Red Shirt Day
A few weeks ago, two of the people in the office were wearing yellow shirts. I got it into my head that it would be amusing if we all wore the same color shirt one day. Last week, the bosses were away on vacation, so I organized a red shirt day for today to see if the bosses would notice.

Well, they didn't notice, even with having our company meeting today. Of course, this isn't all that odd given that, with one person out on vacation, the two bosses not in on the prank, and two employees not local, there were only six of us in red shirts. Since one of the employees leaves around 2:30, I decided we needed to do a "reveal" while we were all still here. The bosses seemed to appreciate it. One of them had noticed that the married couple had the same color of shirt on, but otherwise didn't notice anything.

It was pretty fun, although I found out on Friday that one of the employees chafes at any sort of group activity like this, although she was willing to play along. So, I think that means I won't be doing something like this again.

I was going to bring that up, but I don't think too many people in the office would have gotten the reference (also, I didn't want to seem like as big of a geek as I am).

I bet they would have. ;-)

Also, I am curious who the chafer is... I have guesses of course...

I'm sure EN would have. CH is on vacation this week. I'm not sure the others in the office would have.

The chafer was MM, perhaps something to do with her hippyish background. Still, like I said, she was a really good sport about it. In fact, she didn't even say anything about it until I was talking about it some more later.
