Would You Want to Work From Home?

Most people I know always say that they would kill to work from home, but if it came down to it, I'm not sure they would, although there are perks to working at home and to working in an office.

If you work from home, you can sit in your bed all day long and never get dressed. You don't have to waste time getting ready and figuring out what you're going to wear because you've got no one to impress. Working from home also means you can eat and go to the bathroom whenever you want, and pretty much manage your own schedule. If you have a dog, you won't need to pay a dog walker, you don't have to worry about making your lunch everyday, and the best part is you wouldn't have to pay for gas, deal with an annoying commute or put up with distracting co-workers.

The down side of working from home is that that you miss out on the fun social aspect of your job. You won't get to interact with anyone, which could in turn leave you feeling people-deprived. You also won't be able to show off your new haircut, or that hot pair of boots you just bought. You'll miss out on feeling like part of a team, and you'll also miss office celebrations, birthdays and happy hours at the local bar. Working at home requires a lot of self discipline, but on the other hand, you may become a workaholic since you're always technically "at work."

So what do you think? If you had the opportunity to work from home, would you take it? Would it be a dream come true or do you prefer going somewhere to work and having a daily routine and constant interaction?
