Is your work stressing you out?
There is no easy job. Even if you are your own boss, there are a lot of things that can contribute to your stress and fears.
So, how do you deal with all this stress when you are about to burn out?
Easy. Get online and search for some funny memes!
In this post, we share with you 45 funny memes about dealing with work stress. You can send them to your workmates, or you can save them on your phone and look at them whenever you feel down and worn out.
Let’s check them out!
1. Designated Crying Area
How good would it be if there was a crying station in the office? It could be a healthy solution for anyone who needs to cry off some stress while working.
2. Why am I not rich yet?
Imagine if your stress could be converted into monetary. You’d be a billionaire by now!
3. You should’ve just e-mailed me.
Meetings can be so aggravating, especially when they are unnecessary. For those of us who are visual workers, it’s easier to read than listen.
4. My actual face every morning.
Is this how you look every morning before going to work? We know it’s going to be stressful, but what can you do? You have to get to the grind.
5. Story of my life.
If there’s someone out there who understands your stress, it must be one of your co-workers. They understand what you are going through and are a perfect outlet for your venting.
6. Should I just leave?
Ever looked at the door and thought, “It’s now or never?” We all have those moments. You might think your co-worker is enjoying his work, but deep down, he’s feeling exactly like you are.
7. Yeah, right.
Of course, there are also those co-workers we can’t stand. They can be irritating at times, but you have to keep it professional. Just enjoy this meme then and keep it to yourself.
8. How about I just leave for good?
Here’s another “it’s now or never” moment for those people who are on their way to work and realize how much stress it causes them.
9. Take it from the expert.
We were all bright-eyed and bushy-tailed at one point, but work has a way of wearing you down. Feel happy for the excited new recruit—they still have hope.

Doesn’t this always seem to happen? I don’t know how, but it’s almost like computers can smell our fear and know we are on a schedule.
11. You shouldn’t have done that.
Here’s a gentle reminder that whatever you need to get done, you might as well complete it as soon as you can. Because either way, you still have to do it.
12. I can’t anymore!
Do you ever feel like this when you’re at work? If so, you seriously need a vacation!
13. My life is a mess.
Sometimes, it’s just too much. People expect you to finish a one-month project in one week? What could be more stressful than that!
14. When minutes feel like hours.
When you’ve been working for what seems like forever, but you check the clock and only a minute or two has passed. We all know how that feels—it’s torture.

Is this how you look after a full day at work? Don’t worry—you’re still gorgeous, even if you are super frazzled.
17. Margaritas ain’t enough.
But sometimes the stress is too much to handle. You probably need more than one glass of Margaritas to relax and unwind. What you really need is a plane ticket to the Maldives.

When your friends ask if you are all right and all you can do is say you are fine, it’s a clear indicator that the stress is starting to get to you.

When you are already stressed at work, but then you come home and the stress intensifies. You just wish they could fight like this so you can forget about at least one of them for a few minutes.

If you’ve been feeling like this at work, maybe it’s time to take a break from the stress. How about some coloring? Hopefully you enjoy it more than this cute little girl is.

Cady Heron (played by Lindsay Lohan) realizing that the stress limit does not exist pretty much sums up our existence.
24. TV Shows are my best friends.
When you are stressed, sometimes the only answer is to binge. You just want to go home, turn off your brain, and watch your favorite TV shows.
25. What did I miss?
Weekends are our best friends. They are the only time when we get to release all the stress that has built up during the workweek. Friday can’t come soon enough!

30. I can feel you, Zendaya.
Zendaya knows how you are feeling too! Stress only gets worse the more things you have on your plate.

We laughed so hard when we saw this meme. Imagine Mona Lisa on a Monday morning, stressed and already feeling burned out. It’s a Monday Lisa!
32. Chopping down the hours.
It’s the 40-20-10 rule. No, there’s no such thing as that. We just made it up. But you probably can relate to this on a whole lot of levels. Do you break down the hours, too?
33. Are you for real?
You can’t react like this for real, so you better just save this meme and share it with your co-workers during break time.

Patience is a virtue—just ask Leonardo DiCaprio. Since you can’t really say no to your boss, you might as well start practicing being patient.
35. Roger that!
Some bosses tend to micromanage their employees. If you are one of those people who hates being micromanaged, we bet you can relate to this meme!
