After 3 years of WFH, now it’s back in the office 5 days a week. I’m still adjusting. The standing on the packed Skytrains, I hate and go into a trance to tune out all the bodies. The needy coworkers, I just can’t deal with them. They are starved for conversation but I want to run away. My brain is still re-entering society and it’s taking a really long time

never be the same. Traumatizing, isn't it?
I’m not doing it

Once you get a taste of not having to commute daily, it’s really hard to go back. I know that there are some jobs that actually do require employees to be at the workplace daily, but the majority of offices don’t. So for those employers who are stubbornly refusing to acknowledge that, I’m sorry, but you’re going to be losing some good people. You should be paying me more to make it worth it for me. The cost of business clothes, gas or bus fares, lunches, etc, all adds up. Working from home gives me more actual time doing the job and less time getting to and from it. If you’re not willing to be flexible, then I’ll find an employer who is.
