Haha what the gently caress they sent it to your personal cell phone number? That's amazing. If they feel the need to take things to that level they should absolutely be issuing you a separate work phone.

gently caress that, it's your personal number so you can do whatever the gently caress you want.

if it's your personal number 1) they shouldn't do that gently caress them and 2) if they did send a message to it pretending to not be from work then you had every right to send goatse to it and gently caress them if they have a problem with it, it's none of their business

now that they know what goats really look like, send them those midjourney pictures that riff off of it but are sfw, like the ones where it looks like a giant gaping pink cavern or whatever and it continues to scar them because the mind cannot avoid seeing what, in its heart, it expects to see
