25 Hilarious Memes About Work To Cheer You Up On Monday Morning

Totally relatable.

Have you ever had a day where you feel like you don’t want to be at work, where your coworkers are on your last nerve, and you just want to go back to sleep? Don’t lie. We have all been there.

Sometimes all you need is a little laugh and the day will get much better. Sarcasm is the key to your survival.

According to The American Institute of Stress, the main causes of stress include lack of job security is around 6%, 20% is from juggling work and personal lives, 28% is from people issues and 46% of our daily stress is our workload. So, Americans have confirmed in through many studies and surveys that their stress is without a doubt caused by stress, pressures, and fears about their jobs.

In a recent survey, it has indicated that 42% of people are yelled at and suffer from verbal abuse at the workplace, where 65% of workers surveyed say that their stress from work has caused them major problems. Also, 62% of the workers surveyed indicated that they leave work every day with neck pain, 44% said that their eyes get stressed-out the longer they work, 12% also said that their hands hurt with the same number calling in sick because of the stress their job causes. 34% of the workers surveyed said that they have trouble sleeping, but I bet that’s not really accurate, and half of the surveyed worker population say that they skip lunch because they are trying to keep up with the demands of their job.

Don’t get me wrong, some people thrive on urgent, high-stress situations, where others become overwhelmed.

But sarcasm is actually very good to have at the workplace. Scientific American has researched that sarcasm enhances creativity in the office. This is because the brain has to think harder to understand sarcasm than regular speech. In Scientific American, it states that “To either create or understand sarcasm, tone must overcome the contradiction between the literal and actual meanings of the sarcastic expressions. This process that activates, and is facilitated by, abstraction, which in turn promotes thinking.” Pretty cool, huh?

So, here are some funny memes about work that every worker can relate to at some point in their career. Get a good laugh in today and maybe there will be some memes that you can bring to the office to share …

25 Best ‘Wedding Crashers’ Quotes Of All Time

Rule #1: Never leave a fellow Crasher behind.

For bachelors, going to a wedding is a great place to meet women, all while celebrating the bride and groom. And when you have a lot of single friends, you have many more opportunities to meet the one. On the other hand, there are some men who prefer to just have flings with women they meet at weddings. It’s a refined skill, and not every guy is good at it.

But in 2005, when the movie Wedding Crashers came out, it became sort of a guide for single men trying to have sex with women. Whether it was a bridesmaid, a family member, or another guest, Wedding Crashers gave tons of tips on how to be a womanizer, sneak into weddings, and bring home a babe.

Of course, in the film, not everything goes according to plan.

shayarisms4lovers June18 61 - The 19 Best May The 4th Memes To Share On Facebook If You Love Star Wars Day

The 19 Best May The 4th Memes To Share On Facebook If You Love Star Wars Day

Will you be celebrating?

Happy Star Wars Day! What’s that? You don’t know what Star Wars Day is? Well, then it’s a good thing you’re reading this.

Fans of the movie franchise will know that “May the force be with you” is one of the most famous lines from the movie. And “May the 4th be with you” is a play on that very line. So punny, am I right?

But who actually came up with this popular meme?

A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away… Margaret Thatcher became Prime Minister of the United Kingdom on — wait for it — May 4, 1979. Supposedly (because I wasn’t there to confirm), there was an ad taken out in The London Evening News congratulating Ms. Thatcher on her win: “May the Fourth Be with You, Maggie. Congratulations.”

The original Star Wars film was released in 1977, so it makes sense that it was fresh in everyone’s head as its popularity grew. Though, you probably would be denied a day off if you requested to observe Star Wars Day, as it is considered an unofficial holiday.

According to the official Star Wars website: 

While the idea of May the 4th did not start with Lucasfilm, the film company that created Star Wars has fully embraced the spirit of fandom that makes the day so special. StarWars.com, as well as the official Star Wars social media channels (hashtag #StarWarsDay), help spread the word and showcase fan activity. More and more official partners have offered sales, giveaways, and exclusives, and have hosted parties and other activities to honor the day.

Walt Disney World, who bought out Lucasfilm in 2012, celebrates the day with Star Wars-related festivities and events. In a nod to Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith, fans also came to celebrate May 5th by joining the “dark side” and declaring “Revenge of the Fifth.” And because this is the age of the internet where everything becomes a meme, so too have these phrases.

On May 4th and 5th, social media will be inundated with Star Wars and May the 4th memes. It’s also very likely that there are people who are absolutely sick of them, too!

So to prepare you, we’ve gathered 19 of the best Star Wars memes for you to share and laugh at. Let’s make Star Wars Day fun, guys! Because the …
