Lighter side: The secret confessions of office workers
If you could make anonymous confessions about your working day, what would you say? A new app called Secret lets people post just such confessions, with hilarious results.

The Muse has collated a list of some of the best office confessions – here are a few of our favourites.

  1. Wearing Gryffindor socks to this job interview. – California
 
  1. 10 of the most important people in my work/play life share at least one name. I’m terrified I’m going to email the wrong one. – New York
