Here are 13 memes to make your workday a little easier.
1. “Oh, I’m sorry, I must’ve forgotten that horror movie discourse isn’t my job, rather just an interesting and mildly-fulfilling hobby.”
MY BOSS: why haven’t you completed any tasks for a week and a half
ME: did you hear the news? horror movies are about grief and trauma now
