Fantasy vs Reality Of A Day In The Office Told In GIFs

Published: 26 Oct 2017

Ah, the working day, sometimes you love it, sometimes you hate it! Which world are you living in today? No matter how much you enjoy what you do, sometimes you just have a bad day because you don't have time, or you're in a rush or because you're the real life version of Bridget Jones and it's simply the norm. We thought we'd illustrate the differences using a few carefully selected GIFs for your entertainment...

The 'reality' GIFs hopefully don't represent your working day (at least not everyday!) They are purely for dramatic effect. If, however, you identify a little too closely, it's definitely time to think about getting a new job. If updating your CV sounds like a mountain to climb, we've got lots of resources to help ease the pain. Going to work should never be too easy because, well, where's the challenge in that? However, it should never be awful, all the time either! Get out of there if it is, and good luck with the job search.
