It’s The First Monday Of 2016 And People Just Can’t Deal

The nation’s office workers couldn’t be more excited to be back at work.

This morning, millions of people lucky enough to have had the Christmas break off work have headed in for their first day back in the office – and judging by their tweets, they couldn’t be happier about it.

2. People are jumping out of bed, refreshed after the break.

5. Christmas is SO last year.

6. Everyone’s had time to pick a killer work outfit.

These work clothes have shrunk while I was off for those 10 days eating. I must have a word with the dry cleaners #backtowork

7. And can’t wait for their morning coffee – not that they need it.

Hands up who is needing extra caffeine today? #backtowork

— Russ King (@RussWrites)

Not used to the smell of coffee. Today it smells like cat's pee. #backtowork #hny

— Crumpet (@thnkngmnscrmpt)

9. The day is all planned out.

Okay. So, am dressed, am eating breakfast, but damned if I remember what to do next #backtowork

— Dudley Cruse (@dudleycruse)

10. And we’re raring to go.

Realising the holidays are over and you have to be a responsible adult again. #Monday #backtowork

11. The new commute is working like clockwork.

Tube running slow today because "there are a lot of trains in the area". Of Kings Cross.

A black cab just splashed me within puddle water like an actual first day back to work montage

13. It feels so good to be back in the office, right?

FML: This is how I feel now that I'm #backtowork...

14. We’re ready to get stuff *done*.

Get into the office and someone is already leaving: Me: Had enough? Colleague: Instead of my work laptop I packed placemats. Me: Wow.

— Hollie Bennett (@HollieB)

15. Seriously: We’ve got today all planned out.

It's the first day #backtowork after 10 days off. They should be pleased I even remembered where the office is let alone what I do.

— Simon Caine (@thismademecool)

Genuinely can't remember what my job is. I'm just clicking desktop icons, hoping one of them will jog my memory.

17. We can’t wait to catch up with our colleagues.

When discussing your Christmas holidays, keep the answer brief. #backtowork Pic via @ThePoke

That feeling after having answered the question "how was your Christmas?" for the 389th time before 11am #backtowork

— Dom Graham (@GuitaristDom)

19. And we know what we won’t be doing at work, too.

So warnings in advance: Yellow cards to divorce peak or housing market bollocks Red card for "blue Monday" stuff.

— James Ball (@jamesrbuk)

20. Shame there’s always one person who won’t get into the spirit of things.

First Working day of the year. Lez do this! #backtowork

21. Still, happy 2016 everyone!
