in je ogen waait de wind
your second family is waiting for you...I still don't want to. I've got fresh air and natural sunlight in my flat (vs. air-con and strip lighting in a basement-level open plan); I can pop out at any time of day, or call a friend and talk shit, or listen to King Tubby while I'm working, or order stuff and know I'll be in to collect it, or go to Zoom Language School mid-afternoon, or go down the park...and all without missing a work deadline. None of which I can do in the office.
Our place is saying they're planning to reopen in October. Think I'm gonna appeal to my company's interests and say, look, the run-up to Xmas is always busy...if I go down with the 'rona, I'll be out of action for weeks, and it might cause chaos and delays...! BUT...if I stay here, in the warm...well, there's a MUCH reduced chance of me getting bat flu, etc etc, zzzz...
Also, I don't know how I'm going to manage the switch back to unnecessarily paying £168 a month just for the privilege of travelling to an office I don't want to be in (and/or getting bat flu off some dick on the tube who wants to sit on my lap and splutter in my face 'cos Covid's a BBC-funded lie by the you-know-whos) without feeling a sudden violent urge to strangle the entire Transport for London management team ( in a joyful, harmless, non-arrestable way, of course!)
(ETA yeah yeah, I know this is a load of self-indulgent pish to a binman, etc. I just wanna stay a shut-in 'til 2021 at least)
