Working in an office can be many things: boring, infuriating, soulless, etc.
But at least people are able to see a lot of humor in it and then they share those funny thoughts with the rest of us on social media.
So pretend like you’re working and take a few minutes to enjoy these tweets about the realities of office life.
1. Sounds great!
How to be a grown up at work:
Replace "Fuck you" with "Ok, great"

2. Sorry I exist…
Every work email I send:
Sorry to bug you!
Was just wondering
(If it’s not too much trouble)
Would it be possible to do thing you said you’d do?
Totally fine if not!
Prob my fault anyway I’m an idiot 🙂
Sorry to bother you!
Sorry I exist!
Just let me know!

6. Sorry about that…
imagine having the confidence to walk into an office kitchen and not immediately say "sorry"

7. Don’t mess with Greg.
“I’ve CC’d in my boss”
– mildly threatening
“You wanna say that in front of Greg?”
– threat level 9000
– who is Greg and what is he capable of

8. Can’t you tell I’m very busy?
90% of my job is squinting at my monitor when somebody walks by so it looks like I'm concentrating on some work.

I wonder how many consecutive Mondays Todd will respond "not long enough" in regards to how his weekend was. We're at 7.

Is there a way I can filter out all work emails except the ones telling me there are donuts or cake in the office?
