Today is Monday, the first and the least favourite day of the week, for me, for you, for everybody. It seems like”I hate Mondays”-thing has became global and almost every person hates Mondays by default. Why? Because ….because…. I can’t come up with anything in particular, but here is some information proving that the “I hate Mondays”-thing has been around the globe for many, many years:
- A number of songs feature Monday, often as a day of depression, anxiety, or melancholy. For example, “Monday, Monday” (1966) from the Mamas & the Papas, “Rainy Days and Mondays” (1971) from the Carpenters, “I Don’t Like Mondays” (1979) from the Boomtown Rats, and “Manic Monday” (1986) from the Bangles.
- In the Garfield comics and shows, the title character hates Mondays, and is frequently harmed during them.
- Monday is the most popular day to commit suicide, call in sick, and surf the web in the Netherlands.
- In the film Office Space (1999), character Nina says to Peter “sounds like someone’s got a case of the Mondays” suggesting Peter is not in a good mood.
Now, let’s view this from another perspective and imagine that Monday is a person and that person is you. Could you live with all that hatred?
So, whenever you feel like hating Monday just put yourself in his shoes. Everything you need to do is to look at things (sometimes Mondays) from another angle .
P.S. Have a great Monday!
