Work can be boring, but it doesn’t have to be. Each week, I scour the internet to find the most hilarious and trending work-related gems on the internet. From cats to memes and advice animals, here are the best workplace lulz of the week.

Cats can do whatever they want – but sometimes working your way up to the proverbial ladder can be a tough on your mental health. Make sure you are taking the right steps to ensure that promotion or career path is going to be the best fit for you. Because, well, you aren’t a cat (I’m sorry).
When your boss decides to take all the staff out to a steakhouse lunch on a Friday

Company perks are awesome – especially when those perks involve free food (amiright?). Everything from steak dinners, happy hours, and unlimited PTO can contribute to happy employees and a positive work culture. Steaks + Happy Employees = Happy Company. Right? Right.

When you’re brand new at a job.

It’s your first day at your new job when suddenly, things just … hit the fan. What do you do? Sit around in your cube and make memes, obviously. Don’t worry – it’s not time to panic yet. You can pretty much expect your first few days on the job to be stressful, but you can take some simple steps to make yourself feel better. And less awkward.
When you just got laid off

You just got fired. Congratulations! You get the rest of the week off. To search for a new job, that is. Even if you’re not seriously looking, make sure you brush up on your resume and interviewing skills before you get your first call back.
