I can think of a few things that are worse than Monday mornings. Getting attacked by a swarm of angry bees, for instance. Losing your wallet. Being stuck on a three-hour flight with eight screaming babies who just won't quit. Discovering that the deli guy messed up your hangover order and smothered your cinnamon raisin bagel with veggie cream cheese instead of plain. But as miserable as all that may seem, chances are these sorts of things don't happen to you every single week. Mondays do.
Monday mornings have gotten a pretty bad rap, and understandably so. There's really nothing fun about rolling out of bed at 6:30 a.m. to get up and go to work after you've spent the last two days in a blissful weekend haze full of Netflix, Netflix, and more Netflix. You have to put on actual clothes. You have to push and shove and elbow your way through hordes of commuters just as angry about Monday as you are. And then, to top it all off, you have to face the prospect of repeating this routine over and over again every morning for the next four days until the weekend finally rolls around again. Nope, Monday mornings aren't fun — but they're a fact of life. And since they aren't going away anytime soon, I think it's time we take a closer look at just exactly what it is we're dealing with. Here are nine quotes that confirm what we've always suspected: Monday mornings are the worst.
