Each day you wake up (after pressing snooze several times), put your game face on, and start cranking out work that’s worthy of those highly-coveted golden stars you earned in grade school. Every day is a new experience: from your Nobel Prize-worthy achievements to the embarrassing slip-ups where you can’t believe you accidentally pressed “send.”
There’s the laughter-filled coffee breaks with your work buddies, the nerve-wracking presentations, the frustrating afternoons where you have to sit through another political debate (what happened to that being an off-limits topic of conversation?), the colleague who never fails to stink up the kitchen with smelly food, and the days where your boss is on a rampage and should be avoided at all costs.
For the days that feel too long or when you’re in need of a little break to refresh your slumping productivity level, we’ve got the perfect treat for you. Here are 16 work-related memes for a little distraction, and entertainment, to refuel your motivation.
#1. When you find a position that 'promises' you'll make half a million dollars in the first month of your new gig...
#2. When your student loan payment is rejected because they claim Monopoly money isn't an acceptable form of cash.
#3. When a new employee starts and you volunteer to show them the ropes.
#4. Ah that glorious first day of work...you were so young and innocent then.
#5. When your boss expects you to be punctual no matter what the circumstances are.
#6. When your coworkers ask you to hang out outside of work.
#7. That one coworker who will not stop pestering you with dumb questions. Not. Today. Karen.
#8. When food inexplicably goes missing from the company refrigerator.
#9. Think we can all sympathize with the all-consuming panic that strikes when your boss walks past your desk.
#10. The struggle of trying to be a financially responsible adult.
#11. Trying to stay positive on the verge of a mental breakdown.
#12. That feeling you get when you finally make it to the weekend.

We all need a little mental refresher throughout the day. Binge on some memes, start spreading the smiles, and get back to being the best employee you can be!
