First let me just say this: there’s nothing funny about what’s happening in 2020. But there’s a lot funny about the ridiculous situations we’re finding ourselves in while we try to wait it out.
All over Twitter people are sharing their stories about what it’s like trying to work, learn and socialize from home whilst occasionally braving the toilet-paper-crazed outer world.
This collection of recent coronatastic-fail tweets look at the lighter side of the struggle. Maybe by the end of this we’ll all at least have some good stories?

9. “Vince Adultman, nice to meet you”
Wegmans is limiting people to 2 packs of toilet paper per customer per day and i kid you not someone bought toilet paper then came back in 10 minutes later with a hat and sunglasses on and tried buying some more

2. A common enemy
Pro-tip for couples suddenly working from home together: Get yourselves an imaginary coworker to blame things on. In our apartment, Cheryl keeps leaving her dirty water cups all over the place and we really don't know what to do about her.

1. No excuses
For once I’m not crazy for getting mad when my bf doesn’t text back right away- right now it’s like bit*h you’re not busy! What’re you doing, thinking about making soup?

Honestly, that’s just a tiny taste. Twitter’s kind of a gold mine right now. Go enjoy the jokes now before we all get sick of them. (No pun intended?)
What’s tripped you up about staying at home?
Let us know in the comments. It’s like we got anywhere to be.
