Ahh, Brutus Day – the perfect opportunity to be eeeeeviiiilllllllll.
Today I took credit for a co-worker’s hard graft; lied to a fellow shopper that a member of staff had found something he’d dropped so that I could take his place in the queue; and even managed to squeeze in enough time to help a little old lady across the road, only to then steal a half-knitted bobble hat from her bag. All in all, a most successful celebration.
It was then that I realised today is meant to be about raising awareness of backstabbing and even promoting its prevention, rather than committing it. But I’m sure that the Days Of The Year website manager told me I had to be like Brutus for the day.*
Hmm… et tu, Jono?
*Not necessarily true.
