Working From Home means Working From Anywhere

Working From Home means Working From Anywhere

During the pandemic, millions of people were able to work from home (WFH), but many of them have since returned to the office. The lucky ones are still able to WFH for at least a few days a week, which gives them great flexibility. This flexibility has allowed some of them to not just WFH, but also WFS (work from Starbucks), WFM (work from a mall), or even WFMT (work from a movie theater).

A woman in Bengaluru was recently spotted holding her laptop open to a team meeting while looking at sandals and slippers displayed in a shoe store. A man named Karthik Bhaskara shared a photo of the woman on X, apparently believing that this was unusual behavior. But it’s often tempting to multitask during a virtual meeting, especially one in which attendance is more important than attention.

If shopping during a meeting seems unusual, what about working inside a movie theater? This also happened recently in Bengaluru. “Went for a movie yesterday and someone was on a laptop throughout the movie,” a woman named Rishika wrote on X, sharing an image of a man with a bright laptop.

It’s quite possible that the man was accompanying his wife to a movie, while completing a work assignment. This is one of the many benefits of WFH. There is nothing better than making your spouse and boss happy at the same time.
