This week, our winning Oh, Come On winning moment is as follows:
*I hate to admit it, but sometimes I work on the weekends. And sometimes, I want to do so in the peace of the office, as opposed to sitting at the kitchen table attempting to focus while my two young girls run circles around the house (and sometimes, me). This particular weekend, I drove myself to the office, and as I walked through the conference room, I stopped dead in my tracks; I was not alone. In fact, I had found two of my colleagues, both also in after hours, in what you might call a compromising position. Needless to say, I lost my appetite for getting work done at the office that day, and quickly made the trip back to my more PG household. Also needless to say, the image of it all is still burned into my memory to this day.
Oh, Come On.
Each week, we’ll ask you to provide your own Oh, Come On moment for us to share with the world. Shoot an email to Looking@look-solutions.com with a story you have to tell of a coworker or someone you know in the workforce who did something utterly idiotic. Don’t want to email it? Post your story directly on our Facebook page with the words, “My Oh, Come On moment is.” We’ll then share it in a list in each week’s post (while absolutely honoring your desire for anonymity; tell us if you want your story posted sans names), and at the end of each week, we’ll provide the person who gave us the best Oh, Come On moment with a $10 Starbucks gift card! After all, who doesn’t deserve a few cups of coffee for having put up with workplace idiocy? We all do.
Now it’s your turn! Send us your Oh, Come On moments and next thing you know, you’ll be feeling better, sipping coffee and smiling that you’re not the only one who’s had to deal with one or two ridiculous and absurd workplace situations.
