Two weeks

Ever since New Year’s, I haven’t been working. This work from home is driving me nuts and everyday I just stared at my computer all day until 5 pm hits then turned off my laptop. I don’t know whether my boss knows (hope not) or not.

if you're getting paid....who cares? As long as there is money in the bank, why worry if you're doing anything or not? Get paid and relax. Wish I could, I been having to go in every day.

I think everyone is more or less like this... It's so strange.

I fought for years to be allowed to work from home because I'm disabled and the commute was killing me. I finally had to give up and go on disability. Now EVERYONE there is working from home.

and bite you in the ass. Hard. Try to give a f*ck about honesty and integrity. Keep your self-respect and quit.

Nice

I have to go in every day despite the fact I can do most of my job from home. Everyday I have to risk catching COVID because there isn’t enough staff to cover what my employer thinks is essential work. Get some perspective, buckle down and get over whatever you’re feeling and DO YOUR JOB. Some of us aren’t as lucky.

Not impressed

I have to admit that I don’t understand why so many adults seem to need constant supervision in order to do their damned job. This is such childish behaviour.

It's almost like long term chronic stress has health impacts. I'd really encourage you to see this as a mental health crisis - sounds like depression - and look into a medical leave and support options. Do you have an EFAP, for example? Wishing you well. Sometimes just giving yourself a bit of time and space will make it possible for you to focus enough to get back to it.

You're giving those of us who fought to work from home for years before this pandemic a bad name. Hope they track your progress and fire you, dude.

You sound pretty bitter. Public servants are working their asses off right now. Look at healthcare. Look at the courts. Look at all of the people processing CERB, EI, etc. We are busting ass! You have no clue.

Also, OP, please try, or else go off on sick leave. They can probably track your lack of work anyway.
