Monday, Monday

I keep trying to change, but I'm not a big fan of Mondays! The only thing worse than Mondays are the weeks that start with Tuesdays. You know, the weeks where Monday is a holiday--MLK Day, President's Day, and such. Please don't get me wrong about the holidays. No, I love the day off. Well, at least I usually take the day off--one advantage of being self-employed. However, if I don't work, I don't make money, and I've learned over the years that creditors generally want money for the rent, the lights, and so on.

This is the THIRD time I started this Blog, and by the time I finish, it won't even be Monday anymore. People will think I'm crazy ranting on and on about a day that isn't anymore. Okay, so people think I'm crazy already, but I'm not. We took a vote on it, and the voices and I agree, I'm just fine. What? What was that? You weren't voting on me? Great--now I can't even get the voices on my side. See why Mondays are so bad? (And just in case you couldn't tell, that was sarcasm--I don't really hear voices. Well, not often anyway! )

Why is it that just about everything that could go wrong goes wrong on Monday? (Except for plumbing problems--those always happen on the weekend when the shop is closed. But I digress.) Is there a Murphy's Law about Mondays that I somehow missed?

Monday morning traffic is almost as bad as Friday afternoon traffic. What is lacking in cars on the road is more than made up for by the attitude of the drivers--they're on their way to work, which they feel justifies their lousy attitude. At least on Friday afternoon people are heading home, or going on a date, or even getting away for the weekend, so they usually have a better attitude.

Once you finally get to the office, you learn the coffee pot was left on over the weekend. The glass caraffe cracked when water was added, so there is no coffee today, the day you need it most.

Next, you learn the copy machine is on the fritz, and you need to make a bazillion copies before yor first client arrives. Okay, onto Plan B, which will magically come to you now that your back is against the wall.

If your day is anything like mine, it just keeps going down hill from there. But it finally dawns on you--whining is not changing a thing. You have choice: continue to complain therefore making those around you uncomfortable at the least, but more likely, downright annoyed.

Get over it! Deal with it! Move on already! One-seventh of your life will be lived on Mondays. Don't bring me down through your whining, okay? Life's too short to get hung up on a day, just because of it's name.

Today's thought to stick to the roof of your mind.

I must least with your last statements. Life is too short...and we DO tend to make mondays worse because of our own attitudes. Just as you said...even the traffic is affected by the drivers lousy attitude. I guess we all need an attitude check on Mondays especially! Have a great tuesday Julz!

If you don't like Mondays, that is your choice.

Perhaps if you slept all day each Monday, you would be more satisfied.

    Quoting reverend21:

Thank you so very much for the roses, Ash. They're beautiful, and smell wonderful, at least in my imagination! You're right--something very nice DID happen on a Monday. Bless you.

If it's any consolation, the three people I hired most recently to adress growth in our company all decided to NOT show up the same day...yesterday...Monday...LOL

But at the end of the becomes Tuesday, and there's more unexpected challenges...but it's tuesday so its A-OK...LOL

And I'm pulling for the reverend21's blessing to come true for you too.

"do you think if you ever came into work and said you weren't feelin' too good someo asshole would say you have a case of the MONdays??"

"No...SHIT NO MAN! I reckon you'd get your ass kicked for saying something like that Peterman..."

so true, so true, it could be a jazillion reasons why Mondays suck, first damn day back to work after a fun weekend of sun, swimming, and being sucked off lol

or more likely, Mondays are derived from MOONday, which every edumacated person knows means bare-assing someone unexxxpectdly, which is what the day was originally named for by our so-called vikonormanpagan ancestors...they bare-assed Odin and Thor on MOONday... and well the gods take their sweet sweet revenge for such insolence by raining down a tractor trailer full of shit on us...much more than any other day of the week...where we pay our respects!

so now you know...and knowing is half the battle

Oh yeah, and I wouldn't worry about the voices...just call them your "entorauge of invisible friends" and everyone will think you're super duper coool...cuz it's in to have an entourage darling!

oh btw...I left personal notes abut your four things/ my black knight post....peruse, peruse

I live by the rule there are four Monday's and a Friday. On Tuesday morning I know there are three more Monday's until my Friday. And, on Wed. two Monday's and a Friday and so forth... Until the weekend! On Sunday night... It simply starts starts over and repeats itself! And, here it is Saturday morning and I'm preparing to head to the office... Now, that's &%#@'d up!
