Slap Your Annoying Coworker Day

Slap Your Annoying Coworker Day takes place annually on October 23rd and is the perfect excuse to reply to an annoying colleague! On a typical day, we tolerate such an employee, avoid dialogues, ignore … But today we advise you to throw out emotions (this is also useful!).


We did not find the person who founded the holiday, but we are sure that he did not mean direct physical impact. A caustic word, a worthy answer, a stern look can become a slap in the face – all this will put an annoying colleague in his place. It’s easier to solve problems with your mouth than with your fists.

Colleagues were annoying at all times. It can be sucking up to the boss, eavesdropping on other people’s conversations, collecting gossip, setting the team against one person, constant stupid chatter … Whatever they do on this day, they better beware of those who can respond to their actions!

Fun facts

Interesting points:

  • A French proverb says “revenge is a dish best served cold.” This means that the longer you wait, the more influence you will have on the victim;
  • some resources even make up the hitting rules! A few of them: 1 person can get slapped per hour, you can get slapped for every annoying action, it’s okay to lie to your boss… Don’t take it seriously, it’s just a joke;
  • in the film Groundhog Day, Andy has stabbed the same colleague over the years;
  • there are slapping competitions: 80% of the fights involve girls. The spectacle is gaining a lot of views on the Internet. Judges evaluate the winner by strength, serve, knockdowns.

How to celebrate

Be patient, talk to a disturbing colleague. Let me know what you think of it! Talk to other employees and get their opinion on the situation: get together and resolve the issue peacefully.
