Another reason to be thankful that Office Space exists in this world: According to helmer Mike Judge (who is now working on the fabulous HBO series that you're probably not watching, Silicon Valley), the film is the main reason that T.G.I. Fridays let their employees stop wearing flair (and, thus, let them gain some actual flair). In a recent interview with Deadline, Judge explained.
"About four years after Office Space came out, T.G.I. Fridays got rid of all that (button) flair, because people would come in and make cracks about it," he said. "One of my ADs asked once at the restaurant why their flair was missing and they said they removed it because of that movie Office Space. So, maybe I made the world a better place."
You truly did, Mike Judge. You truly did.
