Date: Fri, 17 Nov 1995 12:41:11 -0600 From: "Kathleen M. O'Neill" Subject: POETS day Here's a very serious question for the group: I dated an Englishman for about two years, who said that in his old workplace in Sheffield, they used to call Friday "POETS" day, as an abbreviation for "Piss Off Early, Tomorrow's Saturday." Is this more widespread than I've assumed? Do others among you know (or even use) this expression?
