Today is a funny day here at the office. It’s a day of redemption. A day when we get to say “screw you corporate world”. Soon we will be getting an email from way up high on the corporate ladder that says:

Dear Employees,
Due to the upcoming holiday weekend, all offices will be closing Friday, September 4, 2009 at 2:00 pm. Please take the weekend to enjoy with your family and friends.

Or something to that effect. Everyone waits for it on the edge of their seats and when it comes, there is an uproar and a few people run around the office like they are a kid for the first time visiting Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory. They ask everybody if they got the email. Yes, our email inbox is working still and it was sent to “ALL Employees” so I did receive it. And then for the rest of today and the few hours we will be ‘working’ tomorrow the productivity will be nil.

Then at 2:00 pm sharp and not a second later we all look like this (I just wanted a reason to post this video yes):
