In addition to coming to change hygiene habits and teach us the correct way to wash our hands, the covid-19 pandemic taught us that it is possible to modify the traditional work schedule, which is why some companies began to implement the modality of home officethat incredible option that allowed us to work from home.
However, this type of work does not apply to all companies, since there are jobs that require the presence of employees at the facilities, something so obvious that not everyone has been clear about it, as in the case of this person who applied for a job as a baker, but asked if there was home officea peculiar request that soon went viral for falling into the absurd.
The unusual anecdote was shared on Twitter by Federico, the owner of the Argentine bakery Nova Panes, a company that was founded by a couple of brothers in the midst of a pandemic. According to the man who made the peculiar story go viral, they started with a staff of 20 employees, but due to the high prices of inputs, they had to reduce it to 12.
Faced with the difficult situation, Federico confessed that there came a point where sales dropped, so it occurred to them to start making potato bread, a product that they made in a shed that his father lent them. Within 11 months, this idea became a success in his bakery.
One left the CV in the corduroy and asked if there is a HOME OFFICE day.
Yes, one day a week we leave the flour at your house so you can knead quietly.

After the good acceptance of the public by the bread, which he specified is practically based on making dough rolls and putting cheese on it, they had to hire more staff, since with the employees they had they could not cope with completing the amount of bread that people I was using, so they started looking for people with no experience but who were quick learners.
Before the job application, he received the resume of a person who dared to ask if there was the possibility of carrying out the activity at home, to which he immediately replied no, since his request was absurd and impossible, since it is a job that, because it deals with food, must be done in the company.
The boy was young, he worked in a call center. I told him, after laughing without bad intentions, no. That it was impossible for him to take flour and bring me the bread made.

After the iconic job application of the young man, the bakery owner assured that it did not take long for them to find the right person to fill the position, but that they noticed that there is a great lack of education in the new generations, as well as problems to multiply and calculate the amounts, among other issues.
