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. Auditors sure know how to have fun, don’t they?

We’ve spent the afternoon looking at various tweets celebrating auditors, and while many were snoozers, we actually learned some stuff today:

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

2. Being #AuditorProud allows you to attend more baseball games than client meetings.

3. Being #AuditorProud makes you pretend like you have a tattoo.
