There's something horrible about Mondays! Today is a primary example of what can get on my nerves on a Monday. i) My phone notifications stopped working, I missed several WhatsAPP msgs from my Ma. So she now thinks am ignoring her. ii) I found out I had to resubmit my paperwork to revenue, as they don't have the "signature" form. iii) My last month's electricity bill was wrong. I got charged twice as much. iv) I got some completely random feedbacks from a colleague, and I literately had to bite my tongue or it could have turned nasty. Leave the battle another day! v) I had to break some depressing news to my cousin. I stopped myself from doing any more work, I have a feeling today is gonna be "one of those" days... better luck tomorrow. How is Monday going for you?

I can understand why you don't like Monday. I wouldn't either. As it stands it's not my favourite either.

Indeed, thank goodness my work is flexible enough, so I can just take today off.

@Drosophila I'm assuming it wasn't a bank holiday in your neck of the woods. I was in the park with Hugo and it was a lovely sunny day so it was a pretty good day for me.

Holiday here. So not like you're experiencing. I'm sorry. When it rains it pours. I'm relaxing, though I should be sorting. I will, just not this moment. Right now I'm interacting.

that's good to hear your day is going good. I have had some food to eat and feeling rather mellow now. I guess I should be glad. 1) at least I found out my notification isn't working, so it is working now. my Ma is all good. 2) at least all the revenue is after was just the signature form, not re-fills 3) my electricity bill is wrong, I can recover the amount, its not like I really just splurged 450USD worth of electricity. 4) at least now I know my colleague's stance on the project am leading.. easier to deal with now. 5) that bit of news suck still.. no good way to tell someone they didn't get the job.. .

That's a shame that Monday is turning out so bad for you. Those awful days hit all of us from time to time. I always used to wish I had stayed in bed.

I'm sorry to hear your Monday isn't starting off right. Hopefully there will be something better! But getting your vent off your chest helps a little right? My Monday just started, grabbed breakfast and now going home to eat it.

My week is usually so mixed up that Monday is not really Monday anymore-;), which is...well, good in a way...but also every day of the week has a kind of forboding sense haha, j/k.

I have always hated Mondays with my whole being since my childhood. Reason is simple that after rest on weekend, Mondays are only there to torture.

People normally hate Mondays because it's the start of the working week. This week we had a public holiday on Monday, so today (Tuesday) is the start of my working week, but I don't hate it because it'll be Wednesday tomorrow, which means halfway to the weekend. I can see you had a bad day, but that isn't exclusive to Mondays. I am not going to tempt fate by suggesting things will pick up. :p

@Drosophila Are you a magnet for bad luck? Every day is a good day for me. I'm alive! What more could I ask for? You need to touch wood more often, it works for me.

@Orson_Kart nope.. I get 1 bad day a month.. and it usually occurs either on a Monday or Wed/Thursday. I'm quite lucky on all fronts actually, it just that every now and then the scales need to balance... I can't have all the good gigs right

Its all about perspective....i personally love monday because its a start of new week and new possibilities....its all in your head, ppl usually hate mondays just because they need to go to school-work.

Good to hear you love Monday.. you can have mine. :D Well, new possibilities start nearly every day for me, including the weekend.. I certainly won't wait till Monday for it to happen But I agree with you, its a matter of perspectives, and I am feeling great today. But good to have a day where all my troubles happen at the same time, as opposed to spread out through the week and piss me off further. so for that.. Monday is quite good.
