On Friday, one of our major suppliers treated a few of us to a Boardroom lunch. It was very stylishly done, with good conversation about a mix of business and personal topics. Amusingly, as we were leaving, our host commented that it was a shame it was on a Friday. “We usually wear casual clothes on a Friday, so it was a bit of a nuisance to put the tie on.” Ironically, our office has dress down Friday also, so we had all dressed up just for each other.
Next time, maybe we’ll know each other well enough to go casual.
