Hilarious Twitter Thread Where People Pretend Their Pets Are Workers Just Made Our Day Infinitely Better

Share on Facebook

As the coronavirus pandemic spreads across the globe, more and more people have been forced to go to extreme measures to protect themselves – and this includes self-isolating and working remotely from home.

Working from home has many perks, and spending more time with your pets is definitely one of them.

So Twitter decided to spread the hilarity by asking people to share stories of their new furry “colleagues” and, boy, did they deliver.

Hey – anything to keep our spirits up during a tough time!

Leading by hilarious example.

Lazy and bug-eyed – but cute, nonetheless!

Offering some absolutely hysterical responses.

They’re much more poorly behaved than coworkers.

Don’t answer that.

But ruining it at the last minute.

But an annoying one nonetheless.

But a boss? That is surely the limit.

But don’t distract others while doing it!

Not fair at all.

Time to call HR!

We’re thinking no …

Tut tut …

Except for maybe one with bowel issues …

We’re kind of with them on this one.

Hard to hide irritation while on a web call.

It’s for their own good!

Another HR complaint in the making.

Everyone needs to pull their weight!

Can’t you at least pretent to be competent?

Neither particularly conducive to working.

Glad this isn’t our coworker …

And one who isn’t afraid of a fight!

Nothing worse than being outnumbered.

Not something we want to see.

Bleurgh.

Not in the office!

Indoor voices, please!

Not usually a coworker’s responsibility.

They are pretty hypnotic.

Hey, sometimes we all need to.

Especially if they resort to screaming!

Albeit in a rather cute way …

Making every day an adventure …

Creepy, creepy scenes.

But this really takes the biscuit!

The list of crimes goes on and on.

Though the cuteness makes up for it.

Honestly, we doubt they’re passing too.

They’re as bad as each other!

Try and get out of that one …

Each annoying in their own way.

Although this does sound kinda nice …

We can see how this would be irresistible.

It’s hard to always be cordial.

You can’t pretend you aren’t aware of what’s going on!

Especially since you’re the one who has to untangle them!

Especially with coworkers like these.

It can seem all the workload falls to you.


Although at least they’re loyal.

This coworker is here to encourage you.

Annoying and distracting!

Somehow worse when working from home.

Even worse? No one to report it to!

This is surely a step too far.

Hey, at least they have a preference …

Highly immoral.

Both unproductive, and distracting others!

A multitude of crimes.

A great party trick – but not in the office!

This video is amazing.

Not everything is about you!

You haven’t won the war!

Hard to ignore, though.

But one we’re very much glad we don’t have!
