That workplace reputation thread got me thinking.

What if some of us work in the same place without realising it?

So at 13:00 ODT today, everyone say the following out loud:

“Oh, Theo.”

If you overhear anyone doing that - or better yet, if you harmonise beautifully - then you’ll know.

someone just said The O G B on the other side of the office


#3

Six minutes early by my count.

Call them a stupid cunt - if they hang out here they’ll understand.


#4

Nobody in my office is here.


#5

I like to whisper “the fat man walks alone” to test if someone new is cool at work. Never works.


#6

I did this experiment whilst alone in my flat. Would have been a bit exciting (terrifying) if I’d heard something.


#7

sorry, I missed this.

Can we do it again at 13:30?


#8

Yes.

I’ll join in again, just in case you work in my office.
