Casual Friday lives on

Of course, it never really went away. People just stopped talking about it.

Meanwhile the march of 24/7 casual continued.

What should replace Casual Friday?

There was always one basic problem with the Casual Friday designation in Spokane.

It was redundant. In many workplaces, anyway. Most people here don't need a special invitation to dress in a relaxed manner.

Perhaps widespread recognition of that is one reason you don't hear much about it anymore.

Oh, sure. Maybe a few more people wear jeans on Fridays. But the whole thing seems to have lost its buzz.

So the question now is, what should take its place?

“Nothing” is certainly an answer worth considering. And there might be something to be said for I Don't Care How You Feel About the President Friday. But maybe that's too narrow.

How about Everybody Just Pipe Down and Do Your Work Friday?
