Workers for the U.S. Department of Labor were sent out to celebrate the Labor Day holiday with messages on social media.
The messages were meant to be funny and lighthearted, but one worker posted that the messages were actually working.

The employee later said she had an “inappropriate amount of alcohol in my system” and that she was “shocked and disappointed” when she saw the messages.

A spokesman for the department told ABC News, “We have always taken our responsibility to our employees seriously.
We work with every department to ensure that every employee is treated fairly and with dignity.”
