“Adding ‘showed up to work during the apocalypse’ to my résumé”

The 2019–20 coronavirus pandemic sent many people home to quarantines, but many essential workers stayed on the job. “I’m adding ‘showed up for/to work during the apocalypse’ to my résumé” is a jocular saying that has been printed on many images.

“Adding ‘showed up to work during the apocalypse’ to my resume” was posted on Twitter by DL Toots on March 22, 2020. “Adding ‘showed up for work during the apocalypse’ to my resume”—“for work” instead of “to work”—was posted on Twitter by Skidz on March 27, 2020.


Wikipedia: 2019-20 coronavirus outbreak
