Twins Day 2017

On March 1, 2006, something incredible happened.

My coworkers and I were enjoying lunch together in the meeting room of my first “real” job. Halfway through my sandwich, I looked over at my coworker, Tracy, and realized that she and I were wearing similar outfits.

“Hey, we match,” I told her.

Another coworker piped up. “Yeah, I was telling Alan earlier that we match too.”

Two other coworkers looked at each other and realized the same thing. Then two others.

Incredibly, four pairs of people had independently and accidentally dressed almost identically to one another. Really. This is not a joke. This was completely unplanned.

We knew that no one would believe the story, so we took a photo to commemorate the occasion.

At my next job, I continued the Twins Day traditional in several variations. Now it’s just me working at home, but I have my weekly meeting with my co-founder on Wednesday, so we’ll see if we happen to match.

Have you ever worn nearly the exact outfit as a coworker?

  1. Jamey,

    It happened one time in which my colleague and I from the Bureau were briefing at an event and we were asked to dress business casual…of course, he and I both showed-up with a chambray shirt, khakis, and blue blazer…it was the federal version of the Blues Brothers.


  2. I had a premonition about this. On my walk in to my office from my car, I randomly thought, “I know Jamey posts about Twins Day each year. I wonder when that is. It’s been a while, so it must be coming up soon.” Low and behold, it’s today! Happy twins day, former Kolamites/SPIers/everyone!

    • Well done, Trev! Honestly, I only remember the date when it pops up on my calendar. But it’s a good day to remember!
