Several people have been asked to work from home during the global health emergency. While the internet is abounding with videos of challenges the employees are facing during work from home, most have cited their pets as the greatest distraction. The cats, in particular, are stubborn, as can be established from the many videos the owners have shared on the internet. “She's been sitting there Mon-Fri 9-5 for years, and now YOU come along?” wrote a Redditor. The comment gained 124 points. “It was never your chair,” wrote the second. “Hostile work environment! Report her to HR ASAP,” joked a third user.
The hashtag #workfromhome has been trending online for some time as people from all over the world unite to flood social media with several such hilarious stories. People are posting videos showing their funny makeshift work desks and are sharing side-splitting clips of their pets joining them as a team on their work set up at home. Twitter users fashioned some of the odd objects like laundry baskets and desks created out of the microwave. They then cited the distractions that come along with it. Users shared videos depicting their vigour early morning as they sit to focus on work at their makeshift work desks, and end up with their stubborn pet coworkers distracting their focus. Most cats can be seen slouching on the laptops and documents.
