That is true, everyone is different. I have even heard of people who have become depressed when they telecommuted because they need the in-person interaction.
I agree Audrey - working from home one "has" to go out for coffee with friends as there is no gossiping around the water fountain. LOL
And that can be lonely!

True, it would be nearly impossible to wait a table from home! Though, there is a "robot" type of technology called the Beam that gives people a telepresence, so who knows what someday will bring!

Traveling whenever is a great perk. I am like you; I don't mix home chores into a workday just because I am at home. It is easy for me to keep on task.

Sorry to disappoint you! Well, for what it's worth, you still made me laugh.

When I talk about this with people, they sometimes say it just isn't the same as being face-to-face. I think face-to-face is nice, but not imperative. My husband telecommutes as well, and email, IM, phones, and video calls go a long way.
