No doubt about it: a lot of people are hurting right now. A worldwide health crisis has pretty much decimated the American economy and millions of people have been out of work since March.
It’s pretty awful, but we need to have a laugh once in a while to relieve the stress, right?
These funny tweets are all about the funny (and kind of depressing) reality of being unemployed during this crazy time in our country’s history.
Let’s take a look! And give yourself a break if you’re unemployed right now, you’ll get through it and you’ll find something even better than your last job!
1. I’m REALLY unemployed.
Just so you know…
I'm just going to sign up for unemployment at the 3 in the morning when it's less busy and so they know how unemployed I am.

2. You’re all alone…
And getting very lonely.
Unemployed for a month and this is my major takeaway: pic.twitter.com/ZPI78LkeDm

3. I did not know that!
I’m glad I do now, though!
Did you know that if you're unemployed long enough hot dog can become an omelet ingredient?

4. Are you sure about that?
Seems like you might be lying about this…
I don't have time for this, I said while unemployed & eating food in bed

5. Isn’t this great?!?!
Having a blast…or at least trying to.
Being recently unemployed and asking your recently unemployed roommate “aren’t u late for work?” First thing every morning and laughing like doomed goblins

6. That was pretty quick.
Kids, use this as a cautionary tale.
It took one week of being unemployed for my sleep schedule to revert to that of an actual capital C Creature

7. That is very true.
You’re still here?!?!
Nobody tells you how stoked your cat gets about you being unemployed

8. Not the same…
Not the same at all…
The hardest part of being unemployed is that crying in the bathroom at home completely lacks the dramatic flair of crying in the bathroom at work.

9. Darnit, it’s Monday again!
A case of the Mondays…even though you’re not at work.
Leave it to me, an unemployed person, to still complain about it being Monday

10. Get a head start.
I’m just getting prepared…
I'm preparing myself for retirement by being unemployed
— Abby Feldman (@AbbyFeldman) July 11, 2017
11. Time well spent!
You’re doing a great job!
Of course I'm getting a lot done while being unemployed. I just ran some hot water over ice cubes in my sink to watch them melt.

12. This person is doing it the right way.
Pay attention, kids.
Being unemployed is way more fun if you dress up your pets like your coworkers and pretend you have a job where you just cry in your bed.

13. Just like George Costanza…
It could be worse…maybe…
Balding, unemployed, living with my parents; Corona has completed my Costanza transformation.
