This is the phrase that is becoming more and more common as people leave work for holiday weekends, primarily those that involve drinking alcohol and/or explosives. I’ve heard this phrase a lot today as people sneak out early for the 4th of July weekend. We get both Monday and Tuesday off for the holiday.

Holidays that this phrase usually applies to:

  • New Year’s Eve – drinking and driving is bad
  • Memorial Day – first road trip of the summer! Time to drink!
  • 4th of July beer and explosives – a scary combination
  • Labor Day – last chance to drink a lot and have a barbeque before school starts up again
  • Halloween – watch out for cars when you’re running around drunk in your costume.
