Whoever came up with the idea that Julia Louis-Dreyfus should play the Vice President of the United States (we’re looking at you, Armando Iannucci) is brilliant. Not only does Veep showcase the comedian as one of the best characters we’ve ever seen her play (sorry, Elaine), but Selina Meyer is surrounded by a ragtag group of misfits we love just as much. Mostly because — expletives aside — they seem to be able to say exactly what we’re thinking when things don’t go our way at work.

When Veep returns Sunday, April 12 at 10:30 p.m. on HBO Canada, Selina will have taken over POTUS duties, which means there are way more truth bombs in store. Until then, we’ve assembled some of the doozies from seasons past to help get you through your next tough work week. You probably shouldn’t say any of these things, but maybe next time you’re in that situation you can think about them and laugh it off instead.

 

When your meeting runs pointlessly long, again.

Probably shouldn’t have handled that last situation so graciously, huh?

Serenity now…serenity now.

When you’re asked to work overtime on the weekend. Again.

You had big plans with your PVR, too.

When your uptight co-worker just won’t chill out already.

We smell a new office policy.

When YOU just need to chill out after a super long day but you can’t go home quite yet.

It’s called vending machine snack time, guys.

When your co-worker thinks office Timbits will make up for them coming in late yet again.

But damn it if you won’t eat one (or three) anyhow.

When your cubicle mate huffs loudly when you pack up to go five minutes early.

Why does the guilt always work on you anyhow?

When that over-achiever keeps interrupting you during a meeting.

Well, clearly you’re not the veep, but you are someone, dammit.

When you’re assigned another freaking group project.

You know you’re going to probably do all of the work anyhow.

When your co-worker won’t stop humble bragging about her latest mid-year evaluation.

When someone else’s mistake means more work for you.

Note to self: look into using those health benefits for a massage already.

When that co-worker corrects the email you whipped up on your way into the office from your phone.

Yeah, we’d be fired for living the Veep life.
