A great piece of advice came by text from my co-worker Dr. Sarah Ross. She shared it with our department, and it originated somewhere on the inter-web.
Pro-tip for families suddenly working from home together: Get yourselves an imaginary co-worker you can blame for things.
For instance, in my house, Barbara likes to eat crunchy foods in our shared makeshift office space. It is loud and results in crumbs everywhere. We just don’t know what to do about Barbara <shakes head>. The dog is happy, though!
I hope you enjoyed this!
