A local office workforce has been told that going out on the town for September 11th anniversary drinks might be pushing it.
Employees at Bastard and Son were hoping to get a few pints in under their usual rule of finding an incredibly flimsy justification first.
“It’s mostly to placate our wives and/or girlfriends, or boyfriends, if we’re talking about Anthony, which I’d rather not, to be honest,” said Office Manager, Simon Booker.
“Last Friday we went out as it was the 71st anniversary of Finland breaking diplomatic contact with Nazi Germany; and about time too, the sods.”
“The week before that we got mortal because it was Steve’s 8 month work anniversary, and the week before that it was payday.”
“But apparently going out to get sloshed because it’s September 11th is ‘inappropriate’, according to the joyless bint in HR.”
“I don’t see the problem, it’s not like we’re dressing up in costumes or anything; although that would be a right laugh. I’d definitely bagsy the second aeroplane.”
It is thought that there will be an office knees-up next Friday, September 18th, to commemorate Chile’s declaration of independence from Spain in 1810.
“Wheyyyyyyy” said Williams.
