Yesterday my head exploded with a thousand sneezes. I assumed a high pollen count was to blame.
This morning my throat objected to any attempt at swallowing. The pollen is clearly innocent.
I'm pretty sure I've only got a cold, but it was lovely to have a cast iron reason for working from home: no-one wants a sniffling sneezer around these days.
Do you think we're on the threshold of a major change in workplaces? If a virus can spread so quickly through an office, it seems prudent to encourage home-working. I know I find working from home to be much more productive than working in a noisy office. Now I have another reason: in doing so I help mitigate the risk of business discontinuity.
Time to try convincing my employer I should work from home all the time?
