With Flexiple becoming a remote company, a lot of things have changed in my life. I have to be honest - I am largely an introverted person. So meeting & talking to people is not my preference.
Add to this the crazy commute in the clogged & "potholed" roads of Bangalore, it was quite a dreary experience. But the toughest thing for me each day was to leave my dog, Rocket (he's like my son), at home with a caretaker.
My wife (jokingly 😬) mentions that I have a heart of stone - the point being that it is tough to make me emotional about most things. And then decided that Rocket is the only one capable of it - I have to accept it to be true 😅
So, working remotely, I'm able to spend quality time with Rocket 🐕
He lends a calming influence by:
🐶 Giving cute looks for treats
🤓 Demanding a belly rub
😳 Asking me to sit next to him
Remote work rocks 🤘🏼. I can't go back to an office now!
If you have become fully remote only recently, what has your experience been? Happy or sad?
Here's what our users had to say:
Justin said "So are you selling Rocket? What's the discount? 🤣"
Karthik Sridharan said "Hahaha 😅 Elon's Rockets might be cheaper than mine :). He is a total gem and is not leaving me! 😬"
Shawn Razek said "I would say that having my dog within arms reach at all times is one of the best things! If/When people go back to the office I think pets are going to go into depression! My dog loves the multiple mid-day walks and the random pets throughout the day."
Karthik Sridharan said "I would say that having my dog within arms reach at all times is one of the best things! I can totally imagine! 😍 Other than for general reasons, I really hope for your dog's sake, that your company doesn't go back to an in-office setup!"
Alda Lima said "I'm so happy for Rocket! I think dogs are loving how people are working from home now. Cats not so much, they're mostly like... 'Can y'all just get out of my house for a while?' 😂"
Karthik Sridharan said "Hahaha, I can totally imagine. I was never a cat person, but I am slowly starting to love those weird creatures too 😅"
