Life is full of awkward situations. But few are more awkward than those involving working in an office.

We’ve allll been there…

1. Finishing a meeting, making awkward small talk and wondering who the hell is going to get up first.

So funny omg.

3. Heading to the kitchen, bumping into a colleague you barely know and having to feign interest in how their day’s going.

That’s nice 🙂
