They always say that you need to ‘love what you do’ and you’ll never work a day in your life!
Which sounds lovely, doesn’t it? In principle, of course… because sadly, sometimes ‘doing what you love’ isn’t always practical.
For example, I love sitting on the sofa all day watching The Simpsons and then going out to shops, in the hopes of finding the numerous neighbourhood are cats out in force for me to pet!
But sadly, (VERY sadly!) that’s not going to pay my bills…
So, sometimes, you have to suck it up and do what you need to, for now, just to keep your head above the money grabbing water.
So, enter the 9 to 5…it’s not pretty, it’s not exciting and the air conditioning is always off…welcome to hell!
But thankfully, there is some solace in the 9 to 5 grind and often, this comes in the people you work with…and to reiterate this point, we’ve compiled a list of 20 awesome co-workers who are making the working day that bit more bearable…and we love them for it!
1. These Goofs Who Miniaturized Their Coworker’s Desk
Wow, this is pretty amazing! Look how cute and teeny it is! That must have taken a hell of a lot of work…I guess it must have been an extremely slow work day or something, eh?
2. This Employee Who Brought In The Required Sick Note
Now, this is what I call a SICK NOTE! It actually really annoys when workplaces need sick notes for things so small as the common cold… it’s like ‘do you not trust me!? I’m NOT hungover this time, I promise!’
& As the note rightly says, the Doctors have better things to be doing with their time than writing out bits of paper for a small illness.
3. This Employee Who Made Every Frame For Sale Include A Photo Of Jeff Goldblum
Well, if that doesn’t get them sold, I don’t know what will! I’d love to know how long it took for people to notice…
4. This Coworker In Charge Of The Office Mural
I don’t know about you guys, but this would totally cheer me up on a slow, miserable work day! Give me a front-facing desk please, I don’t want a day to go by where I don’t see this glorious masterpiece!
5. This Worrying Sign
Only three!? Well, those Avocados are pretty lethal, especially when a piece of toast is involved..so, I guess that’s good going for now. Personally, I can’t even stay in the same room as an avacado…they’re sinister as f**k (and disgusting, let’s not forget that!)
6. This World-Travelling Stapler From Floor 4
Oh wow, live your dreams little guy! This is absolute proof that following the rules is a load of cr*p, if you’re a rebel like this guy, then amazing things can happen!
7. This Office Legend
I personally think that this is a wonderful idea! Let’s face it, everyone only usually puts the same ‘stock’ message in cards like this anyway, don’t they!? So why not save some time!? He’s stuffed if he’s ever handed a leaving card though, isn’t he!? Unless he has a stamp for that, too!
8. Shane, Who Works At The Deli
Oh Shane, you old raggamuffin! It looks like there’s never a dull moment with you! & I’m guessing that the next sign will be, Shane: JUST STOP!!!
9. These Chosen Employees
Oh, my word! The resemblance is uncanny! Ladies and gentlemen, behold the chosen ones of the I.T department, Grimsby!
10. These Coworkers Who Found A Solution For Picking A Place To Eat Lunch
Never mind the workplace, I think everyone needs a solution like this in their house! Imagine how easy it would make relationships!? It may even save a marriage! A totally ingenious idea!
11. This Considerate Coworker
Awww, what a lovely thing to do! I can’t imagine that shovelling all that sh*te around is a pleasant experience at the best of times, so you don’t want to be doing it in the p*ssing down rain!
12. This IT Worker Gone On Vacation
To be honest, this is how I feel every time I go on holiday from my job! Bye, suckers! Enjoy your time picking up the slack while I’m sunning myself on the beach with a margarita!
13. This Guy Whose Coworker Told Him His Tire Was Slashed
14. This Historical Marker
15. This Office Who Never Got Around To Taking The Tree Out Of The Box
Now, we can all be lazy at times, granted! But come on!? Enough to just decorate the freakin’ box around it!? Mind you, if I know offices, it was probably left there that long, the employees just thought it would be better to just decorate the box!
16. This Office’s Evacuation Plan
17. This Year’s Cubicle Decoration Contest
Yes, it’s cheating, but hey! It works for me!
18. This Employee Who Just Got His Citizenship
Awwww, this is amazing! I wish you and America many happy dates and a long, awesome future together! Just don’t cheat on her, I’ve heard she’s a fiery one!
19. This Guy Feeling The Struggle Of Working With A Lot Of Women And Their Lunch Bags
