“Oh, are you trying to work from home” what do you do when your pet “asks” you this very essential question? You give up everything and pet them – just like this Twitter user:

“How do people with pets work productively from home?” They don’t:

When your co-worker demands “equal wage” because they’re doing all the hard work – cuddling and being cute:

The only thing we have to say to people working from home with their pets is:


Are you working with your adorably annoying co-workers too?
