This collection of tweets shows just how crazy the last 6 months have been ...
2020 started out like any other year; full of hope, excitement, and long lists of things that were going to get done. For most of us, a global pandemic, massive economic crisis, and total yanking of the rug right out from under normal life was not on the radar. Life has changed ... a lot, for everyone. Working from home has become the normal, online learning is becoming old hat, and virtual and live stream events have replaced many in-person events.
Social media has documented how the world has changed and shown us countless pictures of cats and dogs, kids, work from home gifs, virtual performances, and so much more. Take a look at this collection of pandemic tweets that has us laughing (and crying):
It all started with the toilet paper.
Our son Elijah snatched up two packs of toilet paper for a family in need and now his friend’s are making memes lol pic.twitter.com/ThsETDJMll— Y.R. Sparks 🌕 (@yellowredsparks) March 14, 2020
🧻 Last Spring, I was down to my last roll of toilet paper. I was not one of those Americans who raided the toilet paper aisle before the Pandemic began. Just didn't occur to me. I have learned my lesson. This time I have stocked up for the next 7 months. Never again. 🧻— Alex (@aroseblush) September 10, 2020
Everyone is making bread, all the time, and it does not seem like it will ever stop.
back to more baking tweets that no one asked for ✨— annie 🌸 (@einnaew) July 25, 2020
more banana bread (this time w almond upgrade) and madeleines for my grandma pic.twitter.com/9vrRfjxvHK
not to brag, but I created grated parmesan cheese in the food processor, which is apparently a thing you can do! *note I am not baking bread, these other food tweets are my protest.— melanie zoey (@melaniezoey) May 20, 2020
Pandemic baking getting out of hand? Scientist bakes sourdough bread with 4,500-year-old yeast found in Egyptian pottery, Seamus Blackley video game designer tweets baking - CBS News https://t.co/wJPz0KErid— Peter McInnis (@PeterSMcInnis) May 3, 2020
Parenting tweets ... everyone is going crazy.
What do you get when you stick three kids and two adults with full time jobs in a house 24 hours a day for 6 months and then add in zoom school? A toddler who walks around all day shouting “Oh Dear God!”, apparently.— Real Life Mommy (@reallifemommy3) September 10, 2020
For months my 2 year old has woken us at 6am with getting-murdered SCREAMS from her crib. Last night I asked her if she could just quietly call for us & she gave a casual "yeah sure." This morning I could barely hear her gentle request. How can someone so insane be so reasonable?— Henpecked Hal (@HenpeckedHal) September 10, 2020
Our six year old came downstairs yelling "the sky is yellow!" I replied that earth had now become Mars and we can never go outside ever again. The crying that followed lasted longer than I had anticipated.— andrew_pi (@Bwuh) September 9, 2020
me: you need to go wash your hands— Henpecked Hal (@HenpeckedHal) March 17, 2020
son: because of the virus?
me: your hands are literally wedged inside your own butt right now
Kiddo's been playing Lego Batman for a while now and he wanted to play a grown up Batman game so we started Arkham Knight together. It's a good thing it doesn't open with anything that could traumatize a 4 year old like INCINERATING THE JOKER'S CORPSE.— Joel McDonald (@AtYes2Ats) August 23, 2020
Man, I'm bad at this.
Me: Masks, like underwear, need to be washed before you rewear them.— Sara Says Stop (@PetrickSara) September 10, 2020
My kid: Wait...what?
Me: You’re wearing the same underwear, aren’t you?
Online learning: the struggle is real. Parents are being reminded exactly how much they do not know or simply forgot from their own time in school, while some are having a lot of fun pranking the kids.
Note to parents from the teacher: If it takes your child longer than 30 minutes to do their math homework, just write a note and I'll excuse the rest.— Rodney Lacroix (@RodLacroix) September 8, 2020
Me: What if they ask for my help but it takes me longer than 30 minutes just to understand how to do it?
