Work in the office can be stressful and often unnecessarily complicated, but by the laws of capitalism, you are left with no choice but to deal with it. And the best way of dealing with certain crazy things about your job is by laughing it out.

This artist creates lighthearted comics called "Work Chronicles" full of funny situations from the modern-day office most of us will painfully relate to. The humorous comics illustrate everything that can go wrong in the workplace—from unrealistic expectations and questionable decisions from management to annoying coworkers and overwhelming workload, to personal battles of procrastination and poor planning. Since we are all in this together, some of them hit really close to home and you'd be surprised how similar the scenarios can be regardless of your job title or place.

"My love for comics started at a young age with me doodling on the back of my exam question sheets. I continued making comics in college, but stopped once I started working. After a few years of working, I saw and heard so many funny incidents at work which I thought would make great comics, and hence restarted with work as the central theme for my comics," the artist behind these comics told Bored Panda.

"Work Chronicles" are funny and entertaining to chew because if you have ever worked in an office, you can relate to at least a few of the portrayed situations. Then, you realize that most of these jokes are not made up—these are all true and the reality strikes. Coping with stress at work, avoiding burnout, and dealing with people of various backgrounds and mindsets are our shared challenges. The artist of this comic series has found a perfect way to lay out frustrations in the form of humorous comics so that we can also keep our minds off long hours at the office, reappraise our negative thoughts, or collectively rant (whatever helps). Since August, Work Chronicles' Instagram account has attracted 15.2k like-minded people who can appreciate a little self-irony.

The artist started drawing Work Chronicles during the global pandemic and although all characters are fictional, they are inspired by real-life and personal experiences.

"I have many years of work experience. I have experienced, seen, and heard many different incidents. Some incidents have occurred to me. Some I have seen happening to colleagues. Some I have heard from others about what happens in their workplace."

Drawing comics is a creative outlet for the artist to pursue at night and on weekends. The artist doesn't consider this as a career option so far, but if things take off, they would be open to the idea. For now, the artist enjoys the creative process and the positive feedback these funny office stories accumulate. 

"The most rewarding is when a comic expresses the thought you wanted to convey. It's a bonus when readers tell you that they connected to it."

For more office humor, check out Sova the Boss comics by Alexandr Dyakov about an aggregated image of modern managers and bosses portrayed as an owl who rules the forest. Here are part 1 and part 2 of these comics. And on a more serious note, in light of the current global pandemic, here's an insight and tribute to the daily life of healthcare workers—today's heroes—who fight at the frontlines and it has gone beyond work.

Genuinely had that happen. Also, asked to do some rough workings 'back of an envelope figures' that ended up being the next 5 years financial forecast. Um, could I spend a bit more than a day on that? Nope.
