Here at Single Dad Laughing, you know we’re all about being real, and being awesome, and letting ourselves be human. On SDL we have The Truth Box, where humans submit their anonymous secret battles. We have Weird Confessions, where real people anonymously divulge their greatest quirks and secret habits. We have Wrong Numbers where people anonymously reply to wrong-number texts from me, a complete stranger.

And then we have… This. Anonymous confessions from the workplace. These are the submissions I received when I randomly put up a form and asked all of you to submit your work secrets.

Some (to me) are hilarious. Some, mischievously inspiring. Others seem to cross a big line that makes me squirm and say: “Too far! Too far!” But… it’s not my place to judge. I’ll leave that to all of you in the voting boxes below!

Oh, and don’t forget to submit your own anonymous Workplace Confession at the end of the post.

    “I smoke ridiculous amounts of pot before work just to survive the people I work with. They always say I’m so calm about everything, well that’s because I have a little help.”
