There are some things that just shouldn’t be done in public.
Like gargling, cutting your toenails, or putting 27 packets of Splenda in a single cup of coffee (you know who you are).
News flash: The workplace is public. And while putting 27 packets of Splenda in each cup of coffee is disgusting, it doesn’t even begin to fall into the “inappropriate” category.
There are things that are perfectly acceptable in the comfort of your own home, that are not even marginally ok in the workplace. Unless you’re a medical professional.
Some things are perfectly acceptable in the privacy of your own home, that are dangerous to have tied to your social profile online.
New idea: I’m proposing the Mom Rule. If it’s something you wouldn’t tell your mom, don’t put it on the internet and don’t talk about it at work. Just don’t.
And if you have to put 27 packets of Splenda in a cup of coffee, get help (you still know who you are).
