These social media posts prove the simple joys of telecommuting
Working from home can feel isolating, especially when there’s a global health crisis forcing millions to limit contact with the outside world.
But even in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic, social distancing by working from home doesn’t have to mean insulating yourself from the rest of humanity and losing your rhythm at work (er, as long as the dog doesn’t steal your office chair, that is).
For many, remote work has become an opportunity to get creative with their take on work/life balance – sharing the simple joys of their telecommute with the rest of the Twitterverse.
Here are some of the funniest and most inspiring tweets about #WorkingFromHome to get you through the day:
Crashing the conference call
Day three of wfh is going well. My 6-year-old, wearing a giant inflatable penguin costume, just joined a Zoom conference call with all the other Conde Nast EICs.— Nicholas Thompson (@nxthompson) March 12, 2020
This "working from home" malarkey is exhausting. I've popped my head into so many meetings that dad has dialled into, people are now asking for me and recording my name in the minutes. #CatsOfTwitter #workingfromhome #CatsAgainstCovid pic.twitter.com/fKq2LodbVp— Luke Cool Paws (@luke_paws) March 17, 2020

Surviving the office politics
Saddens me to have to officially report the first #workingfromhome workplace incident.— Prof Richard Johnston (@DrRichJohnston) March 18, 2020
While taking a quick yoga break, the cat attacked my hoody drawstring, causing a deep facial laceration.

My coworker & I just had an important meeting. We brainstormed a list of his inappropriate behaviors from yesterday, discussed cuteness as a mitigating circumstance, made a plan to do better today, failed to reach consensus. #workingfromhome pic.twitter.com/4hMQyrF2c5— Lisa M Fernandes (@fernandes_maine) March 17, 2020
Dressed for success
Day 2 of #WorkingFromHome:— Alicia M Bentley (@AliciaMBentley) March 17, 2020
I had a video call with my new boss today, and I didn't want to look like a slob, but I also didn't want to change out of leggings... So I dressed up the top half & kept the leggings on. We're calling it a "Telework Mullet," and I'm kind of into it. 😎 pic.twitter.com/KUuLPCherR
