Worker says she “felt throw up” after showing porn on work chat

Commenters lost it after a woman said she accidentally entered her workgroup chat with a graphic pornographic image as her profile picture.

The anonymous woman, known as u/chumbucketbaby, wrote about the incident on Reddit’s “TIFU” forum, where she received more than 40,000 upvotes and 2,200 comments from users.

According to Gergo Vari, CEO and founder of a recruitment service called Lensa, companies and organizations that focus on a strong culture of friendly interactions see less turnover with new employees.

However, it is important to maintain a balance between work and social life to avoid reduced productivity and to ensure employees respect each other’s boundaries.

In the post, titled “TIFU by joining my workgroup chat and wanting to throw up now,” the 25-year-old woman said she was recently added to a workgroup chat on WhatsApp with her peers in their 40s and 50s.

On the same day, one of her colleagues came to her and asked if she knew her WhatsApp profile picture.

“I had to check because I haven’t been on WhatsApp for a while. So I open WhatsApp to check my picture and felt like throwing up,” the post reads. “The image is a very detailed and pornographic image of Iron Man and Captain America having sex.”

She explained that she originally saw the picture on Twitter and showed it to her friends because she thought it was funny. One of her friends bet she wouldn’t set it as her profile picture and she decided to put it on WhatsApp because she never used the app but then forgot.

When she saw the picture, she immediately changed her profile picture to the “most professional” one she could find. She said that when she panicked, a normally friendly colleague walked by and avoided eye contact.

“My boss saw this picture, all my co-workers saw this picture, I feel like I drew these elderly for life,” the post reads. “Tomorrow I have to go back to work and I don’t know what to expect or what to do.”

More than 2,200 users commented on the post, many made jokes about the situation and others offered support.

“I’m sorry, but this is hilarious. I don’t know, just tell them that you put it on your picture as a joke a long time ago and completely forgot about it, and that you’re sure they’ve seen worse pictures on the internet.”

“Trust me, you didn’t scare any of us,” said one user. “Pornography has been around since the beginning of time; we’ve all seen it.”

“Bet you won’t set this as your LinkedIn profile!” joked one user and received more than 26,000 upvotes.

“Go to work dressed as Captain America,” suggested another user.
