This story would be the perfect fit for a Dilbert strip. Except it wasn’t funny at all back then.

It wasn’t that long ago when a narrow-minded “manager” stated that nobody could work from home effectively. He tried and he failed.
His inability to work from the comfort of his home was the core of his reasoning for rejecting our requests to work remotely.

I stopped counting how many engineers left because of his stubbornness.

But things are changing now.
