Is the back-to-back meetings because of WFH or is it part of her job anyhow?My work is mainly reading, thinking and writing with occasional meetings. So electronic meetings have been fine (huge data munchers, but fine). I'd be happy to carry on with the new way.
One of my friends has a job that seems to be back to back meetings. She has absolutely hated WFH because she hasn't even been able to get 5 minutes to herself between meetings to walk to a different meeting room, she's just been on the computer all day. She says she hasn't felt so exhausted since her kids were tiny. She can't wait to go back to the old way.
I've had that when calling Booking.com a few times. While currently we 'accept' that and say "it's not a problem" when they do apologise for the noise, I wonder how long it will be for that to become unacceptable again. I often find myself having to repeat what I'm saying as they can't hear me due to background noise.Arggh. Yesterday I had to call B2Bpay as a biller. Finally got through after a queue, answered by the person, next thing I hear a child crying out for mummy, next thing I'm hung up on. Some may use WFH as a reason not to send kids to child care and save money.
