A lot of us have seen changes to our work situations lately. More and more folks are doing their jobs from home, which is kinda nice as long as you’ve got a little space to dedicate to that sort of thing. Not super fun to be creating makeshift desks with your kids running circles around you and throwing play dough at each other or whatever it is that kids do.
Not that all the problems would go away if you were back in the traditional office, of course. No matter what form work takes, there’s always something to contend with.
It’s a strange thing, the world of employment – and nobody expresses that strangeness better than the people of Twitter.
10. Work it
There’s something very special and very weird at play here.
Work friends are so funny bc like do we see each other outside of work? Almost never. But do I know details about your sex life? Do i know your financial situation? Have i seen you in every mood imaginable? Do i know all your deepest darkest secrets? Hell yeah.

8. Give me a break
I don’t run so good as I used to.
Me : Sorry I'm late. I broke down on the way to work.
Boss : Is your car working fine now?
Me : Car?

6. Slap suits
Sir I would PAY you for this privilege.
"Would you slap a co-worker for $25,000?"
Me: "It's not about the money."

3. On the flip side
The grass is always greener.
the only thing worse than being unemployed is being employed

2. The silent treatment
You just stare blankly until you find yourself in bed wondering what just happened.
Work ever kick your ass so bad that you drive the speed limit home with no music playing?

1. The nod
Being an employee isn’t all it’s quacked up to be.

Tweets that good almost make the rat race seem worthwhile. Especially that last one. I’d work with that duck for FREE.
