Monday’s have long been known as the worst day of the week, but new research is indicating that today, Monday the 6th of January, may in fact be the worst Monday in recorded Irish history, especially for those returning to work.
Hundreds of thousands of people had to return to work today for the first full week since the Xmas and New Year’s break. It appears to be a horrific shock to the system with many not knowing how to deal with the situation.
Most people have found themselves today, sitting at their desks, starring into emptiness, wondering why they’re back in work so soon, surrounded by their colleagues, many of whom they passionately hate.
Not only did today mark the start of the first full working week of 2014, but people had to tackle it head on, against one of the worst storms the country has ever seen.
The tormenting emotional challenge of returning to work was only outdone by Storm Christine, who spent the morning agressively blowing everyone on their way to work.
Soaked, beaten and emotionally drained, many are now in work, contemplating whether or not they’ll be able to make it through the rest of the week – some will even struggle to make it through the rest of the day without needing to cry.
Storm Christine has also impacted many schools around the country, with some being forced to open specific “Wet Rooms” in an attempt to deal with the fallout of the unforgiving weather.
