I know couples who worked together at the same place BEFORE the pandemic hit and that made me question their sanity…
But now that so many people are stuck working from home for reasons beyond their control, I’m questioning their sanity for different reasons.
Because you know these people are really dealing with a lot…and there’s no escape!
Take a look at these tweets about working from home with your special loved one and see if any of them ring true for you.
1. This is serious business here!
You don’t want to screw this one up.
Thing I actually texted my husband this morning:
"Could you please quiet your dog I'm trying to interview the NATO Secretary General"#wfh

2. Can you please keep it down?
You’re driving me insane! I’m calling my lawyer!
How is it going with both me and my husband working from home? He loudly chewed a granola bar next to me while I was trying to concentrate and I almost filed for divorce.

3. That’s one way to look at it.
Parenting is definitely not easy. No doubt about that.
Working from home really makes me realise how easy my job is compared to parenting. I'm sitting in a quiet room drinking coffee and looking at the internet, overhearing my husband patiently explain why sugar snap peas are not, in fact, "too stinky".

4. I’d make her do the same!
You can’t be working for free, right?
my wife’s been working at home for more than a year now and has started complaining to me when her wireless connection is slow like I’m the office IT guy, so I made her submit a customer support ticket

5. You’re learning a lot about each other.
And not all of it is good…
I know we’ve been working from home for a year, but it’s still such a trip to listen in on your partner’s work zooms & hear them say phrases you never usually hear them say like “brand loyalty” and “quantitative research” and “my wife can’t find out about us”

6. Sorry about that…won’t happen again.
But I bet the cat deserved it.
Just loudly shouted at the cat that he was a “motherf***er” just as my husband joined a Zoom meeting with his head of department. Love working from home ?

7. The cat is making the rounds.
Hey, it livens things up a little bit!
I love working from home when my girlfriend is also working from home. Every now and then I just hear her exclaim “oh hi lil stinky!” from the other side of the house, which means our cat has wandered into her office looking for attention

8. That’s some funny stuff!
Well, maybe it really isn’t…
Working from home means I hear my programmer boyfriend's indecipherable conversations with colleagues all day. This morning, he has been laughing about "node modules". Like, full on, belly laughing. ?♀️

9. This is gonna be a bestseller.
And it might get turned into a movie!
I'll be* releasing a memoir of my time working from home with my husband.
It's called "Where Are You Going and Will You Bring Back Cheese?"
*No, I won't be.

10. Keep it down in there!
It’s enough to drive a person nuts.
Working from home today and I can hear my husband chewing gum from his office from 1400 feet away.

11. They really need to get with the program.
I mean, what’s more important, their jobs or your singing?
So apparently everyone on my husband's Zoom work call finds my singing distracting.

12. This is going really well.
You got a good set-up!
Me: Working from home is hell.
Wife: [flashes me as she walks by]
Me: Working from home is life's greatest gift.
