30 People Who Proved That Working From Home Isn’t As Glamorous As The Internet Wants You Think

Published 4 years ago

Ah, the joys of working from home: a hot cup of chocolate, your favorite blanket and your dog by your side. Or is it really like that? In a dream, maybe. Turns out that the reality of working from home isn’t as perfect as it may seem in photos you see on Pinterest or Instagram.

After Twitter user Jules Forrest shared a photo of what working from home really looks like, others started posting pictures of their own improvised workstations. And some of them just scream “back pain”. Cozy nook by your living room window with a park view? Think more like cramped makeshift desk inside your kid’s closet or an improvised standing workstation made from an ironing board.

Check out the reality of working from home in the gallery below!

One day, this guy just kind of figured - "I spend most of my time on the internet anyway, why not turn it into a profession?" - and he did! Now he not only gets to browse the latest cat videos and fresh memes every day but also shares them with people all over the world, making sure they stay up to date with everything that's trending on the web. Some things that always pique his interest are old technologies, literature and all sorts of odd vintage goodness. So if you find something that's too bizarre not to share, make sure to hit him up!

Got wisdom to pour?
