The weekend is just around the corner, which means there’s only one more official day of dealing with your [insert whatever adjective you desire here] colleagues before you can spend a lush 48 hours without thinking about them or your job or the overpriced work salad with “lite vinaigrette” once. But although you are a discerning citizen with a social life and a bucket of spiked horchata to get to as soon as the clock strikes 6 p.m. on Friday, there is still some time to waste until then.

Why not try searching for stock images of men making inexplicable messes at the office as a way to pass the time, or does that feel like it may be too much effort? Luckily, I did the work for you. Come with me on this journey.

They start out earnestly. An honest small mess like any normal human would make. Judge not lest she be judged.

But then a man appears to be intentionally dripping jelly from a jelly doughnut onto his work papers while also attempting to catch some of it in his mouth. This is worthy of judgment.

Then a man hides under a table with his briefcase and an hors d’oeuvres tray. Is nothing sacred?

“Do I have something on my nose? Be honest.”

This is where things really start to get out of hand.

This man is literally walking around his office without pants on. He brought his guitar. And a soccer ball.

No man’s sneeze should have all that power.

We conclude with a man ruthlessly grinding on a paper shredder. Happy (almost) weekend.
