We all dreamed of working from home. In theory, it sounds amazing. Your cubicle mate, Linda, isn't talking your ear off every day (how does she never get that headphones mean no talking?). You're not doing an hour commute to your office every day. You're drinking your own coffee and not that awful, cheap brand your boss insists on using. You can stay in bed while you work. You can stay in pajamas (or, heck, you can even be naked!). And your only coworker is your dog.

But it doesn't take long to get a little stir crazy when you have to work at home. Suddenly, even being in the office sounds good. You even miss Linda! You'll talk to anyone at this point! You're not alone. While we're all stuck avoiding the office thanks to the COVID-19 pandemic, here's hoping a few of these work from home jokes will put a smile on your face and remind you that we're all in this together.
