Monday’s are tough…for a lot of people.
After a nice, couple of weekend days off, it’s back to the grind…whatever that grind may be.
And not too many people are happy about it.
All they see is five looooong days ahead, until they get to the next weekend.
Of course, there are some folks who actually love their work, or at least the new Keurig single cup office coffee maker that was just installed…so those people don’t mind Monday.
Even someone like me, who works from home, on his own schedule, is not all that crazy about Monday.
And it really shouldn’t bother me, since to a freelancer, one day is just the same as any other…Saturday and Sunday included. I’ve even worked on big holidays like Christmas and Flag Day…makes no difference. If I have a deadline to meet, working on a weekend or a holiday is actually beneficial, since the sooner I get the thing done, the faster I can get back to my desultory ways.
But for some reason, Monday is a different animal, even for the un-scheduled.
For one…listening to all that whining from everyone else, who actually have to leave the house, is draining.
Second…it’s nice to interact on the weekends with other intelligent human beings in the neighborhood.
When Monday comes, it’s hard to go back to interacting with the unintelligent human beings that seem to habitat the neighborhood, the rest of the week…
At least that’s what my neighbor tells me.
Hey, what'd you expect...it's a Monday.
