From inappropriate work memes for co-workers to boss memes, enjoy sharing these with your co-workers, managers and employees.
Work Stress and Struggles
Here’s the deal with funny work memes and humor. Making your co-workers laugh is a delicate balance between making their day and getting sent to HR.
Funny Memes About Work
Human Resources does not find work humor funny, well at least most of them don’t. I have to preface this in saying – make sure your co-workers have a sense of humor.
Unfortunately, not everyone is as awesome and thinks work memes are as great as we do. Tread lightly but enjoy sending funny work memes to your co-workers.
The majority of us have to work and while I’d love to say that every one of us loves our job, even the best job has bad days. As a manager, one of my favorite ways to help lighten the mood was to send out funny work memes to my co-workers.
A few times, I even upped the ante and found funny work memes and printed them as a little gift, leaving on my team’s keyboards or posting on their cubicle walls.
If you are a hard-working employee whose company says that they value you but your paycheck says otherwise.
Also, make sure these don’t cross the line with any work policies. I am just here to share some happy not to get anyone in trouble, so use these work memes at your own risk (or just enjoy them for your personally LOL!)
Me at Work Memes
These are the perfect funny work memes about that job you may not love. So what are you REALLY like at work? Here is a collection of funny me at work memes that you just might relate me.
If you aren’t sure if one of these funny work memes is safe to send, consider sending something like one of our motivation monday quotes – better safe than sorry.
My friends and me at work are like “Dear God, make me a bird so I can fly far far far away from here.”
Oh, touch base with you – that’s never a good sign.
Here is to 2023, working remotely is the norm for about half of us that were in the office previously. With working remote comes the beloved and dread video calls.
Whether you use Microsoft Teams or Zoom, you will find these zoom memes highly relatable.

Payroll and Paycheck Memes
Let’s face it. We all go to work for those dollar bills, yo. The paycheck is the star of the show.
This paycheck meme is me as a teenager not having any bills to worry with or any idea how much taxes were taken out. Oh to be young and carefree.

Need that money STAT. Send a text with your Venmo, Cash app or whatever form of payment you accept to get paid.
As illustrated in this hilarious funny pay me meme, sometimes you have to go all Chris Farley to get paid.
Day Off Meme
Sometimes we just need a day off of work to do nothing or catch up on life.

Know your work rights as an employee!

Office Gossip Memes
Tell me more (while telling myself to keep a straight face.) These office gossip memes are just too funny.
Funny, this whole work from home era has changed how office gossip works. No longer is their loud chatter overheard from your cubicle neighbor. Now, office gossip is different.
Work Gossip Meme
When you know something and you have to tell your coworker the latest work gossip.
Gossip, the thread of whispered conversation and conjecture that once flowed through the workplace, has dwindled in our new network of home offices and half-empty headquarters. Detached from many of our work friends, forced to type out most of our thoughts, we’re finding that gossiping feels risky, weird and hard.
Serendipitous run-ins with colleagues from other departments by the coffee machine—Did you hear what happened in sales? Did you know she’s leaving?—have been replaced by formal Zooms with little time for chitchat. Hybrid work schedules mean even when we’re in the office, many others aren’t. Stuck on calls with the same five teammates, sometimes it feels like there’s simply no new information to be had.Wall Street Journal
