Friday in the American office [Aug. 14th, 2009|02:27 pm]

Smiles, casual clothing, greetings of "Happy Friday!", discussions of forthcoming weekend activities, elevator conversations about how this sure is nice that it's Friday...

Depression, pathos, and futility ooze from all of it. One day in the working five is half-dedicated to the idea that the next two aren't spent in a fluorescent call center or an airless cubicle.

Have a great weekend, everyone!

This is a pretty good office as they go, and my job is fine. Part of the despair is remembering far worse offices and how pathetic the Friday joy could be.

I was just thinking that I can measure out my life in key strokes and mouse clicks.

I started early in life, so I've been keyboarding since 1977. Total keystroke number must be huge.

I like to think you started keyboarding the very day I was born.
