When millions of employees moved to remote work in 2020, it brought a surge of working from home memes that reflected the struggle to adjust to a new and, at times, wildly weird, 'remote reality'.

While things are changing, and the experience of the quarantine may fade (we hope for it wholeheartedly), memes are forever, especially in the view of the latest studies that prove humor to be a factor for rebuilding trust .

Here are your top 10 working from home memes to get you throughout those days.  

I Look Perfect Anyway, or WFH Wear

WFH wear became classic even before office exodus, and 'Pants? No, thanks' memes were circling around lots.

But good old days when freelancers were trendsetters of this dubious fashion are gone. 'Work from homers' elevated it to a level of 'casual Friday, every day', and making a call with a boss while wearing a robe is just one of many examples .

The meme went viral and got so popular that it brought another series of memes after Margaret E. Artwood's tweet "I on the other hand am a cat. I just can’t get this human filter off".

While On Mute Multitasker

The blurred boundaries made blending work and home  so intense that we started to question the definition of the “normal”.

A half-assed effort to focus on many domains at once can backfire, and it certainly did for those who did not master the art of mute on those endless virtual meetings. Well, you can make them more tolerable with a cup of coffee!☕After all, time before the first cup of coffee does not count anyway.

Everybody Knows Your Friends (because probably they are theirs too)

When you catch yourself thinking 'What would Chandler say in this case?', it is probably the time to admit that binge-watching Friends non stop for a week was not a good idea.

But on the other hand, who could refuse a pleasure to dive in living an exciting life and get 10 seasons of happiness delivered with a guarantee?
