What do you miss the least from pre-lockdown life? I absolutely do not miss wandering around the office looking for a meeting room for a confidential call or if I hadn't managed to book a room in advance. Let's never return to that joyless frustration, hey?

Also, we used to have meetings where half the people were in a room together and the other half had to dial in to the spider phone and attempt to get a word in edgeways. That sort of way of working now really just feels like the absolute dark ages.

I think having to book rooms months in advance to stand a chance, and seeing loads of other confirmed bookings unused is something I really don't miss.

This is such a great point. Same goes for being turfed out of a room by people and losing whatever dynamism the discussion had if it overran by a few minutes

Driving.... a heck of a lot!!! It will be needed but I think we have all proved there are effective alternatives and it isnt sustainable - #GetFossilFuelsDown

Those printed PowerPoint decks that were really badly written docs that had been condensed into bullet points and then pasted into a corporate template: an efficient mechanism to increase ambiguity. Have they gone now everyone's remote? We need a name for them.

Oh yes those. I only wish they had gone. Sadly not. They're just presented in Teams or Zoom rather than printed out. I am on a mission to banish them all.

Broadband at more than snails pace - two of us working from home plus two kids home schooling is seriously stretching 14mg! #nofibreinthesticks

trying to find toilets in unfamiliar buildings. I once was in a Very Secure Place and had to be *escorted* to the loo and back again!

Try being a supplier w/o a security pass and having to be escorted to and from loo every single time you had to go. For months/years. Do NOT miss that.
