Like it or not, we’re living in a new reality for a while and most of us will be working from home for the foreseeable future.
If you’ve already been doing that for work, you know what to expect.
Well, your whole life is about to change in a lot of different ways.
And these funny tweets really hit home…
1. Pay attention to this.
During social distancing, it’s important to remember good conference call etiquette:
– 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

2. Might want to take your own advice.
World: To have a successful WFH day, start your day with a shower, coffee, go outside, get some exercise. Have a nice morning and treat it like a normal workday.
Me: Wakes up 4 minutes before my first call.

6. Don’t waste my time…

7. She did it!
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.

8. Keep the conversation going…
important questions to ask your pet if you're working from home:
– are you at work?
– are we working together?
– did you forget to wear your pants?
– are we coworkers?
– are you the employee of the month?
– are you my supervisor?
– who hired you?

9. Just let the cats run everything from now on.
Video call tips and tricks for WFH:
-everyone wants to see your cat
-no, seriously, why are you pushing your cat away
-what if we just did a call with your cat

11. Work mode in full effect.
The first time I saw Work Husband I was thrilled to find he was a “I don’t think Laura was done speaking” guy.

12. You’re tabling things now?!?!
Mine said “why don’t we table that and revisit it in a couple days… “Who the fuck is he? We’ve never tabled a damn thing and revisited anything in our entire 36 year marriage!
