This is why we used to have the tradition to eat at the Greek restaurant for lunch on Fridays. There would be an Uozo as appetizer, and a Hefeweizen to go with a hearty meal.

Good times. Then the company moved.

People that schedule Friday afternoon meetings, especially in the summer, are assholes.

I'm particularly fond of those 5pm meetings on a Friday before a long weekend. Those are great!

4 day work week is the best. 6 hour days if it has to be 5 in a  row.

LOL, people, like the author of this article, need to be shot and buried out in the desert.

Especially this time of year in the Midwest when the weather's just getting good. Throw something on my schedule for Friday at 4 late in the week? I'll be there ready and upbeat but I secretly farking hate you.

The opposite of that is the person who sees the meeting's subject has been discussed/decided like 20-30min into its hour-long time and brings it to a firm, early close rather than letting the group dick around & meander for the full time. I like that person. A lot. I see you. Always be that guy.

Tips for staying productive?

When we're already like 300x as productive as we were when the 40-hour work week was won?

fark that. Send tips for finding the best mouse jigglers, etc. so I can spend my Friday earning a few hundred more trophies in this cell phone game.

My old company had a bar inside that we'd go to on Friday afternoon. Crack open beers and shoot the shiat.  The top bosses would stay for half an hour or so before returning to their offices so as not to make it awkward.  Sometimes it was just stupid conversations, but sometimes you'd have some griping about projects or issues for which another department could assist. People linked up with mentors.  Those collaborative relationships forged over beer on Friday would get put to use on Monday.

Even funnier, people were looking for ways to slink out ASAP on Friday before. Once they started doing to drink meets, people actually hung around longer. Great place to work.
