New supervisor

Like a lot of you, I'm sure, I'm working at home now. Rocky is my supervisor and he sits on his taxi next to my "desk" (the kitchen table) and makes sure I don't slack off. Amazingly, he's quiet when I have to do phone interviews (I'm a reporter) and for the most part, the rest of the time. He's just happy to have Mom home all the time and hanging out with him. if he gets bored or hungry, I take him back to his cage for a snack, but mostly he sits here and preens or dozes and is quite content.

When they told us we'd have to work from home, I thought it would be a giant frustration and maybe even impossible to do with a cockatoo in the house. I'm glad I was wrong and in fact, they might have to drag me back to the office kicking and screaming when this is over! I like working at home.

Re: New supervisor

Worked from my home office for the majority of my business life.
I found that I'm far more productive, then when in the office.

FYI: Assure that you are taking breaks where you physically live the house during the day. With luck our Parrots are not great determining length of time. Work at it being around a fairly common leaving and returning times. Just add a morning return and an afternoon leave. Whether shopping, banking, post office or just a walk, plan on being out.

It will help greatly when life changes again.

Re: New supervisor

Some believe the landscape of office work may be changed by this nasty virus. More time at home, lower business overhead. Maybe....

Re: New supervisor

I have to leave the house regularly. A reporter can't do all the work at home. I have to go out and cover things and the Assistant Manager (our dog, Jack) has to have his daily walk, too. I've also instituted a daily workout, which I didn't often have time for when I had to go into the office. Trying not to turn into a bump on a log. LOL

Re: New supervisor

Been bringing one of birds to work with me one at time switching and been working from home as well. Have to still go in to make repairs to keep things going, so been working overtime and been bringing bird in so they still get attention and shockingly my cockatoos been behaved. They sit on playstand, or my shoulder most of the time without bothering me to much and work with them on my shoulder they adapted well shockingly and don't need to keep them in cage while working as they stay right on shoulder without getting into trouble last few days. They don't scream anywhere near as much if at all and been quiet surprisingly as getting plenty of attention. They learned to fly to stand when they have to go poo, or eat and took them 2 days to adapt.

Yet another duty, heaped upon the strong and able small shoulders of the parrots of the world...
*sigh*
Stay strong, little ones.

Re: New supervisor

Rocky's daddy is taking turns with me today entertaining Rocky since, as the only reporter on duty on a Saturday, I have to do it all. Cops, weather, coronavirus update, plus a regular story. Fortunately it's warm enough to sit on the porch (for THEM, I'm glued to my laptop) and Rocky can watch wild birds eat and argue, which he enjoys.
