Office observations on a quiet Friday

From now until Labor Day, our offices close at 1:00 on Friday. The atmosphere on these short days is very different from the rest of the week.

1) Everyone is more casual. For example, I'm wearing a Beatles t-shirt and my favorite AE is wearing a faux polo shirt emblazoned with a previous client's logo. I didn't realize how much sloppier we all are on Fridays until I caught sight of our intern ... in a beige business suit. They're so cute when they're young and ambitious, aren't they?

2) Short days go oh-so-slow! Why is that? I'm sooooo freaking bored.

  1. I think it's because it's such a short day that there's this mentality that there's no point working on a bigger project...so you guys are probably just finishing up mundane chores and finishing up loose ends that are probably kind of boring.

  2. I've been a whirling dervish the past couple of days--trying to organize and clean up my classroom for vacation! Thankfully, I finished yesterday and could leave when the kids left today!

  3. Your Beatles t-shirt can no longer be considered casual...not with a member of royalty in the crew.

Sorry about adding Comment Moderation, folks. But look at the bright side, at least I've gotten rid of word verification!
