According to some folks at work, I have a 3pm Friday rant. This has only happened for the past two weeks so I wouldn’t exactly call it a well-established pattern of behaviour. But it does seem like Friday at 3pm is when the activities of the week have more or less settled down and I have a few minutes to share my thoughts about what I think are ridiculous processes, behaviours, and situations at work. Should this 3pm Friday Rant happen again next week, I’m going to try to pre-text it with, “Now, I don’t want to get off on a rant here, but…” (Dennis Miller, I’ll send you a dollar). At least people will either know what they’re about to get into or can flee the scene.
