At the end of the day, what is, is. So laugh about it.
At least one good thing about working late on a Friday night: Usually the traffic is better because everyone already left early. The fine print: Some restrictions apply; the 405 will always have terrible traffic. (It will have terrible traffic even after all the humans die in the Zombie Apocalypse.) Also, some holiday weekends everyone leaves LA at the same time on Friday night and drives back late Sunday (or Monday) night.
