image for Baltimore Does Away With "Casual Friday"
Many Baltimore office workers are upset with the elimination of 'Casual Friday.'

BALTIMORE - Reports coming out of the Maryland city that is famous for its orioles have a lot of office workers quite upset and literally fit to be tied.

The city council has decided to do away with the age old tradition of Casual Friday, in which office workers were allowed to go into work dressed in casual clothes such as jeans, sweatpants, or Daisy Duke shorts.

A spokesperson for the mayor's office, Libby Prenderwick, 29, informed the news media that the city council had put a lot of thought into the matter and decided that it would be in the best interest of the city's businesses to eliminate the Casual Friday Policy.

Miss Prenderwick, who is recently divorced, remarked that the reason for the change was due to the fact that just in the past six months, a percentage of employees were really getting so carried away with the Casual Friday policy that many were simply just not bothering to show up for work.

The mayor was informed of this development, while on vacation down in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, and he immediately stated that if the city council voted to do away with Casual Friday that it would be perfectly fine with him.

SIDENOTE: The mayor did stress that he did not want anyone to fool with the long established business offices tradition of Enchiladas Wednesday.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
