It’s that time of year again, for the ol’ office “Secret Santa.” Thankfully we don’t do one at UPROXX (otherwise someone would be getting the finest dildo $20 can buy) but I can still vividly remember my worst Secret Santa experience. It was my first job out of college and I got stuck with the office weirdo. We had to write down three gift “suggestions” with our names, and his suggestions included three albums by an all-female Irish Celtic band called The Corrs. You may remember them, I think they had that song one time. Anyway, I didn’t have time to buy something online, and ended up going to like fifteen goddamn stores looking for these albums. Suffice to say, he ended up getting a Target gift card.
So hats off to “Scott,” the Secret Santa recipient of a Reddit user going by “anti_climax,” who didn’t sugarcoat his Secret Santa form. Let’s face it, nobody wants to have to go shopping for some random human being you arbitrarily have to spend 40+ hours a week with, and nobody wants to receive another Bath & Body Works gift set. So let’s take this as a sign that we should all just abolish office Secret Santas now going forward.
UPDATE: “Scott” has reached out to me on Twitter, and if you were wondering, he received three $15 gift cards, two of which had no balance on them. Happy holidays!
