City dwellers work a crazy amount of hours, but while urban bosses are rarely opposed to running their underlings ragged, they are known to let their beleaguered workforce operate from home once in a while. We're not just talking about freelancers (although, yes, about half of your friends will be freelancers at any given time); many clock-punching nine to fivers will be allowed to work from home while their ridiculously wealthy boss chooses to work remotely from the Hamptons for a week.
Of course, for many city dwellers, the office is far more spacious and comfortable than their tiny apartment. But, at least at home you can hang out in your boxer briefs and eat peanut butter directly from the jar. [Author's note: Yes, I am doing that right now. Sorry for the mental image.]
