Yesterday, we wondered why we bother sticking around on Friday afternoons, given that it seems that half our audience is already comfortably on the Jitney right around the time we start posting things that inspire comments like "slow news day guys?" Anyway! That post inspired an avalanche of emails of yet more companies that bid farewell to their employees before the week is officially over. Of course, some companies require intricate make-up hours that frankly leave our heads spinning. Either give the time off or don't! If there are yet more companies that give summer Fridays, please let us know, but also understand that the list is preparing us to sneak out around, say, 10 a.m. at the end of this week. See you at the beach! Slags.
