In the fateful year of 2020, so many of us suddenly found ourselves working from home. And once that started to get a little less mandatory, and calls to get back to the office resumed, a good lot of us kind of looked and each other and said “…why bother?”
After all, if your job can be accomplished sitting at a computer, and you’ve got a computer at your house, why should you have to add 2+ hours to your work day commuting and grooming and such?
For a lot of folks, it seems, wfh is here to stay, and as these tweets illustrate, we’ve got some mixed feelings about that.
10. In the hood

9. Shower power
This is now reserved for special occasions and that’s very liberating.

8. The big difference
Make this whole office building my house and then we’ll talk.
Work from home?

7. Fancy pants
Fancy pants are just any kind of pants.

6. No alarms
And no surprises, please.
8:00 ignore alarm
8:30 ignore alarm
9:00 roll out of bed
9:01 login pretending like you did not just roll out of bed, “hey I’m ready to work!”
9:30 write to do list
10:00 ignore to do list and get back in bed, eating snacks, binging netflix

4. The stages
It do be like that sometimes.
STAGES OF WORKING FROM HOME
– Yay I get to work from home
– It would be nice to talk to people
– I hope that pigeon sits in the window today

3. The hustle
In the lo-cal calzone zone.

Nobody’s gonna know but you, after all.

1. Business and such
Hide that pain, Harold. Hide it deep, deep down.

Now you should probably get back to actually working from home instead of reading these tweets.
What’s your job like? Does it work if you do it from home or not so much?
Tell us in the comments. We won’t tell your boss.
