As a general rule, it's better not to mime sex acts at work.
But amish_guy probably knows this by now after this happened:
I was drinking at a firm sponsored happy hour with my co-workers. Things are going great; beer is flowing, the wings are great, and people are laughing. Somehow the discussion turns to sexual slang and I stupidly blurt out, “dirty Sanchez!”
It would have been just fine until one of my female managers tasked what it was. So I berated her for not knowing and then described it in great detail…with finger movements.
It’s been ten years and I still get called out on it.
Who say pickles don't use cellphones?

I used to wear a costume and shake a sign outside to advertise for a Halloween store. It isn’t as humiliating as you’d think (most people ignore you) but it’s painfully boring. My favorite costume was a giant pickle one because I could hide my head and one arm inside while shaking the sign with the other and browse reddit or watch entire movies. I’m so glad Halloween season is over.
When you want a day off work, why not just create a horrifying family emergency for your boss?

An old boss was being a dick. I called his wife at home and told her he’d had a heart attack and been rushed to hospital. I then got a mate to call my boss’s line and say he was a paramedic and his wife had been taken to hospital with a suspected heart attack.
They both met up with each other at the ER and I got I took the rest of the day off.
There are just...so many questions about this.

Worked at Domino’s as a driver when I was in college. When we were slow we were required to go in the back of the shop to fold boxes. I started a tradition of doing this naked. Co-workers were shocked at first to see a naked guy folding boxes but it caught on.
This is why you can never find a cart at Target.

When I worked at Target as a cart attendant, I would sleep in my car until they called me in the walkie talkie. If they asked where I was at, I’d say I was collecting carts. I would also go next door to circuit city and play on the guitar hero demo for hours, had the top 5 high scores. Good times. Oh i also actually went to apply to another job during my shift once, IKEA was across the street so I thought I’d give it a try.
