Abby Gaydosh: “I’m still trying to figure out if there’s a prank involved…”
What engineer Abby Gaydosh was suspicious of doesn’t matter to this Mindset—around Choice One, it could be anything. Just a single paper out of place on your desk might mean there’s an airhorn under your chair ready to blast when you sit.
It can be rather difficult to tell what is and is not a prank around here—we do lots of ridiculous things to confuse reality. To help Abby, here are some things at Choice One that are NOT jokes, no matter how crazy they might sound:
- Genuine, passionate enthusiasm for the minutiae of traffic signal timings, detention basins, and sanitary effluent.
- Several of us have legit modeling careers.
- Eating 176.75 Skyline cheese coneys in one hour. On purpose.
- Strange obsession with wearing green
It’s not that we can’t be trusted. It’s just that Abby’s newer, and she just hasn’t experienced all of our repetitive jokes/pranks that we keep finding funny. Perhaps we should make watching the Choice One Scare-tober video a standard onboarding assignment (you can see Abby at 14 seconds). At least then newer employees, including Abby, will know it’s important to always peek around corners and check under ordinary looking desks to verify the presence of a prank.
