COLLEAGUES in a WhatsApp group have begun to hate one another with a burning passion.
Employees of PR firm Digital Viking set up the group to share jokes, stories and information, but the glimpse into one another’s lives has made them mortal enemies.
Brand analyst Donna Sheridan said: “At first, everyone was excited to be able to chat all the time, like we were all in a lovely virtual break room with emojis and Ryan Gosling reaction gifs.
“But then the in-jokes started, and the brunch photos.
“No-one responded for hours when I tried to organise a trip to the cinema, except my boss who made a passive-aggressive joke about my project deadline. I used to enjoy working there but now I want to burn the building down with everyone inside it.
“There’s a fucking inspirational quote for you.”
Content manager Tom Booker said: “I spend more time analysing the hidden meaning of WhatsApp comments than I spend doing my job. I thought it would be a modern-day MSN Messenger, like being back at school.
“Turns out it’s just backbiting, crap jokes and sexual frustration. Like being back at school.”
