Do you know what kind of a person your partner is at work? Is he or she the chatty Kathy, or the one-more-question Micheal? Well, now you can easily find out since both of you are together at home – WORKING. Since we are all working from home at the moment, couples are surely unveiling new secrets about their spouses or partners as workmates. Reading these stories will make you think that working from home with your partner is a different ball game altogether. Well, at least this way we can say that there is a new and different side to your partner to explore, right?
Couples Reveal What They’ve Learned About Their Partners While Working From Home
1Who knew, really?
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?

2Who is this new person?
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.
— Steven Lancaster (@SLLancaster) March 19, 2020
3Maybe planning to revisit this marriage?
Mine said “why don’t we table that and revisit it in a couple days… “Who the fuck is he? We’ve never tabled a damn thing and revisited anything in our entire 36 year marriage!
— Ann Smith (@HautAnnie) March 19, 2020
4He had patience all along?
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?

5Yikes! Don’t we all know a ‘just to clarify’?
I’m married to “just to clarify”

6Are we though? On the same page?
also this, 100 times, "just so we're on the same page"
— Alexandra Rosas (@GDRPempress) March 20, 2020
7Keeping professional and personal lives separate? Even in the same house?
My husband has a work voice! I can always tell when he’s on a work call because his voice is louder and deeper.
Also he takes most of his calls in our master closet like he’s some sort of home podcaster looking for silence.

8*In Chandler’s voice* – what did I marry into?

9Curate space? Do people say that?
I was once in a meeting with a corporate bro who said “let me take a moment to curate the space” (he meant supply context for the meeting) and now I’m wondering if his spouse has already decided on divorce or giving it a few more days

10The only solution now
If he says he’s “out of pocket” you might want to just inject him with the ‘rona
— Imani Gandy ☄️?? (@AngryBlackLady) March 19, 2020
11Aw, we always want an ‘I don’t think Laura was done speaking’ guy
The first time I saw Work Husband I was thrilled to find he was a “I don’t think Laura was done speaking” guy.
— Leslie J. Anderson (@inkhat) March 20, 2020
My husband used the word “mollycoddled” on a call the other day. I have no words.
— Michelle Dittmer (@michelledposh) April 2, 2020
13New ventures to explore in the bedroom?
My man says “noted” when he really wants to say “go fuck yourself, we are not doing that.” I find his restraint kinda sexy.
— Dana4Donuts (@Dana4Donuts) March 20, 2020
14A civilised work ego
My husband is a snark connoisseur who’s never met a dick joke he didn’t laugh at, so hearing him go full therapist (his actual job) was like discovering the pod person who’s been living inside him all these years. pic.twitter.com/sPD26UkL43

15Well, thanks for the review
I hung up on a call the other day and wife – from her lounge spot on the sofa – said, “That’s some boring shit you talk about.”
— Don Bobo (@DonBoboIII) March 21, 2020
Mine is the "stupid office joke" guy. Please stop. Do they not realise it hurts and nobody thinks they are funny? Honestly… I'm embarrassed for him.
— Covid19 Rapunzel (@Covid19Rapunzel) March 21, 2020
17Raise your hand if you know a ‘per my previous comments about this’ condescending prick
Mine is a ‘per my previous comments about this’ condescending prick and I love it.
— Mariam Ketner (@MariamKetner) March 28, 2020
I once heard my other half tell his new client that he looked forward to 'finding some synergy'. I think I'd have preferred it if he'd had an affair with her.
— Jo Watson CMgr MCMI (@agoodwriteup) April 5, 2020
19Who does that?
I’m living with a “This is [states his name]” when answering phone calls type of guy. The cringe factor is real.
— Kayos Bayos. ? (@karinaaaajay) April 1, 2020
20How drunk would you get?
I’m starting a drinking game for how many times my husband says “quite frankly”
— Jodie (@JodieBuckler) April 2, 2020
My husband has learned I am the “let’s make sure that this is brand-aligned” person and is mildly horrified
— Victoria Barbieri (@barbieinmtl) March 19, 2020
22Well, lucky you
Told my husband at lunch: I have a hard stop at 11:55 because I have to jump on a call. The look I got was amazing. I asked "does no one at your job say that?" He replied no, i dont work with douchebags.

23New discoveries here
having an artist spouse working from home is crazy, like damn bitch you really do draw all day

24Looks like WFH is going quite well
Day one of working from home with my husband is going well: pic.twitter.com/60uNVHGh7F

25Well, someone has to take the blame
As my husband and I adjust to working from home in the same home, we realize that we need a third coworker around the house to blame when there are poor office habits. Just being proactive! Meet Delores Rasmussen. She left the unwashed coffee mug by the sink. pic.twitter.com/HhzAMmSCpm

26Communicating with co-workers
Day 3 of working from home: I just walked by the kitchen and said “Crazy weather we’ve been having. Any big plans for the weekend?” to my wife
— Ahmad (@Frank_Sriracha_) March 19, 2020
27It will be easier to dump him then
Working from home because of coronavirus has taught me my 24-year-old boyfriend doesn't know how to make pasta.
He put it in the pot first. Dry. No water.
— McKenzie Jean-Philippe (@McKenzie_JP) March 13, 2020
28Wow, new ideas
the only advice I can give you as someone who has been working from home with their spouse for years is to murder them in an inconspicuous way, like a slow poison over time, and then make sure you have some space like a closet or a bed that has room underneath to hide the body
— Caroline Moss (@CarolineMoss) March 18, 2020
29Oh my. Should she divorce or give it a few days?
I'm married to "for the love of Christ" guy who calls everyone "Chief"
