I don't think I could work in an office unless I could get out into the fresh air several times each day!As a sign writer,I was able to work both outdoors and indoors depending on the job I was doing at the time.This suited me just fine.
For me, this is more a question of would I rather do office work or outdoor work - if I could do office work outdoors on a sunny day, then I would love to but it's hard to see a computer screen properly outside I find..... and obviously my papers and other bits and bobs would be soaked if I was outside in the rain!
If I had any desire to do a job like farming or gardening or forest ranger then the location of my work would be decided for me.
I think I may have the perfect job where I can work a combination of both. I would spend about 3/4 of my time working inside (be it from an office or from home) with 1/4 on location filming. I don't mind the scorching heat but it can be tedious when it rains. Then again, if it's raining, we can't shoot anyway as we would defer to a wet weather contingency and reschedule filming. So for me, its best of both worlds. If I had to get a "normal job" and commit to one or the other, I think I would be hard pressed to be able to decide as I love having the flexibility of working inside and outside.
as a person with an outside job (junk mail deliverer) I'd prefer an inside job. I've only just managed to start my next job round this weekend due to a week of cold weather and rain. Because it's casual work, if I don't do it due to the weather, I don't get paid.
I assume gardeners and other outdoor workers are similarly affected, though I do see the postie braving it through heat and cold.
The last job I was in was outdoors . On the wet days we worked in the shed doing cleaning up , organizing , fixing up things, On the very hot days we chose to work very early , and in the shade as much as possible . Loved my outdoor job as a Gardner.
