Why you should come in to work on Mondays…

9 Nov

4 reasons I could come up with for coming in to work this monday…


1. Impress your boss

You can impress your manager/supervisor that you are the type of person who never gets frustrated on Mondays, and is always the cheery old self, who never understands the concept of Monday morning blues (MMBs). You can act out to be very interested in work, get your card swiped in as early as possible and somehow make others aware of it, particularly your seniors and supervisors by any number of ways you can think about. Even a good morning mail sent out at 8 AM will do the trick. Hopefully, your acts will eventually become realities. (If only wishes had wings and hopes had brooms on which you can fly!!!)

2. Drink caffeine

You can have umpteen numbers of coffees/teas from the organization’s pantry and blame it on the MMBs. If someone notices that this is probably your second or even third break since morning, you don’t have to start feeling guilty or apologetic if it is a Monday. Instead you can blame it on this being a typical Monday and you can actually do it on every Mondays and get a kick out of it.

3. Act Sleepy, bored and nonchalant and get away with it.

You could be forgiven or atleast ignored if you have a sleepy face on a Monday morning. (Disclaimer: I am not to be held responsible if you are going to try this in the presence of a snobbish supervisor.)

You could have one too many rendezvous at the lobby or in the lounge area and keep reading mags (hopefully if it is technical one like the PC mag if you are in the IT industry, or the Wall Street Journal if you are in that industry, the better ) and blame it on the day being Monday. This day is a day when you would actually be let off with not really much thought to it. Come on, your superiors could also have MMBs, they are humans after all. (Please remind yourself of my disclaimer.)

4. Enjoy it!!!

Lastly, what cannot be cured should be endured and what needs to be endured, better be enjoyed. Yeah, this is the only possible solution, I believe. Start enjoying the work you do, start enjoying the work place, your colleagues, try to instill a joy and zest at the place where you spend the better part of the sunny day. Think of ways by which you can truly discover the sheer pleasures of work, be it Mondays or Tuesdays or Wed… right through Fridays.

 On a side Note: I work in the Software(IT) Industry and one of my colleagues, Ramprakash wishes and hopes to inject a defect in the for loop of the Universe which executes the days of the week. A quite simple straight forward defect which causes Saturdays to also come after Sundays and then, well, the week can take its course 😉 Know what he means ??? !!! lol… Like I usually say, if only hopes had a broom which you could mount and fly away to what you hope for!!! 🙂

I should say I have such bright colleagues… And sometimes it rubs off on me too 🙂

    Hello Madam,

    Being a software developer i wish you inject the defect and me, a validation guy, instead instead of finding the defect would enjoy the defect…..

    LOL! I like the ‘for’ loop idea and look forward to it. Ramprakash, please go ahead and implement it! The world will bless you:-)

      Sure. With all your support and the “blessings” will do it…

    See, every1 likes your idea. Maybe you could even be nominated for the noble peace prize for making everyone happy 🙂

      Nobel prize! Wow! Looks a bit exaggerated. But if a person like you decides this way, then I feel I deserve it 😀
