10 Things We Learned During #AuditorProud Day 2019

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you know that today is the fifth annual auditor lovefest known as #AuditorProud Day. There have been a lot of photos and videos posted on social media today of auditors holding balloons, wearing foam fingers, forcing awkward smiles, striking unnatural poses, and eating food of all kinds.

1. Being #AuditorProud makes you talk like a buzzword bot.

4. Being #AuditorProud means wearing cowboy hats.

5. Being #AuditorProud means feigning interest in accounting standards.

6. Being #AuditorProud means always keeping your hands clean.

10. Being #AuditorProud means thanking your firm’s auditors in the same boilerplate tweet as your predecessor’s.
