I think I have finally reached my breaking point with the whole talking about what day it is thing. Holy crap! Like office chatter isn’t supremely irritating enough, especially if you are given to misanthropic tendencies. But this week is a special case because you see, it was the Fourth of July! How was your Fourth? What did you do for the Fourth? Barbecue this, rain that, I DON’T CARE! Not that I don’t care about people, per se, I love the people in my life with a fierceness, and I care about like, mankind, and whathaveyou, but…it’s not about the intentions, which are lovely, it’s about the “Groundhog’s Day” repetition day in and day out. I really don’t know how much longer I can take hearing the SAME EXACT things every single week!!!
How are you? Yeah, it’s Monday. Oh, it’s only Monday. The weekend just flew by! It sure did, and now here we are again, back to Monday.
Well, at least it’s not Monday. Tomorrow’s Wednesday!
Wow, it’s Wednesday, already? I thought it was Tuesday when I woke up. No, it’s already Wednesday. Happy Hump Day!
Can you believe its already Thursday? I know, the week flies by! I thought it was Friday when I woke up. No, it’s Thursday. Yay, tomorrow’s Friday!
TGIF! It’s Friday! Can you believe it’s Friday? The week sure went fast! Doesn’t it feel like it was just Monday? Oh, before you know it, it will be Monday again! HAHAHAHHAHA!
EVERY SINGLE WEEK, this goes on and on, and with absolutely no irony! That’s the worst part, I think. Like, it’s not FUNNY when people quote “Office Space” regarding cases of the Mondays, but it at least reflects a glimmer of awareness that maybe the person is aware that s/he is a walking parody of office life. But it’s like…MUST we? Really? Again? Because weeks like this — see, we had off Monday and Tuesday for the Fourth. Lovely. Fine. I’m very grateful. But then yesterday our ceiling fell down because of the rain, and so we got sent home at 11 a.m.
Now, I admit — it’s a freakin’ weird week! I’m out of sorts, discombobulated, deh deh deh deh deh ™Babz, but come on. All day long, people will not cut it out with:
It feels like Monday!
Well yesterday was Monday, today is Tuesday!
Yesterday SHOULD have been Monday!
Guys…get a grip. Today? Is Thursday. Tomorrow? Is Friday. I’m not kidding. Can we please move on to other things?
I’m sorry, I’m just cranky. It must be all this rain. Can you BELIEVE all the rain we’ve been having? Wow…
