Friday in the American office

Smiles, casual clothing, greetings of “Happy Friday!”, discussions of forthcoming weekend activities, elevator conversations about how this sure is nice that it’s Friday…

Depression, pathos, and futility ooze from all of it. One day in the working five is half-dedicated to the idea that the next two aren’t spent in a fluorescent call center or an airless cubicle.

Have a great weekend, everyone!

    1. This is a pretty good office as they go, and my job is fine. Part of the despair is remembering far worse offices and how pathetic the Friday joy could be.
