Here Are Some Memes That Will Help You Make It Through The First Day Back At Work After The Holidays

As fun and relaxing as holiday vacations can be, it eventually has to come to an end and that’s the hardest part. So if you’re struggling on your first day back to work, you’re not alone.

Going from a relaxing, week long holiday vacation to your first day back at work is a huge mood changer.


You might try to play it off and pretend that you’re totally fine, but truth is you feel like this kid:

I feel this kid’s pain.

This long and dreadful day starts with trying to wake up in the morning.

You have to set 9+ alarms because you already know you’re going to be pressing that snooze button come the morning.

And you can’t get any work done without some caffeine in your system.

I had to get an extra shot in my coffee in order to stay awake.

But even with some coffee, you’re just not mentally prepared to be productive and get your work done.

It’s brain fart after brain fart all day long.

The day seems to go by *extra* slow and you keep checking the time, counting down the minutes to go home.

The longest hour is after lunch when you’re at your food coma peak.

But you have to remind yourself that you’ll be okay and it’s a new year, so it’s time to hustle hard and slay away.

Yassss, WERK!

This Article Would Be Better If It Were Written In Colombia Because I’m Funnier When I’m Drunk

The working world is a drag, and unless you taste tequila for a living, chances are you don’t get trashed at work nearly as often as you’d like. But, if you’re down to relocate, I’ve got good news: Oddity Central reports that a couple of students from the University of Uniciencia took on Colombia’s Constitutional Court over labor violations, and now, it’s actually illegal for employers to “fire or discipline their employees for having consumed alcohol or narcotics…”

In Colombia, your boss can’t fire you for showing up drunk or on drugs…

Bad Santa / Sony Pictures

Thanks to some progressive reinterpreting of an article in Colombia’s Labor Code, people are now allowed to go into work under the influence of drugs and alcohol. The court approved of this controversial change by categorizing workers with alcohol dependency and narcotic addictions in the same class as those suffering from occupational illnesses.

As long as your productivity isn’t affected…

If your work performance doesn’t suffer, you’re good to go, because some “substances don’t always hinder how one performs at work.” Like, coffee or PCP.

Of course, not everyone thinks it’s a good idea…

SNL / NBC

All-around buzzkill, Augusto Pérez is the head of a non-profit called Nuevos Rumbos that argues the new law will have “negative consequences” on the workers, themselves because it sets a “dangerous precedent and allows people to do whatever they like without fearing consequences.” It’s worth noting that many other substance abuse prevention organizations agree with him, but they’re squares, so who cares what they think? Let’s tie one on!

But, too bad — it’s the law!

Stranger Things / Netflix

A brief sent to the court specifically covered two articles of labor law violations: The first ensures all workers “equality of opportunity” and the other guarantees “all people are equal before the law and asserts that the state has an obligation to provide special protections for people who, owing to their economic circumstances or physical or mental condition, find themselves in a manifestly weak position.” Justice!

Of course, there are exceptions…

Half Baked / Universal Pictures

Depending what field you’re in, you might not get to party with the rest of us. Cops, airplane pilots, probably heart surgeons — really, anybody whose jobs “involve high risk for the worker, his co-workers, or third parties” — you’re out. You’ll just have to party at home like the unfortunate folks living in less-advanced countries like America.

So, let’s move to Colombia!

Half Baked / Universal Pictures

Then, when some nerd tries to ruin your good time by hassling you to “sober up” or end the party early just because “the sun’s up,” you can laugh right in his dumb face. You’re a plumber, not a weatherman or the president, so who cares that you like to get wet if it makes your day go by a little easier? I been there, brother. I get it. We fought (Dun! Dun!) for our right (Dun! Dun!) to paaaaarty, and we won (in Colombia)!

We Feel Like We’ve Been Hit By A Truck And Set On Fire And These Tweets Capture That Perfectly

We appreciate the long break, but going back to work today is literally killing us.

Some say they have lots of energy and are ready to get back to work.


Rested, refreshed and ready to get back to the daily hustle.

With this newfound energy comes a whole new attitude.


These people think that everyone at work MUST have missed them over break.

They’re ready to walk through those office doors a little something like this:


*hair flip*

On the flipside, there are those of us who are soooo not ready to go back to work.?


The holiday spirit got us.

And we’ll be arriving to the office like:


More like stumbling in.

Just thinking about replying to all those emails has us feeling like we’re drowning.


SOMEONE SEND HELP. ?

Either drowning or exploding in a pit of fire. ?


There’s nothing in between.

Because trying to keep it together during the first day back at work is mentally and physically impossible. ??


Try again tomorrow.

This is what the office looks like rn:


Literally, a scene from “The Walking Dead.” ???
