So we are stuck inside. Many of us even have brought our office duties to our domicile. Now I’m not a slob, but when two worlds collide (work and family), there is often collateral damage.
So we overlap. And we spread out. And we try to adjust. But it’s not easy. And if two people are opposites – like in the TV/Movie The Odd Couple – then the chaos is even more disturbing. Now you may think this is only a result of staying at home, but I think this has been going on since people have been getting married. Two worlds collide and collateral damage results.
Speaking of two worlds colliding, working from home is also difficult when the worker (the adult) is challenged by the one enjoying life (the kids). And the adult is often distracted from their duties to some whimsical delights.
