For many of my coworkers, today is their Friday. These people are using vacation days to get an extra long weekend that includes the Thanksgiving holiday.
I’ve decided to come to work on Friday. It’s one of my favorite days to be here since most people are gone. I’m not interested in Black Friday sales, so I don’t feel like I’m missing out. Traffic is light on the commute (on a drive that is already relatively easy), I have my choice of parking spot, and I can dig into projects with few interruptions. I’m not distracted with small talk. I don’t get many phone calls because most people assume the office is closed. Best of all, if I sneak out a little early, no one is the wiser.
So today is not my Friday but it’s still better than a typical Wednesday.
