It is said that more than 90% people of the world are suffering from depression of Monday morning also known as Monday Morning Syndrome. People hesitate to go TO workplace. Millions of work hours are lost.

Is it true?








AND TOMORROW IS MONDAY.

It's fortunate that Pebble-gatherers don't have to stick to a Mon-Fri schedule.

I am a lay-about.

A paraphrase of G.B.Shaw's statement: Why should exactly Monday be an exception?

Childhood passions

I get to

Get up early
Ride on a train
Talk to people
Meet my friends
Play with really cool toys
Be with the other kids
Solve problems
Try out all the new ideas I thought of last week
Learn new stuff
Help people

And get paid for it?

What's not to love Applause

Do TFDers find a period at the beginning of the sentence? That is a little example of Monday Morning Syndrome.

Still hats off, pebble gatherers are under no obligation whatsoever, except learning. Thanks a lot, Whatson dear.

Good Saturday morning, Mr. Joshi:

I have never understood why people dread Mondays.

They should be grateful for having a job to go to in these bad economic times.

Monday, to me, is an exciting day. The first working day of the week. (Even if I am retired.)

For some people, they cannot wait until the WEEKend is over.



In any case, I wish you a nice WEEKend and a great Monday!



P.S. If you get a chance, read the poem that Almo posted in the "Vocabulary" forum. It's posted in a thread entitled "How do YOU pronounce 'weekend'? "

Yes, I did. About WEAKend and WEEKend.

In my native school, my respected English teacher very solidly and brilliantly made us learn the difference between and WEEK and the WEAK.
Said, since the WEAK has one "e" so its weak, and the other which means 'seven days" has two 'EEs' so its not weak. Thanks my respected teacher. I could never forget till date.
Respectable teachers, I bow to thee for enabling me join this forum. And for instilling an endless infatuation for learning.

I agree with you, Mr. Joshi.

Almost all of the forums at this website have helped me so much to learn more things.


P.S. We members thank you for starting such interesting threads. (Very few members take the time and effort to start threads.)





You know who I am

Given that a high proportion of people in the world have Friday-Saturday off and work Sunday, so Monday is the second day of the week, I am very suspicious of the 'factoid'!

Unless 'Monday' is the idea, not the day. Whistle

Monday Mornings are really a huge stress factor for me. Before midday my attempts to work not always successful. I'm trying to get enough sleep the night before to feel not so bad.
