Had a stressful day? Co-worker winding you up? Super excited about a promotion?
Whether you love your job, or your patience is running a bit thin, lots of people turn to social media to off load their current thoughts and share their day to day experiences on the job. Though having a heated rant about something that’s put a bee in your bonnet isn’t always the wisest idea, sometime when I’m scrolling through Twitter I come across tweets which I think sum up working life to the tee.
Here are some of the top tweets about office life, co-workers and work in general which really hit the nail on the head (or are just pretty funny)
1) Those awkward co-worker encounters…
The most awkward part of the day is walking towards a coworker down a long hallway. Wave? Shout? Look down? Finger gun wave? #officelife

2) When it takes your full effort to keep up appropriate email etiquette.

5) When someone steals your joke and gets a bigger laugh, action must be taken.
Someone tried stealing one of my jokes at work, but I tackled him before he got to the punchline, called him names & sent everyone an email

6) Office busy bodies…*sigh*
