This caller revealed that working from home has been such a success, his company has decided to close their offices - and as the Office Manager, he's being made redundant.
James O'Brien was asking listeners for their take on how they have taken to working from home - is it something they unexpectedly love or are they desperate to get back into the office?
Stuart called in to say the working from home has been such a success for his company, he's lost his job over it.
He told LBC: "I work for a firm in London and we've all been working from home during Covid.
"They're now binning the office altogether, which as I have the job of Office Manager, means I'm becoming unemployed.
"The product they produce is still being produced and they are going to do without the £18,000-a-month cost of having an office in London.
"It's a sickener."
Stuart did admit he was surprised how well working from home had gone and that workers liked not paying for commuting, but obviously that put him in a really tough position.
