Should We Postpone Monday, Again?
The arm was heavy, but like an eager gymnast you lift it up towards the very loud alarm clock that sounds like a fire alert. As soon as you reach it the first thing you do is press the snooze button, again! Your one eye finally manages to break thought the glaring sunshine peering through your curtains. Yes, Captain Obvious, you have arrived, it's Monday!
It's always the most difficult morning of the week and weekly you always wake up wishing the weekend had one more day! You cross your fingers and toes and wishing Monday could be postponed; and with heat on your bum you can already tell you're late and you (again) have to get creative with a reason why you won't be coming into the office today.
Reality is there are some people that actually have a genuine legitimate reason for not checking into the office on a Monday morning. But Monday has been given a bad reputation by people like you that always have to get creative with their excuses that it becomes difficult for others to not come into the office.
Xolani Gwala read an email that inspired the conversation about Monday, hear it here..
Have you ever had to not go to work on a Monday, when you actually had a good reason for it? Did they buy your reason? On the flip side, what creative (read as "lies") reasons have you come up with to skip work on a Monday? Did the boss buy it?
