2019 is over, which is fine. It… wasn’t the best. 2020 is here, and we are hopeful, but making the transition into a new year, and into a new decade, is not without its bumps.
Especially when those bumps include the end of the holiday break and going back to work.
No more eating your ass off and lying around watching Netflix. No more going out and meeting up with old friends who are rarely in town. No more resting your phone on your belly while you stare out into the void and try to remember what day it is. No, it’s back to the grind, and nobody is happy about it.
Least of all Twitter.
Folks took to the platform to share their disappointment with the end of the holidays and their struggle to get back into the work routine.
Some steeled themselves for it:
*takes deep breath* Today … today I will be turning on … *gulps* … the laptop. #backtowork

Others struggled to remember what it is they’re even supposed to be doing:

Can anyone still remember what is they actually do?
Or their work password?#backtowork

Or to remember their password:

Or to remember the date:
I’ve already written 2019 in 3 emails and spent the last 20 minutes wondering why my calendar for Monday was so empty. Fab. #backtowork

One enterprising English person made a dispiriting Bingo card out of it:

And then there are those who have no sympathy because they didn’t get a break so STFU!
y’all tweeting bout #backtowork, some of us never left 😈
