The last job we had before working at Woot, we were stuck in a windowless and poorly-ventilated room with this guy we’ll call “Paul.”
Several times daily, Paul would erupt into snickers at some hilarious thing he’d found online. Apparently, the snickering was supposed to pique our interest, and we were supposed to ask him what was so funny and then he could show it to us. Well, we never, ever, ever asked what was so funny. So he was always forced to snicker again, louder this time, and when that failed, finally deign to address us directly and say “you have to see this.”
Then we’d have to stop whatever we were doing (updating our makeoutclub profile or playing solitaire), walk over to Paul’s desk, get a look at whatever ancient piece of web humor he’d stumbled on for the first time and tell him yeah, we’d seen that before.
After a while, we started wearing headphones all day so we could ignore him without seeming super rude. But most of the time, there was nothing playing through them. They were just our anti-Paul totem, to ward him off like garlic.
Wear this shirt: with pants and shoes for that trendy “clothed” look!
Don’t wear this shirt: base jumping. Base jumping is dangerous.
This shirt tells the world: “Na na na na na na I can’t hear you”
We call this color: Cranberry Flava In Ya Ear
