In the middle of April, I started working from home.
Many of my co-workers began to work from home as well.
At the end of April, the company mandated that everyone work from home due to the Coronavirus. I was working from home 5 days a week and I was not having any problems getting all of my jobs completed. In fact, it seems like productivity levels have not gone down much since everyone started to work from home. That’s one big reason why I was so surprised when our employer emailed everyone about reopening the building. Everyone was going to be required to return to work on the first day of September and that included me. I was unhappy about returning to the work building due to the high positive coronavirus case numbers still. I decided to buy an air purifier to put on my desk. I hoped the air purifier would help keep me safe. I ordered the air purifier online and I was very disappointed when I received the product in my home. The air purifier was much smaller than I anticipated. When I got the tape measure out, I realized that the air purifier was half the size of the online measurements. I immediately called the company to complain. They refunded my money, but only after I spent 60 minutes on the phone waiting to talk to a customer service representative. The company made me pay the shipping fees to send the item back to the warehouse and they would not refund all of my money until they had the air purifier back on the shelf.
