A woman attempted to prank her former co-workers by wearing the same Hawaiian shirt to hundreds of Zoom meetings, but the joke ended up being on her. The resident of Washington, D.C., identified only as “Jackie,” said she wore the shirt to 264 remote meetings between April 2nd, 2020, and June 16th 2021.
“I was like, wouldn’t it be funny if I wore this shirt again? Like that’d be a funny joke and everyone would say something,” she said. Sadly, no one seemed to notice. “And then I thought, well, I’m going to keep doing this until someone notices, and no one ever noticed,” she said. Jackie finally spilled the beans about her shirt on her last day of work. The reaction was not what she expected. “When I told my team that I had been wearing the same shirt, they didn’t know what I was talking about. They hadn’t noticed,” she explained. “The intern literally said, ‘On purpose?’ So, there’s that,” Jackie said.
