Okay, we have a task for you today. A thread on Twitter blew up not too long ago and it is seriously a lot of fun.

Here’s the assignment for you: come up with a horror story about your job in five words or less.

But before you write your own, you need to read through all of these first.

Here’s the question that was posed to folks on Twitter.

And here’s what they came up with.


1. A terrible idea!

Don’t do that!

2. Hot mics are never good.

You never know what they’ll pick up…

3. Don’t ignore them!

This goes for EVERYONE.

4. Ouch. That hurts.

Lawyers, this one’s for you.

5. You did what?!?!

Now what?

6. Oh, shit…

No writer wants to hear that.

7. Back to square one!

Somebody’s in trouble.

8. Teachers, does this sound familiar?

Over and over again.

9. Noooooo! This isn’t good.

For all the graphic designers out there.

10. Oh, boy…

This is gonna be quite a story.

11. None of that!

Some people really don’t want to hear this. Ever.

12. Really? Damn…

That doesn’t seem fair.

Now it’s your turn to get creative!

In the comments, tell us your job horror story in five words or less.

Let’s see what you can come up with!
