Proof That Working From Home Caught Everyone By Surprise

 The COVID-19 pandemic has affected every single person on the planet in some way or another. For many, the disease has left an indelible mark both emotionally and physically. Despite that, it has come to be understood as the foundation for our "new normal". A big part of that, especially for working parents and people paying off student loans, is working from home. While many hoped it would only be temporary, it looks like some companies are trying to make the switch more long term, as it has improved productivity. 

Unfortunately, that leaves most people struggling to create makeshift workstations using their limited and usually shared space. In fact, employees with pets and kids have likely spent the last few months buried in a whirlwind of chaos. Just take a look at some of these hilarious workspaces and improvised solutions working professionals have come up with on the fly to earn their monthly keep.
