Ever since he was a little kid, He would always imagine he would be driving the Big Rigs having control of something that huge in his eyes would be so awesome. He would always do the arm thing to get Truckers to blow the air horn, while we were on our way to visit relatives and vacations.

It’s always been a lifelong dream of his to be a Truck Driver when he got out of School and he made that a dream come true.

Yet here it is America, Cities, towns, everywhere, as it grew, the name changed from coronavirus to covid-19. Then the masks, from nylons to gas masks, scarves to n-95’s there are so many options. Yet so many people choose not to wear one, thinking that they cannot breath or it is a hoax.  Podcast show notes available here: https://www.18wheeltalk.com/episode8

18WT 006  On this episode Janet and Patrick with special guest Kyle Heller talk about a blog post that Janet had posted on her website at janetmccue.com  titled 30+ Common Work from Home Problems & How to Fix them. They go on to talk about the polls that Janet put up on various websites and how she got over 500 responses to the polls. She used the data collected from the polls to compile a list and whittled it done to the 30+ most common problems people had working from home. The first on the list they talked about was Social Media and ways to not go down the "social media rabbit hole". If you have one of those jobs that requires you to be on social media set an alarm to take a break from it. If you just can't keep yourself from going down the rabbit hole they suggest to 1) turn off notifications 2) set alarms for your breaks and lunch start/end time and only go on social media at that time. 3) post on your social media that "your at home working and will be available at ??? time, talk to you after ??? time, have a great day."  The next topic talked about was Stress. They asked Kyle how he has handled stress during the CoVid19 pandemic with having to do schooling from home and online. They also go on to explain different ways to relieve some stress. 1) Meditate 2) Exercise 3) Yoga 4) Deep breathing 5) Laughter 6) Light a Candle 7) Count your blessings 8) pet/play with your pets 9) Read a Book 10) Video Games. Kyle also talked about how Janet and him love to watch B rated movies the dumber the better.  They talk about Lack of Workspace like if you use the kitchen table as your workspace try having the kids eat breakfast on TV trays or the coffee table in the living room while your working in the kitchen. You can also make lunch an adventure if you have kids by lying a sheet or blanket on the floor and have a picnic inside this will save time from having to clear the kitchen table your working at off, turn your bill paying desk into a work desk temporarily by storing your bills in a file cabinet or desk draw but don't forget to set yourself a reminder to pay them.   The Boss Thinks I Am Available 24/7 by calling you after hours now that your working from home but has never done it in the past its time to have a phone conversation to set expectations with the boss. They went on to talk about video calls and Kyle said N.S.F.W. (Not Safe For Work) and that he would probably be all business up top and free ballin down below....hahahaha. Then they go on to talk about Forgetting To Take Breaks and giving Patrick a bunch of crap for not taking breaks while he works on this podcast.         They continue to talk about how people working from home have a tendency to forget to take their breaks and lunches and just giving money back to the company. Janet suggested setting an alarm and keeping a schedule to take your breaks and lunches and not give time back to "The Man" and if the boss wants you to work late put in for the overtime.  Janet on how women were Distracted by Chores but Kyle chimed in to say he was not physically distracted by his chores and how if he could afford for someone to do his chores he would pay for it, but just not to Janet because Janet's prices for doing his chores for him was a little to high for him thats why he said afford. Janet said don't get sucked in to doing the chores on your break just because your home. She continues with make a schedule and have everyone chip in and help with the chores.For the full list CLICK HERE! For a PDF download of the list CLICK HERE!
