30 year old Patrick Sweeney was today left devastated as he discovered that he completely forgot about his company’s casual Friday policy and showed up to work in a fully cleaned and pressed suit. Like an idiot.
Patrick works as a financial analyst in the IFSC in Dublin and spent hours on Thursday evening preparing his clothing for the next day.
Tragedy set in as Patrick arrived into his city centre office, to make the harsh realisation that he was the only pleb wearing his suit.
As soon as Patrick sat at his desk, the 76 people on his floor made their way to him, where they aggressively insulted him for making the horrific mistake.
His colleagues, including the CEO, then spent the next 15 minutes laughing in his face before returning to work, where they continue to shun him.
As is standard HR practice in the company, Patrick’s next of kin were informed immediately about the incident.
Weeping exclusively to The Potato, Patrick’s distraught mother commented:
“I didn’t realise my son was capable of such things. I’m shocked, upset and utterly disappointed.”
Patrick was forced to eat lunch on his own and will spend Friday afternoon working in a dark corner of the office, away from all the normal people who weren’t idiots and didn’t forget about casual Friday.
