The first thing most people picture when they're dreaming of working remotely is being seated on a tropical beach with a computer on their lap and an umbrella drink by their side. Then came the 2020 COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic, when a lot of us started working from home by necessity during lockdowns across the globe.
And while a home office does have its advantages (like commuting from your bed to the couch), it hasn't exactly been the vacation we all fantasized about. With all the interruptions from our spouses, kids and pets, the technical problems (Houston, we can't freaking hear you!) and the complete loss of perspective, sometimes it feels more like we're living the nightmare than the dream.
And can we talk about our hygiene and wardrobe? It's like if there's no Zooming, there's no grooming! And while that does set you free in some ways, there's also something about getting out of your PJ's and into some real clothes that help you distinguish day from night in a world where home and work seemed to have permanently melded.
Well, people that work from home (wfh), it may sometimes feel like you're alone. But we're all in this together. The best medicine for the madness? A few laughs from a few funny pics. So to give everyone a little chuckle (and hopefully some perspective), we've gathered up some of the funniest and best work-from-home memes that you can relate to.
Of course, you WILL get straight back to work after you take a look at these 36 funny work from home memes, yes? Hahahahaha! Right!

There are No Mental Health Days
Quarantine can make remote workers feel very out of touch, except with your feelings of rage. You are definitely in touch with those feelings.
Your screen time is up 100%, from work straight to Netflix and social media. And yet, your brain synapses don't seem to be working at full capacity.
It turns out that your crazy coworkers actually kept you sane.
No commute. No need to get dressed. No annoying coworkers. And yet, some workdays, you still can't seem to get anything done.
If only those self-talks worked.
Clearly, you think that your lack of productivity is due to your clingy cat. It's just so hard to set boundaries with furballs.
Then there's the valiant attempt at setting boundaries, which might not work, but it is worth a try.
Yes, there are days your cat is more productive than you.
Your Dress Code has Changed Somewhat
Casual Monday: sweat pants. Casual Tuesday: pajamas. Casual Wednesday: ratty t-shirt and underwear. Casual Thursday: Just the underwear. Casual Friday: Commando.
Now there's an idea!
Actually, the only catty bitch that will really know you're wearing the same sweatpants is your real-life cat.
Unless you have a conference call at that hour, which is sheer torture.
If you keep showing up to the meetings, maybe no one will notice your job is irrelevant now.
