Let me ask you something. When you come in on Monday and you’re not feeling real well, does anyone ever say to you, “Sounds like someone has a case of the Mondays?” ~ Peter Gibbons, Office Space
Remember that scene? Ahhh… It’s one of my favorites from that movie. It
was is a strange little movie, but there are so many scenes that just crack me up. That was one of them.
So what is it about Mondays? Is it really just the end of the weekend that makes us dislike them so?
During the summer months, my husband usually takes advantage of flextime at work, doing four ten-hour days. For several years, he took Fridays off, but for the last few years, he has taken Mondays off instead. His logic? Fridays off were good, but Mondays off were priceless! Skipping them at work made his weeks so much happier than when he took Fridays off. All the Monday-problems were solved by the time he got there on Tuesday mornings. Smart man!
What about you? You ever get a case of the Mondays?
More importantly, any tricks to survive gray winter Mondays?
Maybe I’ll go watch Office Space……..
