Foursquare has decided to help give your profile a little more flair for those of you stuck in the mundane corporate world by letting you earn something a whole heckuva lot cooler than a papercut…the new 9 to 5 Office Badge! Earning this one should be pretty easy for those that regularly visit an office environment. All you need to do is check-in a office category venue at least once a day for 15 out of the last 30 days and you will earn yourself this clerical badge of glory.
The best part (to me at least) about this badge is the heavy focus on one of my favorite comedies of all time: Office Space. The badge itself has an image of a red stapler that we can assume is the Swingline model that Milton Waddums loves so dearly in the film. The badge unlock text contains 3 different Office Space references and reads:
Looks like someone’s filed 15 TPS reports in 30 days. Ummm… Yeeaahh… we’re gonna need to go ahead and move you downstairs into Storage B.
What are some of your favorite quotes from the film? Here are a few of mine:
Milton Waddams: Excuse me? Excuse me, senor? May I speak to you please? I asked for a mai tai, and they brought me a pina colada, and I said no salt, NO salt for the margarita, but it had salt on it, big grains of salt, floating in the glass…
Bob Slydell: I’ll be honest with you, I love his music. I do. I’m a Michael Bolton fan. For my money, I don’t know if it gets any better than when he sings “When a Man Loves a Woman”.
Bob Porter: Looks like you’ve been missing a lot of work lately.
Peter Gibbons: I wouldn’t say I’ve been *missing* it, Bob.
Milton Waddams: The ratio of people to cake is too big.
Samir: No, not again. I… why does it say paper jam when there is no paper jam? I swear to God, one of these days, I just kick this piece of s#%t out the window.
Michael Bolton: You and me both, man. That thing is lucky I’m not armed.
