The first day at a new job is always terrifying! New faces and a totally different environment are bound to freak newcomers out! Clumsy introductions and embarrassing situations are a mandatory part of the first day.
Such hilarious things just make it so much worse. We bet everyone can relate to extremely comical first-day-at-work moments!
Check out these awkward yet funny things that happen to all newbies on their first day at office.
1. Arriving early
You don’t want to be late for your first day of work because you don’t want to look unprofessional. So you end up arriving early always. The only people who end up beating you to the punch are the janitors.
2. Having no idea where to go
You constantly panic because you still have to get the hang of where things are. So you try memorising every detail of every place so you don’t get lost. Leaving a trail of breadcrumbs behind always seems like a good idea in these times.
3. Introducing yourself
Introductions are the worst, especially when you know that nobody cares about anything other than your name. Even that’ll be difficult for them to remember correctly.
4. Remembering names
The awkward moment when your co-workers introduce themselves and you forget all of their names in 0.5 seconds! Every time you need to ask a question to someone, in particular, you try to gather their attention by coughing or sending them a message through telekinesis!
5. When you’re being assigned what to do
When you boss is giving you tasks to do and you are trying to look like you understand but on the inside, you’re breaking down!
6. Being a Loner at the Lunch Table
Lunch is exactly like it was in highschool; terrifying. So you just stand there hoping somebody offers you a place and try not to make a face every time you get a whiff of the cafeteria food.
7. Talking the talk
When you’ve finally found a place to sit amongst your coworkers but you fail to keep up with the conversation. Everything that they’re saying just goes in one ear and comes out the other.
8. Not knowing what to do
It is super awkward when you’re finished with your work and you don’t know what to do. So you pretend to be really engrossed in some important work.
9. Trying to find the toilet
When you’ve finally prolonged the need to go to the toilet because you feel too awkward to ask. So you prepare yourself for the impending doom of getting lost.
10. Finally going home
After all the strangers you met today and the tasks you had to complete, you’re just glad that it’s finally time for you to go home.
