While working from home and remote work aren’t new, for a lot of people in 2020 it was a big work culture shock. 

Certainly, there has been a continued rise in demand for remote work, but the pandemic forced most organizations to change the way employees work. And fast, which naturally created some tech confusion and plenty of awkward video conferencing moments. 

And although it was a serious and unprecedented time, the world made remote work happen and has become so normalized in our daily lives. 

Fast forward to today and over the last few years, remote workers have found some humor in what it means to be working outside the traditional office. 

And while I’m a remote work fan, I couldn’t resist sharing some humor about what it’s like to work from home. Below I put together some of the more relatable (and funny) working from home memes. Hopefully, some of these will make you chuckle a bit too. 

Types of Work From Home Memes

If you are on this post, then you know how explosive meme culture has become over the years. I mean there is even a card game for memes (which is actually, a lot of fun to play with friends or family). 

Almost any subject is fair game with memes, and remote work is no different. And there are actually a few different categories within WFH memes, all of which will be relatable in different ways. 

  • Work from home distractions memes – Yup, working from home has its own collection of distractions that cause you to lose concentration. Like Netflix, video games, books, your pets, a significant other, browsing the internet for memes, your kids, etc. 
  • Video meeting memes – Although Zoom became the leading video conference tool, there are other platforms to do video meetings and interviews too. But there are countless funny situations and stories you’ve heard about these video chats and meetings. 
  • Losing track of time memes – Who remembers what day of the week it is? Maybe what hours it is? Or you forgot to eat because you got stuck on your computer all day. Yeah, losing track of time when working remotely is all too real. 

The above are just a sample of some remote work memes as there are plenty more categories.
