40. Wear the same outfit to work for an entire week and see if anyone notices

Do you know how much this made me laugh? This made my week. Made me giggle every morning. Made me smile every time I looked down and noticed what I was wearing.

Day 1 - Same clothes all week

I didn’t plan on doing this the week of June 14, but on Monday afternoon it struck me that it was a good week to try it out. So I wore the outfit again on Tuesday.

Day 2 - Same clothes all week

Do you know that only one person said anything? Erin noticed at 10:42 on Wednesday morning. She leaned over to me in an all-staff meeting and said, “Did you wear that on Monday? Is this THE WEEK?” I told her it was, and  also told her I’d washed everything the night before so she didn’t need to worry that I was starting to smell or anything. She laughed at me.

Day 3 - Same clothes all week

By Thursday I have to admit, I was glad we work flexible schedules in the summer so I didn’t have to face the same clothes on Friday.

Day 4 - Same clothes all week

Yes indeed. I made myself laugh. And if Erin hadn’t said anything, I’d have gotten away with it scot-free!

  1. You know what this tells me…

    1) Most people are so engrossed in their own thing that they don’t notice others (not a good or a bad thing, just what is).
    2) Most people have so many MORE clothes than they need!!

  2. That’s a riot.
    And it does make me wonder how many did notice but just didn’t say anything. Two weeks ago I went from wearing a tiny silver stud in my nose to a ring – a pretty big change for a nose piercing. I have always wanted one, but felt it might be “too much” for this conservative hell-hole I live in, and I finally decided that they can bite me. Only two people have mentioned it, even though I am 100% certain EVERYONE has noticed it. I can only assume that’s because no one likes it/thinks it appropriate, but doesn’t dare say anything.

  3. Karin, I agree on #1, but might have to disagree with #2. I think I have a pretty good amount of clothes – not too many, not too few. Of course, I’m a relentless clothing-weeder, so that helps.

    Jess, way to go for putting in your nose-ring instead of a stud. You’re likely right that no one says anything when they find it somehow “wrong”, but it may also be that they just chalk it up to another weird thing their weird boss does. 😉

  4. This is so f’n funny! I guess not being in high school works to your advantage with this. The bitches would have made nasty comments the second day if you were in the way back machine. 🙂
