We all know why Monday gets the bad rap, you’re tired from over sleeping and over staying up from the previous couple days and the six o’clock alarm come Monday morning is like taking a sheet of ice and placing it on your bare back. It stings.
However, I was thinking this morning as I was not at all wanting to get out of the bed and walk to my car at the start of the first day in Minnesota that feels like spring that I would like to like Mondays.
Tuesday through Thursday get a blah mark in most of our books. There may be a TV show you follow on one of those days and that will be the highlight of that day. Then comes Friday, and although this means work for those of us where “workday” is synonymous with “weekday”. Friday moods are always lighter. I mean, that’s why they are the days where you may wear jeans and all. Do “Casual Fridays” still exists? I have never worked a day in an office and I have no idea about the concept except for what I have heard. Moving on, the day is celebratory in that you will not have to work or wake up at any given time for two full days. This is very obvious in the restaurant industry as I have seen more people “treat” themselves to going out to lunch or by buying a latte on these days.
This pisses the socks off my feet. In theory, we are only allowed to fully enjoy 2 days a week and those remaining 5 are given away? Yes, enjoy is subjective as to what you enjoy.
And I like my job. Just not on Monday.
