This morning I was sitting in the train, eating a croissant. Then an asteroid hit the other seat and I was was launched upwards. When I landed, I saw that we had not been hit by an asteroid. It was just a land whale that was getting compfortable and oozing over to my seat.
I had choked a little on the last bite of the croissant an coughed, which earned me a look from the land whale. And that gave me a very evil idea how to get rid of it. I suddently felt ill. Very ill. My performance must have been good. In less than 30 seconds the land whale felt the urgent need to get away from me. Surprising how fast such a ball of blubber can run.

I've been working from home for nearly 13 years now and wouldn't trade it for the world. I'm betting this guy's just hiding behind this excuse and in reality he's the type who stops by every cubicle and doesn't start his day until 10.
If you have no discipline whatsoever, then yeah, working from home might not be for you.
