So Mad Men-ish
I am obsessed lately with Mad Men. It got me thinking that my job used to be somewhat in that vein. No, no inter-office hanky panky took place, but Fridays, oh, Fridays. There was a time that on Fridays, my boss would buy us lunch...and cocktails. We would order out, and whoever went to pick up lunch also stopped to pick up a few gallons of daiquiris. Yummy. Then, there was a grocery run. Snacks, sandwich makings and a varied amount of beer and sodas all put into ice chests awaiting evening. When quitting time rolled around, the crews coming in from the field got to have a good time. We office people stayed and indulged too, or sometimes we got to start a little earlier on that lot, lol. Ahh, the good ol' days. Many offices there still are inclined to be that way.
