It’s always interesting to see your husband, wife, boyfriend, or girlfriend when they’re in “work mode”, isn’t it?
You’re used to seeing them before and after work, but now that we’re all crammed together working at home, it’s a whole new ballgame, folks.
You’re seeing a whole new person right in front of your eyes.
Here are some funny posts about people seeing their partners in “work mode” for the first time.
1. Let’s circle back.
2. He saves it for work.
Turns out my husband can actually small talk, just not with anyone we know in non-work life.

3. Who is this person?!?!
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?

4. I don’t understand what’s happening.
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.

5. He needs privacy.
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.

6. Table and revisit.
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!

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

8. Shook to your core.
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.

9. You’re one of her employees.
Hearing my wife in meetings–especially with subordinates–and it dawns on me that she uses personnel management techniques on me all the time.

10. How you doing, Chief?
I’m married to “for the love of Christ” guy who calls everyone “Chief”

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

12. About to vomit.

Like I said, you’re having a whole new person revealed to you right in front of your eyes…
Kinda weird, huh?
