Working in an office is great, no doubt. We mean, what could be better than getting up early to ride through the rush hour to get to a computer and do the same thing you could do in the beautiful and peaceful surroundings of your own home?! Except for the lovely coworkers who try to smuggle in their cat or made a habit out of heating bean stew in the office kitchen, right? Well, in case you’ve successfully pushed away the benefits of working in an office, we’ll remind you with our selection of relatable office Tweets. Enjoy!

#4: Quite a bit of performance pressure for the person coming after
My company does this icebreaker thing where every week a different person sends an email to the whole company talking about their average day, and today’s coworker started his «I wake up each day furious to be laboring under capitalism» and it has caused quite a stir.
