April 1, 2011 : Casual Friday

April 1, 2011 : Casual Friday, Picture 920x687

So what is it about Friday that makes it more casual than Monday or Wednesday?  Why are the other days of the week considered more formal? Am I supposed to be more serious on Monday and take my work/life less seriously on Friday?

And why the phrase “Thank God it’s Friday”? Most people I know seem just as busy on the weekend. They seem to spend their weekends doing household chores and errands – which in my book is just “home” work.  Some spend their weekend eating out in crowded chain restaurants with average service and average quality food.   Why would anyone be thankful for that?  Some spend the weekend staying up late watching TV or hanging out at bars then sleep in late on Sunday. Then Monday? That’s the day to complain about how tiring the weekend was.
