Tweets That Show What People Learned About Their Partners While Working From Home

When couples spend more time together than usual, they learn a lot about each other. To paint you an accurate picture of what it looks like, we put together a list of tweets from people who have first-hand experience.

My wife has her home office in the basement and mine is on the top floor of the house, so rather than shouting up and down, we’ve trained Lydia to carry messages between us. The latest just came through: “Wine tonight?” That’ll be a yes! Isn’t she a good girl.

I was on a zoom meeting just now and my husband needed to go behind me so he thoughtfully crawled to stay out of the camera, which means instead of seeing him walk by in his underwear my coworkers saw him crawl by in his underwear.

Pro-tip for couples suddenly working from home together: Get yourselves an imaginary coworker to blame things on. In our apartment, Cheryl keeps leaving her dirty water cups all over the place and we really don't know what to do about her.

Working from home is life's greatest gift.

just kissed my husband intimately on the back of the neck, as I walked past him, while working from home. he started this job on Monday. i thought he was watching a video. he was on a meeting with the CEO

My wife has a Zoom call for work, which means the dog and I have to stay in the bedroom since we don't know how to behave on Zoom calls.

A funny thing about quarantining is hearing your partner in full work mode for the first time. Like, I’m married to a “let’s circle back” guy — who knew?

Hearing my wife in meetings--especially with subordinates--and it dawns on me that she uses personnel management techniques on me all the time.

My husband has been working from home for 6 weeks. I've learned that he basically gets paid to be in meetings. Speak in meetings, meet with other people about their last meeting, and have meetings to plan for the next meeting.

I know we’ve been working from home for a year, but it’s still such a trip to listen in on your partner’s work zooms & hear them say phrases you never usually hear them say like “brand loyalty” and “quantitative research” and “my wife can’t find out about us”

I got to hear my wife discuss fundraising strategies for battling brain diseases, and it was super clear just how "up" I married.

I love working from home when my girlfriend is also working from home. Every now and then I just hear her exclaim “oh hi lil stinky!” from the other side of the house, which means our cat has wandered into her office looking for attention

my wife’s been working at home for more than a year now and has started complaining to me when her wireless connection is slow like I’m the office IT guy, so I made her submit a customer support ticket

Part of my wife working from home means I am now privy to her many Scottish outbursts when dealing with difficult coworkers... She just got off a zoom and goes, “I tell ya, ____ couldn’t organize a piss up in a brewery”...

My partner and I have been working from home since March 2020, and he has finally politely informed me that my typing sounds like "50 hungry woodpeckers trying to eat a keyboard"

I’ve been working from home for five years, my husband has been doing it for two weeks and everyday he wakes up early, showers and gets fully dressed. Will someone please tell him he’s doing it wrong and that he’s supposed to stay in his pajamas all day and hate himself

My partner is laid back and chilled about everything, never has much of an opinion or argument, but apparently at work he's super competent and speaks up and gets things done. It's very disorienting.

My husband teaches online and when he records his lectures, I can’t listen. He swooned his voice and makes dad jokes. So cringy.

My husband is pleasant and PATIENT on the phone. It’s like invasion of the body snatchers. I know him as the guy who can’t sit still at red lights and won’t buy more than three groceries at a time. WTF? Why can’t I have the patient guy?

My wife works from home full-time, but I remember the day I realized she was the "one more question" person at the end of meetings. I was shook.

Working from home really makes me realise how easy my job is compared to parenting. I'm sitting in a quiet room drinking coffee and looking at the internet, overhearing my husband patiently explain why sugar snap peas are not, in fact, "too stinky".
