Speaking

I prefer to work at home because if you work at office it will take you at least 2 hours in commute. Especially after lunch, I can have a snap. If at home, I can spend half hour for lunch and rest half hours you can have nap. Nobody would check but when you are working, you need to use SCABI for communication and sometimes your boss will talk to you and she will find your picture is offline for how many time. If you don’t touch the computer for five minutes, your status will change. You must keep the status online.
