"You are not a beautiful and unique snowflake." That hit home for me. I work
most of my time at home, and I LOVE to work, I admit though, that I work
because it pays for fun things, like hair extensions, CD's, DVD's, and the
mortgage! But, I am a loner, and I LIKE working at home. I always meet my
deadlines. However, I do agree with Andrew because I come in to the office
for my current contract because I am part of the dev. team and I can't be
part of an interactive dev. team while sequestered at home. Oh--in addition,
I meet my deadlines, but I procrastinate like you wouldn't believe. I'm up
until 2AM the day of my deadline!

> Andrew's statement that most people sit around and procrastinate is just
plain a lie.
It isn't a lie. Its human nature.
Telecommuting is great for people who work hard. For the rest of the
- its just another form of avoiding work. Everybody wants to do it, but few
are willing to do what it takes to earn such a perk.
Sure, some people do work very productively at home. But for every one
productive telecommuter there are 10 to 20 bums who play Quake all day.
