but, to put a different spin on it, the reason we don't like Mondays is because we have to head back to work.. so I spare a thought for all those who wish they still had a job to go to on a Monday, and it just puts some positive perspective on it for me.

When I was working I did 12 hour shifts from 7 pm to 7 am. The days I worked repeated every two weeks. on MON, TUE, off WED, THR, on FRI, SAT, SUN, off MON TUE, on WED, THR, off FRI, SAT, SUN. So if the first day you go back to work is Monday and the last day you work is Friday, I had 3 Mondays and Fridays every two weeks. Plus just one Wednesday in the same time frame.

I'm looking to get something with the M-F dayshift grind to see what it is like to be a normal person.

After nearly 40 years at the same company, I was headed out the door last January, then mine 401k went south and so did my plans. Still here, still killing time, wanting out. But at least I have a job...
