  • Sounds like the Underpants Gnomes are trying to diversify their portfolio.



  • I see it as a career goal of mine to never leave my pants in a conference room. 



  • I've worked with some female coworkers who believed very strongly in 'layering'. One of them typically wore a blouse, under which was a t-shirt, under which was an undershirt. She always had a (thin) sweater and a jacket on hand, in case it got too cold. (For example, if she needed to go into the server room.)

    I don't know for certain she didn't have anything on under her undershirt, but she never took *that* off.

    (None of the other women I've worked with have believed that strongly in layering - except for one occasion, they all went with dual layers as default, and only one of them frequently had multiple 'more' options.)

    TRWTF is her use of 'Indian Giver' in today's PC environment.

    Maybe they use Macs?  Ha ha, just kidding!

     

    Seriously, though, that's why I always say "Native American giver". 



  • Would be a interesting experiment though. To just leave some female/male underpants in a meetingroom. Just to see how the company would deal with that :)



  • A secondary WTF is that she doesn't know who took the blouse. Unless she wants her (or him..) to be put to public shame, in which case never mind.

    a while ago there was a black bra hanging from under a tile in the suspended ceiling in our office. it hung there for about a week, don't know what happened with it though - one morning it wasn't there when i looked.

    In my old school, there was an unused tampon stuck the wall behind the teacher, way op high in the corner (6 m. high wall). One day one of my classmates brought a box of tampons he'd swiped from his sister, wet one at the fountain, whirled it around and let go. It hit the wall and remained there until they eventually tore the building down. Never seen much of that kind of shenanigans in the workplace, though.

    I've got it: The Real WTF is that an attractive article of women's clothing was available in large, right?

    FTFY.

     

    Man, they really know how to make 'em so they slip comfortably into just about anything, don't they?

    No, you mis-read. She was talking about a rather white blouse. Not completely white, but pretty white.
