Watch a Three Stooges marathon

Without a doubt, you can't dissect the science of slapping without the Three Stooges. It is reported that Moe slapped Larry so much that one side of Larry's face felt like leather. (You definitely have to build up to that much slapping.) So, after you survive yet another day of torture with that most obnoxious of coworkers who sits two cubes over, enjoy back-to-back episodes of one of the funniest trios in film.

Perfect your slapping technique

Before you go into work, make sure you are ready to administer the most effective slap possible. You have, in fact, been flexing your hand muscles regularly in anticipation and the day has finally arrived.

Train others on how to give a good slap

Since it's National Slap Your Annoying Coworker Day, don't keep all the fun to yourself. Spread the joy around. During the next break, train a group of your favorite coworkers on all the possible slapping scenarios.

5 Things To Say Just Before Slapping Somebody

​1. "You're taking WHO?!"​

What a jilted prom date says to his/her (former) girlfriend/boyfriend

2."You bought her a HOUSE?!"

Generally said to a cheating spouse.

3."​I was just trying it out!"

Preferably said after you crash your girlfriend's car.


What countless women have said to Groucho in countless Marx Brothers films

5."What do the five fingers say to the face?"


Why We Love Slap Your Annoying Coworker Day

It's a day for revenge!

The French have a saying that "revenge is a dish best served cold." Basically, that's a stylish way of saying that when you want revenge, the longer you wait — the more impact you will have on your unsuspecting target.

It has rules

As much as we love National Slap Your Coworker Day, you have to keep in mind that there are still rules for these one-sided fisticuffs. The rules dictate that you can only slap one person each hour but you can slap them once for each offense. If your supervisor tries to intervene, you can slap him/her, too — just bear in mind there may be consequences.

Not everybody gets slapped

As much as we adore the idea of National Slap Your Annoying Coworker Day, we would be remiss if we didn't remind everybody to exercise caution when celebrating this day. You should not use this as an excuse to go slapping anyone you don't like. Remember the spirit of the day and keep it to coworkers.
