Working from home has now become a new normal in the post-pandemic world. Now, a viral letter from an employee’s wife begging the boss to return to duty made netizens laugh out loud, with many saying it was quite relevant.
The letter received more attention when business mogul Harsh Goenka shared it on Twitter, frankly admitting to his followers, “I don’t know how to answer him.”
“Dear Sir. I am the wife of your employee Manoj. This is a humble call to allow him to work from his office now. He is doubly vaccinated and will maintain all Covid protocols,” the letter reads. âIf homework continues for a while, our marriage will definitely not work anymore,â he added.
Adding that the man drinks at least ten cups of coffee a day, the woman complained that her partner sits in different rooms and leaves them messy, while constantly demanding food. âI even saw him fall asleep on work calls. I already have two dependent children â, the woman signed the letter asking for her support to regain her sanity!

Many women commented on the thread, saying they have been in a similar situation for over 18 months now and can totally feel the pain.
However, others came up with hilarious solutions, with many saying they were ready to return to duty for the same reason.
Thank you that the police cannot work from home https://t.co/PaimWr5x2n

Remind him that his cost of living would also have been increased and that family stress would have been the most important.

Harshbhai, I have always complimented you on your sense of humor and I cannot avoid repeating it after reading it. Good lesson to those who WFH even if the wives do not complain in advance!

Dear Madam, We understand your concern, if he wreaks havoc all over the house and drinks endless amounts of coffee at home compared to two cups provided at the office. We would therefore allow him to stay at home. Will pay dues as soon as possibleð

Yes. Totally enjoyable. Since the start of confinement and homework, many working women (especially married) have complained that they cannot do their work at the WFH.
