I understand his issue with it, but maybe if you explained the situation to your boss he wouldn't mind you working from home on occasion. Either way, good luck with your presentation, OP.

It's sad that some bosses are still so old school, and I don't see how your working from home once is bad for team building. I don't know what I would do if I couldn't work from home.

Well, maybe if you go in and he sees how less efficient you are then maybe he will be able to understand why for you it's best to work at home.

Maybe just finish what you're doing at home and after that just do everything at work? If your boss asks, just say you finished all of it before you saw the email! He can't really complain about you doing a good job with your work!

Wish I could work from home so I wouldn't have to deal with some of the idiots. I don't see a problem where you work as long as the job gets done. Obviously don't make it an every day thing, but if you stay home every once in a while to rev up your productivity then why not.

Yeah because ignoring your boss is a great idea.... Try and explain it to him by all means but I wouldn't ignore him.

I think OP still wants to complete this PhD... It's a lot easier when your supervisor doesn't hate you. So sorry about your situation OP... Proceed with caution on this one!

Don't feel guilty if your co-workers are idiots, but he probably wants to increase the chemistry between workers by communicating more.

You could try telling him that when you're at the office you're getting paid to accomplish nothing but that may not be in your best interest
