Some years back I had to drive 3 hours to a client site, once a month. Three hours down and back, and 6 hours on site -- made for a 12 hour day. Surprising, that commute I didn't mind, but 99% of the drive was rural/light urban, so I didn't have to be on guard constantly for idiots suddenly changing lanes, traffic coming to a quick halt, etc. The conditions of the commute make a difference.

I, too, long believed in a typical office environment, especially when working with a team. However, the current WFH situation has proved we can adapt. Oddly enough, even for a bunch of introverts, we get group conversations going on MS Teams and chat about miscellaneous stuff.

Maybe we're not quite as introverted as we all think?

During my 30+ years in the IT industry I've experienced several environment changes, and I agree this is another one. I have hopes that the end result will prove positive, even if the circumstances of the change are not.
