Comedy sketch in Belgium hilariously demonstrates why adults are reluctant to return to work.

Many people find it difficult to return to an office environment after working remotely for over a year.

Remote working was great in terms of being able to live in sweatpants and not having to spoon strangers on packed trains during rush hour, but it has meant we’ve maybe gotten a little too comfortable in our introverted dens.

Belgian comedy current events show De Ideale Wereld captured it perfectly with a funny sketch in which children encourage their parents to return to work.

A young girl leads her father to his office in the video.

“I don’t want to go,”He protests in a childish tone.

His daughter tried to encourage him and said “c’mon, you’ll see your friends again”Her father shakes his head as she lists names. He then reluctantly leads his child to the office door, and she excitedly points out Steve, an accounting friend.

His boss, a great teacher, encourages him inside by saying: “We’re going to have fun today. We’re going to draw spreadsheets, have meetings about quarterly results.”The boss leads him back to the office and takes his hand. He begins to weep as his daughter walks away.

“Hey, she’ll be back later,”His boss comforts him.

A row of children greet their parents when it is time for pickup. He clearly seemed to have enjoyed his first day at work and told his daughter. “supercool”And boasting about how he was able to take notes in meetings.

Steve from accounting didn’t have such a good day however, as he had a “little accident”.

When he returns home, his daughter promises that he will have spaghetti and that he will watch the news as it happens.

Reddit users loved the video, and they shared it.

One of the most common comments included the comment about the spaghetti dinner and the news on the TV. “Holy s*** my sides.”

Another user said it reminds them of a joke about a child’s first day at school. When the kid realised they would have to stay in school until they’re 18, the child said: “Dad, you will remember to come and get me when I’m 18, won’t you?”

Another comment is: “Hilarious. Would have been more accurate though if he came storming out at the end screaming ‘I’m never going back there again, you can’t make me!’”

According to an Ipsos 2021 survey World Economic ForumA third of workers would be open to finding a new job if there was an opportunity. “forced”To return to work full-time.

The survey revealed that the majority of people want to work at home for 2 1/2 days per week. Respondents from Belgium only wanted to work remotely on average 1.9 days per week.

In fact, 41% of Belgium-based professionals who were surveyed said that they would prefer not to work from home after the pandemic ends and restrictions are lifted.

Whether or not we’ll ever be back in offices full-time, we’re certain most remote workers would feel comforted if a little pint-sized person held their hand on their first day back, too.
