National Slap Your Irritating Co-Worker Day


Slap Your Irritating Co-Worker Day is the day each year when those who have an irritating coworker don't have to hold back, and have an excuse to slap the person they just can't stand. The creators of the day seem to imply that it is perfectly acceptable to really get into the day, but we think maybe the day should be taken a little tongue-in-cheek. In what ways may a co-worker be irritating? Well, maybe they talk nonstop. Maybe they constantly mess things up and create more work for other people. Maybe they are a constant suck up to the boss. Maybe they are so unpleasant no one can stand being in the same room with them. Whatever it is that makes them irritating, they better watch out, because today they are going to get slapped.

National Slap Your Irritating Co-Worker Day, also known as National Slap Your Annoying Co-Worker Day and National Slap Your Co-Worker Day, is observed next on Wednesday, October 23rd, 2019. It has always been observed annually on October 23rd.
