Game of Thrones is one of the most popular TV shows on the planet these days, so it makes sense that almost everyone (if not everyone) in the office watches it. And, of course, after an exciting episode, you all want to talk about it and compare notes. But your coworker who missed the show last night might not be thrilled about it.
Their daughter had a ballet recital, so there was no way they could make it – but that’s all they’re thinking about today, and you can bet it’s what they’ve got planned for the evening. So, it’s understandable why she put up this sign asking everyone in the office to please be wary of spoilers. And hey, she didn’t ask them not to talk about it, just not to do it around her desk. Hopefully, they were mindful of her wishes that day!
A study done by the American Psychiatric Association revealed that more than one in 10 people in the country suffers from a phobia – 40% of which is about bugs, mainly spiders. People here seem to be irrationally afraid of them, almost. Probably thanks in large part to the urban legend about the spider laying an egg sack in the sleeping woman’s cheek. Also, the movie Arachnophobia didn’t help!
This office worker decided to have a little midday fun by scaring the pants off of their coworkers. They knew that the guy right behind them was deathly afraid of spiders and that he wouldn’t stop humming that day. So, they decided to create this brilliant scheme: point, gasp, and leave the rest to fate. Needless to say, that guy went home a little early that day.
Missing the Point
The big fish in this office grew tired of dealing with the sarcastic environment, so he thought he’d put his foot down in a way that garnered some laughs. The sign did, in fact, get some giggles – but maybe not exactly in the way the boss had hoped. Someone decided to point out the error in the signage, which just makes it that much funnier.
Unfortunately, whoever made this sign wound up being the butt of the joke rather than the comedian role they were going for. It didn’t make it much past the point of having its picture taken because they pulled the sign as soon as they realized their spelling error. Or, more like, had it sarcastically presented anyways.
It’s bound to happen once in a while that some unfortunate employee loses their beloved fur baby and posts “lost” signs up around their workplace. When this person’s gentle, sweet, non-vicious ball of fluff went missing, they panicked. Luckily, they were able to post this sign – to warn everyone he was on the loose.
No, that kitty wasn’t missing at all when this sign was put up in the office. Someone in the building just thought that this picture was hysterical and wanted to share it with the world. Hey, we need laughs around the workplace, and we say the more, the merrier! Bring on the funny viral kitty pictures and memes galore. The boss may not be too happy about it, but the employees certainly appreciate the humor.
You know that one person in your office who has a cubicle lined with pictures of their babies – or fur babies? Yeah, well, there’s pretty much one of those people everywhere. Personalized touches do make the office feel cozier – at least, for the person they belong to.
Right now, as you’re reading this, you can probably see Anne’s desk, covered in frames full of pictures of her children. One of them was on their first day of school when they were younger, one of them graduating from high school, and of course, a family shot taken at the department store by a professional photographer. Well, instead of kids, this person has fur babies that they’re overly proud of. So proud, in fact, that they’ve invested in all types of customized kitty gear
