Your HR team has finally stopped starting every email with ‘As we adjust to this new normal’.

2

Nobody bothered to renew your office lease (if it wasn’t already cancelled).

5

The only ‘fun’ updates you have to share with your team are what TV show you’re currently watching, and that’s okay because it’s the only update they really care about.

6

Nobody bothers pointing out to the CEO that they are talking with their mic off anymore.

7

You’ve stopped ending check-in calls with your manager by saying ‘see you’.

8

No one bats an eyelid when your half-dressed children walk past your laptop during video calls.
