We have come to the point in our lives where everyone who works for a decent enough company has a whatsapp work group.
The group that is “ting-ing” all the time because there is “Oh so much to share”. I wake up to it and I sleep to it. There are people messaging in the group at 4 a.m at night without caring about the rest of us who are NOT doing night shift.
And yes I have tried muting it. Thank god there is a mute option. Doesn’t work though because every thing, every fucking detail, follow up, complain is mentioned on the group and if you are unaware of it you get stared by a couple of judgemental eyes who know you’re mute is AWN.
So today I woke up to another notification from my work group. Someone had posted a semi nude selfie.
You know those moments when you think you look like this:
Funniest. Thing. Ever.
I know I’m laughing like a hyena but underneath I feel bad for him.
Sending a selfie to the wrong person is one thing. Sending a semi nude selfie to your work group on Whatsapp where all your colleagues get to know you have never seen the inside of a gym? That’s a another level of humiliation only a few can reach.
And what if he had posted a picture of himself in his underwear? What if he had posed like Justin Bieber holding his stuff?
AND what if he had posted a picture bearing actual nudity? The possibilities are endless.
So I start my day today not with a morning coffee but a semi nude selfie from a coworker who isn’t all that anyway?
Can’t imagine how FUN the rest of the day will be.
