The Coronavirus pandemic has changed our daily lives. If we are lucky enough to be healthy, those of us in nonessential jobs are mostly only leaving our homes to grocery shop and exercise. That can be tough- mentally, physically, emotionally, etc.
While the extremely serious virus is no laughing matter, people around the world have still found ways to come together, whether it’s via virtual exercise classes, singing together on balconies, or through sharing their experiences on Twitter.
We can all use a laugh right now, so take a look at these hilarious tweets that explain what we are all going through right now.
Tweets on working remotely
A funny thing about quarantining is hearing your partner in full work mode for the first time. Like, I’m married to a “let’s circle back” guy — who knew?

Pro-tip for couples suddenly working from home together: Get yourselves an imaginary coworker to blame things on. In our apartment, Cheryl keeps leaving her dirty water cups all over the place and we really don't know what to do about her.

Tweets on stocking up for quarantine
My local Costco is out of Eggo waffles. A man & woman reached for the last box at the same time. Though he was there first by about 2 secs, the woman insisted they should go to her & her children. I KID YOU NOT, the man, who had his 2 teens w/him, replied, "Ma'am, leggo my Eggo."
