Far out Friday: The secret confessions of office workers

by MPA13 Jun 2014
If you could make anonymous confessions about your working day, what would you say? A new app called Secret lets people post just such confessions, with hilarious results.

Here are a few of our favourite office confessions:
  1. Slowly coming to the unsettling conclusion that getting ahead in corporate society requires not telling stupid people the truth. – Portland
  2. On a conference call. Thought I was on mute. I wasn’t. Good thing a lot of people called in. Anyone could’ve made those sounds. Anyone. – San Jose
  3. Wearing Gryffindor socks to this job interview. – California
  4. 10 of the most important people in my work/play life share at least one name. I’m terrified I’m going to email the wrong one. – New York
  5. I’ve been secretly taking naps at work. It’s made me so much more productive. – Washington DC
  6. The thing I fear most at work? Clogging the toilet. – Ohio
  7. I think the receptionist judges me for the amount of online shopping I have delivered to the office.  – New York
  8. Every time I watch Mad Men, I wish it was still appropriate to drink at the office. – Friend
  9. At work, I keep a secret list of bathroom non-washers. It’s on the wiki. – San Francisco
  10. My boss told me to “Dress for the job you want, not the job you have.” Now I’m sitting in a disciplinary meeting dressed as Batman. – Nashville


Is TILA-RESPA a good or bad thing long term?
