Office Power Moves


I was watching an episode of The Office where Deangelo Vickers (Will Ferrel) is taking over Michael Scott’s job as Regional Manager.


In this episode, Deangelo gets a barber to give him a hot shave in his office. Someone comments about it being a great power move.


Bonus question for the comments: Have you ever witnessed or executed a ‘power move’ in your office? What was it? What happened?

How would you feel if your boss tried to pull this off?

I would be weirded out if I saw anyone grooming themselves/getting groomed in the office. Don't you have a bathroom at home bro?

I mean I've had to touch up before hitting happy hour before, but nothing to that extreme 😆

I got a haircut in my office a long time ago. But usually I went to go see my barber, he just happened to be in the area giving another client a cut and I was short on time for a bit. But I did it after 4, so almost nobody was there anymore.

Where's those shitty leader vs boss memes. That's the differentiation here.

We've had a masseuse in the office, shoulders and head only, and we had a shoe shine guy come in. 

Some friends at investments banks have barbers in them and vending machines with razors etc in them.

Yeah, i used to work somewhere where they would occasionally bring in massage therapists for the day. Very nice little perk. Definitely not a douchey flex.

The part about investment banks is pretty interesting. Didn’t know that.

Call me what you want, just sign the damn contract
This is just a more sophisticated method of clipping your nails in the office. It's fucking gross and a fucking no.

Old company used to bring in barbers for the men (and women?) to get their hair done, thought it was weird
