According to Rock Paper Shotgun, one workplace has stopped using all of these other apps to brainstorm out in the wild west.

Not gonna lie, this just sounds like a big excuse to play video games and I’m so widdit.

According to employee Viviane Schwarz, the best part is after the meeting when everyone dips out on their horses to be an outlaw.

But wait, when is anyone doing work now?

I mean, would you rather go out and hunt a legendary animal or talk about some decks or calendars and bullshit? It’s a no-brainer.
