A dash of Pepper…

…with a splash of Mint

Not all Fridays are happy

Posted by Pepper on February 8, 2013

The ‘Friday feel’ is usually awesome. You know?  That feeling that comes with knowing you don’t have to wake up to an alarm the next day. That feeling of lightheartedness that accompanies you all day? That feeling of freedom? That feeling of anticipation? That feeling of general happiness?

Well, I don’t feel it this Friday. Because I am working tomorrow. In my world, working on a Saturday is blasphemous. My work seems like it will never end. The atmosphere continues to be poisonous.

This is going to be a hectic weekend. I have a lot lined up. I don’t feel up to it. I am waiting for some news from Mint’s end. That leaves me on the edge, as usual. I have a monster headache. I am cranky and grumpy and grouchy and angry and angsty and snarky and crabby and.. just plain tired. It is all of it put together, but mainly, it is just work. Work that sucks.

To all of you who don’t have to go to work tomorrow and are basking in the Friday happiness – I hate you.

    Hahah you know what, I am not looking forward to Sat too. DH is working and I will be home alone with dotter. Somehow doesnt give a weekend feel to it.

    Good luck, next weekend is always there.

    Dont hate me. ;–P

  2. In my world I work on Sundays, all Sundays. I cannot come up with an apt adjective to describe my weekends!

  3. Okay, that’s me, basking in Friday happiness ***raises elbow to hide face****
    Boo! Hoo!! Pepper hates me …..:'( 😥 ……

    Dang! working on Sat. sucks 😦 But hang on, that’s the best time to goof around, hoping not many ppl are going to be there. Wear casuals you’d never wear to work otherwise. If Mint is coming to town, he could go with you and find himself an empty workstation. You could finish work while he browsed / worked / emailed, etc. Finish whatever you have to and both of you go out and have a blast after that – makes it even more sweet. If he isn’t, ask your sis, or a friend………

    Psst……also, offline work hours are the best to steer bosses into personal conversations and gather gossip material – Never know when it could come handy (C’mon don’t be surprised, you knew I was wicked 😉 LOL! )

    I went a step ahead. Had a baby. No Fridays, Saturdays or Sundays. No nights as well. I’m looking forward to starting work again. Jokes apart, hope next Friday is loads better. Hugs

      What? Every Saturday? I know a lot of companies are working on Saturdays, but I would totally refuse to be employed with them 😦 I need 2 day weekends.
