If You Hate Offices This Is For You

October 24, 2018
Having a 9 to 5 is not easy. But for some people, the hardest part about it is just having to show up in the office. If you are one of those people, I’m pretty sure you can relate to these.

When your office has a dress code and you have to wear tie and shoe to work.

When you just want to be naked in bed.

This is you on Monday mornings.

So you mean this weekend is over?

Then you enter the office and that coworker you don’t like is the first person you see.

You just know it’s going to be a bad day.

When it turns out the Monday is actually a public holiday.

The Lord is good all the time and all the time the Lord is good.

Having to make by force small talk with your coworkers during lunch.

You mean your sister’s cousin’s daughter just turned 1? Please tell me more?

Going to the ‘toilet’ ten times a day just so you can get out of the office
.

Sometimes you just stand outside and stare into space.

When your office has an open floor plan so you have zero privacy.

You won’t be able to play your candy crush in peace any small thing you’ll be looking over your shoulder.

When it’s almost 5 but you still have a lot of work to do.

Your enemies want to keep you in the office till 7 but they won’t succeed.

How you start packing up your things once it’s 4:50 pm.

By 5 you’ll already be on your way home.

When your boss tells you to come in on a weekend.

Come in where, please?

When you can’t take it anymore and you lie that you are sick just to get a day off.

“Sorry ma, I can’t make it to work today I’ve been vomiting blood since last night”

When you have an opportunity to leave the office early and your coworkers start asking where you are going to.

You people won’t kill me, please.

When your birthday falls on a work day.

Your coworkers will now start asking you for cake as if they kept cake with you.

What else do you hate about offices?
