So today something weird happened in the office and I’m not sure which party is at fault. In all actuality, it could be both.
A coworker of mine wore the same shirt today (Wednesday) that he wore on Monday. Weird right?
Or is it more weird that I noticed it?
I’m pretty sure I’m the only person who noticed it today which makes it even weirder, right?
I notice when he wears the double-worn shirt because I have a similar one and on more than one occasion we have worn them at the same time.
I hate that.
My reaction when I walk in and see someone wearing the same color shirt is usually something along the lines of…
At some point someone usually notices which results in different variations of the “we must not have gotten the memo” comments.
That meant this week was going to be conflict free in the wardrobe department.
Since one of the shirts had already been worn by a coworker this week, I decided to wear my matching shirt yesterday.
Then I walked in this morning and saw him wearing it again.
My first thought wasn’t “that’s gross,” “is that shirt even clean,” or “am I mistaken?”
Which, for the record, I’m not mistaken. I may not pay attention a lot of things, but I DO pay attention to what shirts are being worn and when.
I used to even keep track of when he wore the shirt on a sticky note (in code of course) so I knew when it would be safe to wear mine.
Plus, I don’t want to take part in another Same Shirt Buddy photo-op.
Nope, I didn’t care if his shirt was clean or dirty, instead I was thinking about something else.
“How can I schedule when to wear mine if he’s pulling stunts like that?”
I guess there’s only one thing left to do.
That’s not weird, right?
