Anyone who has ever seen Office Space knows that we’re putting coversheets on all the TPS reports now (unless you haven’t seen the memo). What the fuck are TPS reports? Well, it doesn’t matter what TPS stands for. It’s just another weird workplace acronym. Practically every job has a weird workplace acronym of their own. Some jobs have more than one. I’m sure your job as an acronym or two that is always a topic of discussion at the water cooler or the bar after work. My job has SOAP reports. They break down sales, comps, voids, etc. and rank each employee. I don’t like SOAP. I will not be defined by SOAP. I don’t believe in SOAP.

Mondays suck. They are like the first day of school, but it happens every week. You can’t avoid them. I’ve tried going from Sunday to Tuesday a few times, and it only worked once, and it involved a shit ton of Nyquil. Monday is the start of the average workweek, and there is nothing worse than going to work Monday morning and thinking that Friday might never come.
Mondays are big in pop culture. Garfield hates Mondays. Office Space has that annoying reoccurring line, “Sounds like someone has a case of the Mondays.” The Mamas & the Papas had that song “Monday, Monday.” Basically everyone hates Mondays. The only good things it has going for it are some decent network shows and Monday Night Football. And whenever you feel glum on Tuesday, you can at least be happy it isn’t Monday.
