There are many things that can (and do) go on at the home office that just wouldn't fly in an actual office. For instance, I bet people who work in an office rarely have co-workers hiding under their desks or trying to lick them because they think it's funny. And I bet they never put their boob in someone's mouth at the office. Let me rephrase, in case you work in an office because I don't know what you do, but I hope it doesn't involve putting your boob in someone's mouth. Well, unless you're a wet nurse. Though if you were a wet nurse, I wouldn't imagine you wouldn't work in an office setting. I digress. My point is, many things wouldn't work and I have the proof right here:
Wear pajamas all day. -- "I know there's a dress code, but these Paul Frank flannels pants are so darn comfy."
Stick your boob in someone's mouth. -- "Joan, you look hungry. Are you sure you don't just want to suckle at … That's odd, Joan hasn't talked to me all day."
Stop work to do laundry. -- "Tony, Jeff, Kate, Tom, Leslie, Bill, Joe, Jose, Sara, Amy, Beth, Stacey … anyone have anything that can go in on hot, I'm doing whites?"
Take business calls locked in the bathroom. -- "Excuse me Samantha could you refrain from flushing, I'm on a conference call. Great, thanks."
Constantly shush the people around you. --"Seriously guys, I have an important client on the other line, can you use your inside voices?"
Tell your coworkers they've had too much candy, fried food, caffeine for the day. -- "Sorry, that was the last cup of coffee you can have Bob, you'll be up all night."
Go braless or pantless, or both. -- "Well this is awkward."
Stop work to clean and kiss a coworkers boo boo. -- "Oh Phil you really stubbed that toe hard, huh? Let me kiss it make it better? Phil? Where are you going?
Have the Nickelodeon Channel running in the background. -- "Whoooooooo lives in a pineapple under the sea? Come on, everybody join in?"
Invite other people's kids to your office to occupy your co-workers. -- "Guys you seem kinda restless, so I thought I'd bring in a bunch of seven-year-olds to keep you busy."
Trip over Legos, Barbies, trucks … (unless you work at FAO Schwartz - then it's an occupational hazard)
Find a cat lying on your keyboard. -- "Well, that's weird, this cat was not here this morning."
Negotiate time on your computer with co-workers who would like to use it for Club Penguin. -- "Just 10 more minutes and I need it back. Yes, you can get a Puffle, hurry."
Walk around straightening everyone's desks and offices. -- "Seriously, you keep this place like a pigsty! How many times have I told you to take your dirty glasses to the sink? What are you doing an experiment in here?"
Try to solve issues with the boss, by suggesting a fun make believe game. -- "You seem upset that I botched the deal, I have such a good idea though, let's play Princesses! I'll be the Prince and you be the beautiful stepdaughter who is really a Princess, but doesn't know it because her evil stepmother has kept her locked in the castle. OK?"
Make everyone in the office an afternoon snack. -- "Guys, I think we could all use a little protein and an afternoon pick me up! What say I whip together some crackers with peanut butter, maybe a smoothie, some fruit with a little sugar on top - just a little though."
Well, I guess it's a good thing WAHMs don't work in an office, because it could get pretty weird.
