GREETINGS FROM CHIEF FUN IS REQUIRED;

I HAVE RETURNED FROM FUN-HAB TO SPREAD THE JOY AND EXPERIENCE OF FUN TO ALL. PLEASE DO NOT RESIST THE FUN. A NINTENDO SWITCH AND A BALL PIT HAVE BEEN INSTALLED. THERE WILL ALSO BE AN ICE CREAM MACHINE LATER ON. ALLOW JOY INTO YOUR HEART!!!!!!! FRIDAY IS A DAY FOR FUN, NOT WORK, SO NO WORK ALLOWED. I HAVE BEEN AUTHORIZED TO DUNK LESS THAN WILLING PARTICIPANTS INTO THE BALL PIT, IF NEEDED.


FAREWELL MESSAGE FROM CHIEF NO FUN:

JOY IS SUCH A FLEETING AND FRAGILE STATE OF BEING. I REALIZE NOW THAT MY DRACONIAN METHODS EMPLOYED TO SUPRESS,ELMINATE AND STEAL THAT WHICH HAS ELUDED ME WERE ULTIMATELY FRUITLESS. YOU CANNOT TRAP JOY IN A BOTTLE, OR SAY A BRIG, AND EXPECT TO UNDERSTAND IT, EXPERIENCE IT, OR KEEP THE FEELING FROM LEAVING YOU. IT MUST BE MADE, REFRESHED A NEW EACH WEEK. FRIDAY BRINGS JOY TO MANY, SO IT WAS THIS DAY, FRIDAY, THAT I FOCUSED ON TRYING TO CAPTURE THIS EMOTION. HOWEVER, NO BRIG CAN TRAP JOY, AND SO TO THAT END I AM OFF TO FUN-HAB. I MUST LEARN TO PRODUCE JOY FROM WITHIN, RANTHER THAN SIPHON IT OFF FROM OTHERS.

CHIEF OUT.


CHIEF NO FUN EDIT:

IT HAS COME TO MY ATTENTION THAT VARIOUS FUN-LOVERS HAVE DECIDED TO DEFILE THIS THREAD WITH "HAPPY FRIDAYS" and "FRIYAY", BUMPING THIS THREAD LONG PAST IS INTENDED LIFETIME. OFFENDERS WILL BE SENT TO THE BRIG FOR USING EITHER OF THOSE TERMS, USE OF BOTH WILL RESULT IN ONE MILLION YEARS DUNEGON.

BRIG HOURS ARE 8-5. COFFEE WILL BE SERVED, ALTHOUGH ITS PRETTY BAD COFFEE. NO DONUTS OR CRONUTS.

FRIDAYS ARE STILL SHIT AND IF I'M NOT HAVING FUN (I DON'T DO FUN) THEN NO ONE ELSE CAN HAVE FUN.

CHIEF OUT.

Please.

Just stop.

It isn't a holiday. It isn't a magic day of some kind.

Its Friday. We get 52 of them each year.

While we're at it, we can lose hump day too. Damn Gecico and their brain programming commercials for bringing it back.

Case of the Mondays? Monday isn't a bad day of the week after first 10 minutes and if you want to assert that Monday is worse than Tuesday than you've haven't done an honest assessment of your overall mood on the average Tuesday compared to Monday.

Haha, I really never heard this phrase until I started my current job.

It's just a innocuous, silly phrase. I'll say it back if someone says it to me. Personally, I always reference Rebecca Black on Fridays :)

I try to avoid this, but don't fault others for it

They're just trying to have a pleasant exchange

Old English Frīgedæg ‘day of Frigga,’ named after the Germanic goddess Frigga, wife of the supreme god Odin and goddess of married love; translation of late Latin Veneris dies ‘day of Venus,’ Frigga being equated with the Roman goddess of love, Venus. Compare with Dutch vrijdag and German Freitag.

Happy Friday

Am I still allowed to sing "It's the most wonderful time of the week" every Friday?

I say both Happy Friday! and Happy Monday! to my coworkers.

I am happy and want to spread the joy :)

I usually say "Happy (day of the week)," not just exclusively Friday.

Is that okay?

God I hate Happy Friday so fucking much.

Everyone running around in crisis mode because they suddenly realize that they won't be in the office the next two days.

Ugh.

Part of this is also because I used to work at a medium sized law firm for a couple of years helping lawyers deal with computers. Fridays were a barrel of laughs.

Is this an American thing, or a 9-5 thing? I'm a shift worker from the UK so I don't get any of this.

Nothing worse than people saying they are happy it's Friday. They aren't happy on other work days?
