These Funny "Back to Work" Tweets Capture How We All Feel Post-Holidays

It's hard coming #backtowork after the holidays. But these relatable, very funny tweets are the remedy.


If you took any time off over the holidays, you know that coming back to work today was difficult, to say the least. After days—or even weeks—of sleeping in, wrenching yourself out of bed probably took all the willpower you had. And we totally get it if sitting down at your desk again was the last thing you wanted to do this Monday—oops, we mean Thursday. Even if you still don't know what day it is, these funny "back to work" tweets will make you feel seen.

If you had trouble finding the power button on your computer today, you weren't alone.

And we understand if there wasn't enough coffee in the world to keep your eyes open.

Maybe you even got lost on your way to the office, or walked in and thought, "Wait, have the lights in here always been this bright?"

But once your eyes adjusted, you couldn't even remember the password to your computer.

Or how to work it.

Or what you actually do for a living.

You probably felt two conflicting emotions: 1) You had a ton of work to catch up on, and 2) You were completely incapable of doing any of it.

Needless to say, going back to work after the holidays is a bit stressful.

But the good news is, if you're reading this, you made it! Give yourself a round of applause.

And if you're one of the lucky ones who doesn't have to be back in the office until Jan. 6, we have two words for you: Brace yourselves.
