? Will save me $260 per day / $520 per week
If I’m starting on a 100% travel engagement and my parents live an hour away from my home office & they’ve been begging me to move on back home, is it worth keeping an empty in my home city?
When there is a huge line of people (30+) for the deli at your home office, but the lunch lady surprises you with your favorite chipotle chicken wrap already toasted and ready. #winning #goldstatus 😁
Despite getting next to no sleep and feeling constipated, I have finally figured out why I have been so happy all day. Summer dress code in the home office!

Screen sharing with an ultrawide / 4K monitor - what’s everyone’s experience like? In the past I tried to screen share with a 1440p monitor and people would complain my screen was too small so I have a secondary 1080p monitor that use exclusively for screen sharing. I’d love to move to either an ultrawide or just upgrade the 1080p monitor to a 4K one but am worried I’ll have the same issues it appearing small on the other persons end. Anyone have any suggestions?
Whose home office fits one of these categories?
Anyone have a good office chair recommendation? Really not trying to spend more than $150 but willing to go to $200 if there is a really good recommendation. Thanks!
So I need chair recommendations. I have a $40 chair from target and being on it for 14+ hours a day is pretty much killing me. I don’t have space for a standing desk tbh and my flat feet make it hard to stand for longer periods of time. If anyone has good recommendations hopefully under $400, i would highly appreciate it!
I am sure it’s been asked 100 times but humor me please. Best office chair to add to the good I’m doing with a stand up desk? Lol. Would love to stay in a reasonable range if possible (800 max)
Considering getting a FlexiSpot standing desk. Anyone here using one that could share their experience?
So, any NON standing desk recommendations? I don’t really like standing desks. I’d like something that looks decent, that has at least some storage, with a good amount of… square footage, I guess?
If firms go exclusively remote, I have zero reason to remain living near “home office”. Likelihood we’ll shift to that model, and can live wherever?
A President, who received 3 million fewer votes, gets to put another Justice on the bench after being confirmed by a Republican majority who represent 11 million fewer Americans than their counterparts, and 2 of those republicans were not elected by the people, but appointed by Governors. Explain to me again how this is a legitimate hearing?

People always say sue the company or owner. Is it that easy to sue someone? Especially around employment when people are getting laid off due to Covid. I think Deloitte or any big consulting firm it’s not easy to sue them, they are well protected

I was hoping the vaccine would help us get back to more normal, open, and less restricted activities. In some ways it has but since there are so many unvaccinated, is there any other way we’ll be able to move forward from this pandemic? P.S. I’m not trying to start a big argument, I’m genuinely just looking for the light at the end of this tunnel.
I’m done with this contrived stress. I want to run off to Buenos Aires for a few months. I want to sit in a cafe, enjoy a nice cold Quilmes and people watch. I wonder how cheap travel will be to Buenos Aires after Covid. Their economy is f’d right now
