Seems Everyone Is Really Excited To Be Back At Work This Week...
Oh wait, no they're not 😂
Jeez, even though we only had a 4 day work week (Monday was a public holiday in the UK), it was a challenge. There wasn't anyone I spoke to at work (including customers) who, after saying "happy new year", had any "happiness" at all in their voice.
As soon as they said those words, you could hear the realisation in their voice like "shit, we're back doing this nonsense again"!
It was pretty sweet not having to set the alarm for 11 days, seems my natural body clock goes with the flow of the daylight and being in the cloudy UK, it stays dark for a while so getting up before midday would be enough to leave me pleasantly surprised.
So this week, breaking that natural sleeping pattern back 4 hours left this guy grouchy AF!
Thankfully, we could all vent about it at work as colleagues called when on they were on the road, still clinging on to the good vibes from Xmas as the 12th day came and went. Decorations gone, tree gone...
Oh how we all missed the corporate fun and games, managers pointing blame, spats with colleagues over processes... let's not forget the "Teams meeting bingo game"!
Ah well, you can but smile wryly, keep your head down and stay out of trouble... and listen to drum and bass music of course
Hope your return to work was pain free :)
