Punk Rock HR Public Service Announcement: Halloween


It’s almost Halloween, so I wanted to publish my annual PSA.

Don’t wear a Halloween costume to work. Just don’t.

I gave this advice to a group of IT professionals back in 2004. Someone told me, “It’s politically correct people like you who ruin Halloween for the rest of us.”

No, dood. Don’t put this on me. It’s the 35 year-old guy who decided to dress up like a baby for the Halloween office party in 2003 — complete with a diaper and a pacifier — who ruined it for the rest of us.

Me? I’m just the arbiter of common-freakin-sense.

What’s the stupidest or most offensive Halloween costume you’ve seen in the office? C’mon HR, pros. I know you have horror stories.
