Mark me as being in the same boat as you. Funny thing is, i've heard of people saying literally they miss being in the office because they "miss the gossip and watching people get called into the offices of higher ups and wondering what they are in trouble for"For me it's the exact opposite!
Seriously some people really just dont have a life, and need politics and gossip to sustain them. In many cases these are the same people who will create meetings for no reason, and find a way to call you at least once a day just to talk because they miss seeing people (or so they claim).
But in any case, I wouldnt be concerned about office space being completely devoid of life.
