We've all had those days at work that are tougher than others — the kind of days that a meme somehow perfectly nails. So we text memes upon memes to our friends, or tag them on social media or ping them on G-chat, only to learn that they're having a similar tough day at work.

These are 20 of those memes that are painfully relatable sometimes. There's a meme for everyone.
