"uhhh I have a missed call from you." Well I definitely didn't call you.

my earzz

4. Trying, just for once, to eat your lunch uninterrupted and in peace

stop looking at me. will ya just let me finish one bite

5. Horrible back, butt, and leg aches from sitting for hours on end

6....which can lead to someone catching you awkwardly stretching

nothing to see here

7. The fact that your bladder seems to hold way more liquid than ever before... since you're a prisoner to your desk/phone all day

8. The food delivery guys all seem to arrive at once

16. Being put on hold
