The more socially-engaged of your co-workers are busy decorating work spaces for the company contest, while parading around in their carefully crafted costumes. You, meanwhile, sit proudly at your desk with a name tag that says “Jim” — hahahahaha! Your name is really Steve. You clever devil.
You’re undoubtedly saving your best costume for the weekend party, since Halloween finally falls on a Saturday night again…right? Okay, don’t worry Steve, there’s still time! You like Social Media, yes? Why not make a Social Media-themed costume?
