Do You Hate Mondays as Much as Garfield?

If you work Monday through Friday and live for the weekend, you've probably said "I hate Mondays" to yourself or a coworker more than once. You're in good company; many of us don't like Mondays. In fact, many folks hate Mondays.

  • Garfield hates Mondays.
  • Dilbert isn't too fond of Mondays.
  • Even sweet old Sponge Bob Square Pants hates Mondays.

If you really don't like Mondays, take heart and get it out of your system. Tell the world - Tweet about it, share this lens, grab some nifty I Hate Monday gear and gadgets and gifts.

The funny I Hate Monday gifts and goodies in this lens will help you survive yet another week that starts with a dreaded Monday. If nothing else, I Hate Monday tee shirts, stickers, mugs, buttons, posters and cards might help you and others smile as you think about working another 40 hour stretch to get to (yay!) Friday.

And just for the record, I used to hate Mondays but now I'm over all that.

Monday's Child is ... Fair of Face.

If you were born on Monday, you must have been a cutie

Mondays Child (author unknown)

Monday's child is fair of face,

Tuesday's child is full of grace,

Wednesday's child is full of woe,

Thursday's child has far to go,

Friday's child is loving and giving,

Saturday's child must work for a living,

But the child that's born on the Sabbath day,

Is fair and wise and good and gay.

Monday Morning Blues

The first great US Depression began Black Monday - October 28,1929 - when the stock market crashed for the first time.

A study by the UK Office of National Statistics reported that people are more likely to commit suicide on a Monday.

Monday - Moon Day, Day of the Moon

What's in a Name?

Ancient names for the week days derived in one form or another from the planets and the gods.

The name of Monday is derived from Old English Monandæg and Middle English Monenday, which means "moon day". In many other languages the translation is similar, referring to the moon in some manner, or to the day after Sunday. Wikipedia.

Biblical references consider three Mondays in the calendar year unlucky: the first Monday in April; the second Monday in August, and the last Monday in December. Thai Buddhism views Monday as a day of Making Peace.

When I was a working single mother (back in the days when most moms stayed at home and dads went to work) and I had to leave my girls with a sitter during the week, I dreaded Mondays. Things are different today, and there are many more convenient child care options available to working moms and dads.

      Yes, being able to make your own hours and work days as a self-employed or semi-retired person is definitely a boost to Monday approvals. Enjoy - I've been at this for more than a decade and I still love my freedom.

      Now that both hubby and I are home and semi retired I don't mind Mondays at all. No work, no school, just a nice hot cup of coffee waiting for me in the morning. Love it!

      Nowadays, I hate mondays. In jobs I loved, Mondays were great.

      One I'd deal with it is to end a Monday, once you get back home, by watching something funny. I compiled a list here
