Imagine wearing this perfect new dress to an event or function, ready to grab some eyeballs and suddenly you find someone else has on the exact same dress! If you enjoy ‘twinning’ then YAY! But imagine if you don’t. And then imagine that a 100 times worse!
Twitter user Ilona Burton had one such twinning moment, but instead of another person, she was twinning with her office carpet!
When you come into work dressed as the carpet. I am MORTIFIED. pic.twitter.com/WIIivBslY2

It’s actually quite sporty of her to pose with the carpet like that, innit?
I know what you’re thinking though, because a lot of people on Twitter were thinking it too. And they asked her the question. Like a lot.
Was it yer first day ?

Babe, you telling me you never noticed the carpet in your office before? Like seriously?
Is it your first day at work in that office? Only ask as you'd have known the floor was like that surely?

Well, to answer your question….
Does anyone really pay that much attention to the carpet in their work place? I sincerely hope not.

Now when you think about it, may be not. There were a couple of ugly arguments about this topic, but we don’t want that kinda negativity in our life right now, okay?
What we are gonna do is focus on the positive things, like the many ways in which people tried to make her feel better about matching with a carpet.
Because Twitter is not always dark and full of
terrors trolls, but has a fair amount of happy, supportive peeps too!
They started off by making the obvious camouflage jokes. Because of course.
This is how she camouflages’ when her boss walks in. https://t.co/nosSGyQbyi

Ah see! Silver lining!
Giggling. This could come in handy, .@ilonacatherine
if you are a klutz like me, and you trip and fall! 😊 You wouldn't need to worry about being embarrassed; you've blended in perfectly with the carpet! https://t.co/pdKM3kkQ0J

But my favourite part was the tweets Ilona received from other women who had had similar encounters!
Basically a whole lot of “You’re not alone” vibes!
Someone matched with the bar floor… which I think always helps if you get too sloshed and drop to the floor!

One kind soul even dug up an old tweet about her ‘twinning’ moment!

This one matched with a wallpaper and it was okay!
Ah, yes, I have been here, but as an Air BnB’s wallpaper. pic.twitter.com/FBqEfeSBY1

What a colourful coincidence!
I feel your pain 😂! Always good to blend in with the furnishings 🙈 pic.twitter.com/bkK38PwQq2

Imagine twinning with a shower curtain!
This is surprisingly very relatable pic.twitter.com/SF6cxt5j8e

I think, we’ve all been here, done that, with the checkered table cloth clothing faux pas!

This is some next level twinning!

Twitter being all supportive just warms the cockles of my heart!
