Ouch

I'm enacting a new rule of thumb effective immediately. From now I will make sure to always have a spare set of clothes at work just in case. I'll save a drawer in one of my filing cabinets specifically for this purpose, it will henceforth be known as the spare clothes drawer. I think I'll use the one that has only had a bag of Doritos in it for the last year or so.

There is a very good reason for my new rule. Generally when you show up to work late, looking like someone unleashed hell on your face, it would be helpful to not being wearing the same thing you wore to work the day before because you got to shitfaced the night before to make it home and change. Smelling like booze is not very professional. I really could've used the spare clothes drawer this morning. Now if only there was a shower at work too.

Agreed. That's happened to me before, thankfully, I did have clothes, and we DO have a shower at work, so most people were none the wiser.

or have an extra pair of boxers in case your ritual trip to the bathroom in the morning is interrupted by a gross squishy feeling- learned from experience my friend!

Eeeeee. Sharting at work can never be a good thing.
