7 Day Working Week of Death

No week should ever have three Mondays. But that’s exactly what this week has, and I’m writing this particular blog post on Monday v1.2 because it pisses me the hell off.

You see here, incredibly annoyingly, they utterly despise the thought of giving employees time off. So much so, in fact, that in order to give you 3 days holiday you have to make up for it by working Monday through Sunday the week prior to it. Next week we will be given Monday – Wednesday off as national holiday for Labour Day, but once you factor in that we’ll be working over the weekend this week then we only actually get one day off. Thus we have Monday, Monday v1.2 (Tuesday to you folks) and Monday v1.3 (Wednesday). It’s like Groundhog Day, but Bill Murray has been replaced by horrible, horrible reality. All this stupid switcha-bastard-roo does is change up the days we get off, enrage people like myself, and cause productivity to drop to the level of a depressed slug. I mean hell, who’s going to work their hardest on a bloody seven day week? As a lovely “fuck you too” I’ve decided I’m going to watch so many YouTube videos that I’ll know the words to all the adverts and will groove along with them at full volume in the office.

“L’Oreal X, contains the newly developed Bullshitonium to keep your hair the same as it was before, but at twice the cost.” *Swishes hair that definitely wasn’t maintained with Bullshitonium products*

This heinous crime against the working folk is government policy by the way – pretty much every company in the country is going to be doing this. Even my boss has been sleeping on her desk… how much more confirmation do you need that this is utter BS? None sir.

This guy knows what’s up

    I’m against Mondays, even if the week only has one of them, in general. What do we have to do to have that day abolished?
    Thanks for stopping by my blog, do stop by again…even if it’s Monday 🙂
