You ever heard the term “work-a-day-world?” Probably not. It hasn’t really been uttered since maybe the 1960’s and even then nobody really knew what the heck it meant.
It just sort of captures a feeling. Like days are for work and work is for days but what the combined sum of either of those things is for is beyond us.
It’s a tough thing to make sense of, the working life. But these tweets are sure gonna try.
10. Pants time
It’s less and less of the time every day.
You know you’ve been working from home for too long when you almost leave the house without pants.

9. Good vibes only
Look, I’m certain, but I’m not happy.
Me: I’m going to die at this stupid job
Coworker: You need to be more positive
Me: I’m positive I’m going to die at this stupid job

7. On the spot
Who exactly needs to give who notice here?

6. Life hack
Can’t be late for work if you don’t work anywhere.
Every day can be a vacation day if you just never bother going to work again.

5. The disaster zone
I knew I was important. I knew I was the glue that held this place together.
I just knew it in my heart.
You ever get a lil excited to hear that a job you quit started to get a whole lot worse afterwards?

4. The paradox
We spend all this time hunting for things we don’t actually want to do.
Having a job is cool until you gotta go to work

3. Think fast
Yeah, I’ll pass thanks.
I do not want a fast paced work environment I want to go home

2. The struggle
They’ve have literally decades to work on this software, you’d think they’d have figured this out by now.
tried putting a picture in a word document and caused a power outage in another city

1. 9 to when?
Be brave – be the person who just leaves first.
so many “9-5” jobs are really “9-whenever enough of your coworkers leave that you no longer feel guilty about calling it a day” jobs

Now you should probably stop reading all these tweets and get back to work. But if you don’t, we won’t tell.
What’s the worst job you’ve ever had and why?
