Am I the only one that thinks it’s preposterous that firms and companies allow (and encourage!) adult employees to dress up in Halloween costumes at some point this week?

Sometimes I wonder where things went wrong in people’s lives that they become anti-fun. It’s not required that you dress up. In two weeks you won’t even remember people dressed up. Not sure why it matters


“To each their own”


I mean... I 100% went to work dressed up as True from True and the Rainbow Kingdom and loved every second of it. I think to each their own, yeah? It's not like you're talking about it being required or frowned upon if you don't participate and it's literally just for one day. I seriously doubt it has a negative impact on productivity either, so I'm not sure what the problem is.

Do you have good health insurance? I hope so, because you need emergency surgery to have that stick from your a$$ removed.


I am so stealing this...


The first firm I was at encouraged costumes and a first year associate dressed as a sexy cop. That was the last year of costumes at work.


Love how everyone assumed it was a first year FEMALE sexy cop...yeah #fatsexyboycops


You need to smoke some weed and chill out


Whatever lets you maintain the illusion this work even matters buddy


We are not allow to dress up at Deloitte. You are required to wear your Deloitte issued uniform at all times.


No shit

Who pissed in your Cheerios?




Man these replies are too aggressive.

But yes, you’re the only one.


The sexy cop example is obviously extreme.

Otherwise nothing preposterous if it’s at the company home office.

Let people live a little, and live a little yourself


Dude—what the hell? Why does this bother you so much? People like to have fun—you don’t have to dress up so chill out. I like to dress up and we have fun team contests for different categories of costume. Stay home those days to work if it bothers you that much.


People like to have some fun? It’s not all about working and being miserable everyday. It’s a team building exercise as well


You’re not the only one, but you are probably a small minority.

Does it bother you that people still get excited about Halloween?

You need to go see Halloween at Southwest. The decorations at the airport just hint at what is going on in Dallas.

The costume on the right is made out of little empty peanut bags glued together. The guy on the left is Herb.

Wow that’s creative & professionally done

I did the naughty cheerleader, no one liked my hairy legs though


Alrighty. Clearly there is a lot of Halloween passion in this group and my post triggered quite a few of you. It’s OK to be anti something - I was looking for other like minded individuals. Not to be torn apart and have my character assassinated over Halloween costumes.


Is it tho🧐

You’re like Halloween Scrooge. Could be a good costume idea!


Lighten up Francis


So as a grown adult, your idea of fun is going to work dressed as a costume?


Is that Joker dressed as a dog or a dog dressed as joker?


Who hurt you?


Things I don’t like - people that think their opinion on random shit is interesting to other people

(oh that and humorless people that don’t like Halloween - who tf doesn’t like Halloween?)

You are not alone.
