Work, work, work, work, work, work, is pretty much what your company expects you to do, at least for five days a week. On Mondays, most of us go through the weekend withdrawal syndrome, and by lunch time, we declare that Mondays are what horror stories are made of. As the week progresses and gets closer to Friday, you suddenly see the ray of hope at the end of the tunnel, and you assure yourself that everything is going to be okay. But work doesn’t necessarily have to be that depressing. We bring you 11 sitcoms that prove that office jobs don’t have to be boring as hell because the people you work with, can be a lot more entertaining than you think. Also, you may not be able to learn professional management techniques from them, but you sure will be able to relate to the characters that you see in them.
So, scroll down to find out which workplace sitcoms you need to watch to stay sane at work.
