Guess what? It's Friday. That means around 4 PM you should expect a visit from Enormously Large Evelyn, the Records Receptionist in HR, and she's going to invite you to join the rest of the team at Yeasty's! for happy hour. Run to the bathroom? She'll only leave a post-it on your monitor. The best way to say no is to cut the invite off at the knees. When Evelyn peeks over your cubicle wall, make sure she sees a coworker sending an anguished peel of sobs into the phone. You might have to cry into an empty receiver until 5:30, but no one will ask if you're okay until Monday.
Happy Openly Weep To Avoid Invites To Happy Hour Day!
