National 4pm Finish Day Exists, So Maybe 2017 Isn't All Bad After All

National 4pm Finish Day Exists, So Maybe 2017 Isn't All Bad After All

Good news everybody: National 4pm Finish Day is a real thing and now is the time to start asking/telling/forewarning your boss.

Unless you've got a really sound boss and/or you don't give a fuck, it's pretty likely you work a few minutes past your official finishing time a few times a week.

It's no big deal at the time, a couple of minutes here and there, but these do all add up.


So a national day for everyone to down tools at 4pm on the dot seems like a bloody brilliant idea to me.

The new national day, which was thought up by Red Bull, is designed to make workers be more productive, so it's not just about the early dart. (But that's the most important bit, of course).


It's all about getting shit done early doors so you can clock out nice and early. But I'm not your boss, so if you're actually going to slack off all day and still finish at 4pm, then you'll find no judgement here.

The main thing is, you get out of there at 4pm.


This year, National 4pm Finish Day is today - Friday 15 September - so, as soon as the clock hits 4pm, log off/cash off/walk off stage/put down the clippers/I don't know what your job is. Ignore your boss shouting. Just carry on walking. Head down. Eyes on the prize. You're out.

And, obviously with it being a Friday, it's the perfect chance to walk out of work and stroll straight into the pub. You'll even be there in time for happy hour, for a change. Woohoo.


I mean, as a disclaimer, I would like to say, please don't blame me if you get sacked, obviously. Also, if you're a surgeon in the middle of an op, probably finish that first.