I'm homeschooling my kids.— joe heenan (@joeheenan) March 13, 2020
It's tough, especially having to take their lunch money off them & throwing their schoolbags over the hedge but we're getting there
Honesty, we feel you.
Hiding in the bathroom from my toddler. Told her I had to poop. It's the only reason she'll let me out of her sight at bed time.— Bradley Lafortune (@BradLafortune) June 30, 2020
I love you all but unless your “activities you can do with your kids” article is just “stick your kid in front of the TV with a bowl of Goldfish” I am really not interested— Amber Sparks🪓 (@ambernoelle) June 26, 2020
Sent my kid to my mother-in-law’s house today FOR THE FIRST TIME IN 3 MONTHS. She says, “Don’t worry. I won’t miss you, mama!”— Mommy Owl (@Lhlodder) June 16, 2020
No worries, sweetie, I won’t miss you either.
I got some new Soft Pants and now I’m not sure if they are for inside or outside. 2019 me would probably have said inside but 2020 me is open to possibilities— lex (@lexsaur) September 6, 2020
Been there, done that!
I was going to tweet something political and I decided to stick to my usual parenting tweets.— 😺 Cat Jacques 😺 (@CatJacquesESPN) August 12, 2020
I posted to FB instead. Pissing people off there is WAY more rewarding.
I’m at the point in quarantine where I’m showing my cat funny tweets and memes— 🧛🏻♀ (@ohlaurenfrances) September 9, 2020
What year is this? I stopped keeping track when I purchased 5 pairs of pajamas. I know have 2 per day... proud day for me!!! My current goal is to learn how to sew the days of the week on my underwear. That way it’s easier to keep track of the things 😀— Lidys Toro (@LidysToro) April 14, 2020
#coronavirus twilight zone: Couples and marriages after 14 days of quarantine by #COVIDー19 ...— Tocamelaotravez (@tocamelaotravez) April 1, 2020
You just have to decide who is the crow and who is the cat!👍😁😁👍 #CoronavirusUSA pic.twitter.com/IJray5oxEd
Time to be grateful.
Guysssssss once you still have a job whether you are an entrepreneur or working for someone, be grateful. Covid has been in the world for 9 months now and a lot of businesses have closed their doors because of the fall out from this virus.— Patrice J White (@patricejwhite) September 9, 2020
How to take the best poop according to science showed up in my feed, and now it's in yours. You're welcome. https://t.co/73YhSMfAKE— Shannon the Shenanigator (@ShannyGasm) September 10, 2020
Arguing with an idiot is like playing chess♟with a pigeon.— Khaaliya 🦋💨 (@NextLevelTier) September 8, 2020
No matter how good you are, the bird is going to poop on the board and strut around as if it won.
Stop wasting your energy on fools who remain on fool time 😳😉!
Today is Wear Your Duvet To Work Day. It’s a thing I just made up. Don’t worry, your boss’ll be fine with it.— Cam (@GinAndJif) September 2, 2020
Pretty much sums it up.
When the passport you applied for in March arrives in the mail in September for a trip you never ended up taking in April that’s called a 2020— Vision Bored (@VisionBored1) September 9, 2020
The seven stages of quarantine— Yasmine Mohammed ياسمين محمد 🦋 (@YasMohammedxx) May 1, 2020
1) Panic buying
2) Anger and Fear
3) Zoom parties
4) Home workouts
5) Tiger King
6) Banana bread
7) Elasticated pants
it’s so cute how at the beginning of quarantine we were like “I’ll just buy one puzzle and that’ll take up ALL my extra time!”— Betches (@betchesluvthis) April 18, 2020
We’re gonna have a new diagnosis for 2020 PTSD. And people are gonna talk about us like we do the Depression. “Oh, well, you know, she lived through 2020, that’s why we’ll be cleaning out a hoard of toilet paper, hand sanitizer, and ACAB stickers when she dies.”— Kingfisher & Wombat (@UrsulaV) September 10, 2020
