This is probably not a popular comment, but here are the reasons I sometimes do not like working from home.

- if I don't get food, the kid starve
- if there's a meeting, the kid decides to play piano
- I have to watch delivered food that needs refrigerated to rot, while I really want to focus on that mudafukin bug
- if misus is not sleeping during the day, there is a 50% chance I smell something burnt in the house

Feel free to add to this list

    So whenever you work not from home, your house gets burned down...

    Ouch. Pretty pricey.

    If your Internet is shit it will affect your work as well

    I find that I can screw around for hours unbothered but the moment I knuckle down to do some work, someone in the house will need something

    I do more exploratory work because nobody is watching. So I have my own development agendas directly competing with the official ones in JIRA. Nobody is going to pop by my desk and ask what I’m doing.

    @TheBeardedOne ok but this is true in the office too

    Looks like it all boils down to not having a separate room for work or an established don't-disturb policy at home.
