AN overeager office worker is treating Friday as if it is a normal working day and toiling away accordingly.
Carolyn Ryan has left colleagues confused by enthusiastically sending emails and attending meetings, even though it is a Friday so she could get away with doing f**k all.
Co-worker Helen Archer said: “I had to check I hadn’t lost track of the days when I saw Carolyn cracking on with her sales report for Q3. Everyone knows Friday is technically part of Saturday.
“She was the first person back in the office after lockdown so I guess I shouldn’t be surprised. It was the ultimate mega-doss and she couldn’t even get behind that.
“Doesn’t she know that there’s still a tacit agreement between bosses and workers that we can spend Fridays pissing about? There has to be something that makes coming to work worthwhile.”
Boss Emma Bradford said: “I miss the days when you could go for a two hour lunch on a Friday and neck three pints with nobody batting an eyelid. Now I have to make do with slyly sipping a can of Malibu and coke while I eat my sandwich.
“The received wisdom is that alcohol and work don’t mix. Unless you drive a combine harvester, that’s wrong.”
