Check out 10 of these hilarious tweets that are sure to make your laugh if you work from home.
1. The learning curve that comes with conference calls.
During social distancing, it’s important to remember good conference call etiquette:— Julieanne Smolinski (@BoobsRadley) March 10, 2020
– awkward silence
– can you hear me
– [weird small talk because someone is 10 min late]
– BEEP BOOP
– strange crunch
– heavy breath
– oops sorry you go ahead
– sorry no, you
– BOOP beep
From connection issues to late co-workers, conference calls can take forever to get going.
2. Looking at the bright side of things.
i like working from home. it’s really nice getting to cry for nine hours a day rather than doing it in 3 minutes bursts in a communal bathroom— jen merritt!!! (@jennifermerr) April 13, 2020
There’s nothing like a good work-from-home cry.
3. Poor Cheryl, she gets blamed for everything.
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.— Molly Tolsky (@mollytolsky) March 16, 2020
Cheryl is the ultimate scapegoat.

The perfect way to subtly say “leave me alone.”
6. This is a little too accurate.
every woman working from home is doing so on a macbook air on the couch, cup of tea. every man is at a 3-monitor setup with the loudest keyboard he could find at best buy.— rob (@OkButStill) March 21, 2020
How did he know?
7. A not-so-unexpected guest.

my cat: oh me too
As this twitter user said, our cats just have zoomies. Get it?
8. A true hero.
the human has been working from home the last couple days. and every so often. they let me participate in the video calls. all the other humans cheer when they see me. i am the only thing holding their company together— Thoughts of Dog® (@dog_feelings) March 10, 2020
I hope the dog’s back doesn’t hurt from carrying the company.
