Virtual Worker In Need of Place to Work

Posted by gansie on July 8, 2010

Posted in between the two elevators in my apartment building lobby was a note. A note I have been dreading ever since we’ve moved into a virtual, flexible business model.

The memo informed building tenants that on Friday the water will be turned off starting at 9am and lasting for the next 5 hours. AWESOME.

I mostly work at home, in a make-shift desk area about 3 feet from my bed. I have, once so far this summer, worked from the beach. But I have not gone the coffee shop route. I might feel awkward sitting somewhere for so long. Sipping, sipping, sipping on coffee.

So what to do tomorrow? Work from home sans water? Go to the organization’s one free office that we’ve secured for instances like this? Hit up someone else’s wifi?

Any other ideas? Help!

  1. Fill up the tub with extra water and use a bucket to flush the toilet. Set aside extra water for the coffee, drinks, etc. Lay aside hand sanitizer and wipes. Enjoy!

    thanks for the suggestion, roofingbird.

    luckily, my coworker, joyinhome, saved the day. i’m going to meet her for a brainstorming and working session for our new website!

  3. Probably an more engaging way to spend the day!

  8. Its like you read my mind! You appear to know a lot about this, like you wrote the book in
    it or something. I think that you can do with a few pics to drive the message home a little bit,
    but instead of that, this is wonderful blog. An excellent read.

    I will definitely be back.
