Can I work from home?

Dear Boss,

Since everything I do is on the computer, I was wondering if I could work from home these last few days prior to baby girl being here. My reasons, from least to most important, are as follows:
  1. I do not own work shoes that fit my feet. 
    • I would rather wear slippers or flip flops. Or better yet, the huge fuzzy flip flop slippers that are on clearance at Target. 
  2. I can not make it the whole commute home from work without having to stop to pee.
    • I am pretty sure my dad thought my mom was talking me through contractions the other day.
  3. I have finally gained enough weight that my work chair no longer holds me. It slowly sinks all the way to the floor. 
    • It's pretty embarrassing. Especially when 300 pound Lewis starts laughing at you.

Should I be that honest? Or should I just make up reasons for working from home that are less embarrassing than the truth?

  1. I make $20 for each 20 minute survey!

    Guess what? This is exactly what major companies are paying me for. They need to know what their average customer needs and wants. So large companies pay millions of dollars per month to the average person. In return, the average person, myself included, answers some questions and gives them their opinion.
