Most here preferring working from home will be people with no social life. They don’t enjoy office life because they lack the skillset to interact with fellow human beings.
Hey everyone, we've found the office moron. Removed

I miss the rush hour traffic in the morning and evening and waiting in queues in busy coffee shops No one seems to go anywhere anymore...except to the shops. Seeing people walk or cycle around with no place to go. It's a strange world in strange times.

Homeworking is the perfect solution to combating union activity. Membership has been in decline since the ‘70’s and unions will soon be non-existent.

The rise in productivity heralded by homeworking is because there are no union conveners around the office to tell you not to work too hard.

It depends entirely on your personality and your trade. I for one am happy to avoid sitting in my car 2 hours a day just to get to and from work. I am fresher and work better. I miss the social aspect a bit but overall working from home works for me.

Canary Wharf will be empty soon anyway, because all the financial services companies are jumping ship.

Not bothered what the guy thinks!!!

Personally it will be good to have the flexibility to do what you need/want to do. It may depend on age and home space and some people need more social interaction than others.

Until restrictions are lifted its sit upright at laptop slouch on sofa and go to bed - I guess it’s like an upmarket prison with a private loo!!

A lot of people meet their other halfs at work. Prepare for a lot of inbred people in future because the only members of the other sex many people will meet are family members. Every street will have several Joseph Fritzls. Removed

Try to understand that this story has been created by Canary Wharf and the other property owners.

The story does NOT represent in any way the desires of the majority. (Just the corrupt bankers!)

People are tired of working from home, says the man who stands to loose a lot if all his tennants don't renew - i'm not missing the commute, bit of banter maybe but love working from home
he's more likely to lose tenants. Where do you work, with grammar of that calibre? Removed

To add further i have had 3 companies in the last week talking to me, I asked all about wfh. All 3 mumbled about wfh until covid over, my reply was that it would not interest me then, wfh is what i expect and I will not go back to tramping pointlessly into an air conditioned office with bad coffee, worse tea and no fresh air

4 hours per day commuting on dirty, unreliable, horrendously packed little trains and paying £2k p/a for the privilege; no family time, perpetually tired and stressed; just so I can sit at a desk doing exactly the same thing as I can from my own house.…

Good luck Mr. Dawber - you’re obviously a sad little man who lives only to work.

Is work something we do or somewhere we go…?
