One last reminder of tomorrow’s all day game watch party at ATown in Arlington. Metro via the Ballston stop. Street parking everywhere. $5 25 ounce beers and a full food menu.
If you’re on the fence about “working” or drinking, let’s just consider a few things. First of all, you’re not going to do shit at work anyway. It’s the best Friday of the year and you have brackets to sweat. You are going to be spending your day refreshing box scores, reading Barstool, and staring at the clock.
I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again:
I worked in the cubes, once upon a time. I spent all day reading Barstool. I wasn’t fired. They simply don’t care enough about you to fire you. Yes, it’s awkward to call out sick, and yes, they’ll probably know you’re not sick. But there’s not shit they can do about it. You are given sick days for a reason. Use them. Tomorrow is one of those days you say “fuck it, I’m calling out.” I think as the kids say, you have to YOLO. When you look back in 5 years, are you going to want to remember being on a conference call with fat Nancy in accounting, or at a bar going ape shit? Just think about that. Unless you’re a doctor or brain surgeon or astronaut, you need to be at ATown.
Bring your friends and have yourself a day. Hope to see you all there.
