Monday’s Just Suck!

  

Scientific studies show that Monday’s do suck. 

“File this under things that we already knew, but a confirmation by science doesn’t hurt. A scientific study by Marmite has revealed that Mondays do indeed suck.”

“The findings fo the study, as reported by The Telegraph, indicate that many people don’t smile on Mondays until 11:16 am, and that half of us won’t turn up to work on time, either. Mondays also tend to be fairly unproductive, with only about three and a half hours of actual work getting done. And those in the 45 to 54 year-old demographic will moan for about 12 minutes on Mondays, making them the most susceptible to the suck that is Monday.”

  

“Experts indicate that the reason behind our hatred of Mondays is a result of humans being “governed by deep-rooted tribal habits” and that we prefer to ease into the week rather than tackle it head-on first thing Monday morning. In fact, those that do the latter may end up burning themselves out before Friday hits.”

And if you really hate Monday’s as much as I do, then go on over to causes.com and there, you can actually join to vote to ban Monday’s. I know it’s a joke to ban Monday’s, but you’ll see how many people HATE Monday. 

  

Most of us don’t crack our first smile until 11:16 a.m.”

“A study, by Marmite in England, showed the Southeast was the happiest region, with people cracking the first smile at 11.06 a.m. The East Midlands are the glummest, taking until 11.33 a.m. to look on the bright.”

“Over 50% of employees are late to work on Monday’s. A lame excuse won’t work; researchers claim that most of us find the start of the week so grim nearly half of us are late for work.”

“The best preferred way to beat Monday blues is by watching television or having sex.”

  • The top five ways to get over that horrible Monday feeling is: 
  • 1. Watching TV, 
  • 2. Sex, 
  • 3. On-line shopping, 
  • 4. Buying chocolate or make-up and 
  • 5. Planning a holiday

  

Did you know???

  • “Most people will moan about it being Monday for a whole 12 minutes”

  

  • “People between the ages of 45 and 54 are likely to suffer the most Monday blues.”
  • “Workers only manage three-and-a-half hours of productive work.”
  • “Monday is the most likely day to commit suicide.”

“The Office for National Statistics in England found 16% of male suicides and 17% of female suicides occurred on Mondays, compared to 13% on the weekend days. Researchers said the trend was not solely a result of returning to work as it was also seen in retired people.”

  • Mondays are also the most likely day to get a heart attack.”

“The British Medical Journal reported a 20% increase in heart attacks on Mondays as opposed to the other days of the week. The attacks may be caused by stress and high blood pressure caused by returning to work. ”
  

  • “Monday is the least rainy day of the week.”

“Some believe it’s due to man-made pollution subsiding over the weekend.”

  • Monday is the best for buying cars.”

“Believe it or not, there are positive things about Monday. For instance, when you’re going to shop for a new car, do it on a Monday. Car salespeople make the bulk of their sales on the weekends. When Monday rolls around, there are usually few customers in sight, and the weekend is a long way off. That’s why car salespeople are more desperate on Monday, and they’ll be more willing to cut you a deal.”

Why We Say “Trick or Treat”

Why Do We Say “Trick or Treat”
“It’s one of a kid’s favorite parts of Halloween. There’s no feeling quite like waiting for a stranger to open his or her door so you can scream the words “Trick or treat!” But why do we say it? What does it actually mean? The practice of donning a costume and asking for treats from your neighbors dates back to the Middle Ages, but back then it wasn’t a game.

During the medieval practice of souling, poor people would make the rounds begging for food. In return, they offered prayers for the dead on All Souls Day. (What does the “een” in “Halloween” mean exactly? The answer lies here.)”

“Modern trick or treating is a custom borrowed from guising, which children still do in some parts of Scotland. Guising involves dressing in costume and singing a rhyme, doing a card trick, or telling a story in exchange for a sweet. The Scottish and Irish brought the custom to America in the 19th century.”

IMG_4504.JPG
“Some have traced the earliest reference of the term trick or treat in print was in 1927, in Alberta, Canada. It appears as if the practice didn’t really take hold in the U.S. until the mid-1930s, where it was not always well received. The demanding of a treat angered or puzzled some adults. Supposedly, in a Halloween parade in 1948 in New York, the Madison Square Boys Club carried a banner sporting the message “American Boys Don’t Beg.” By 1952, the practice was widely accepted enough to be mentioned in the family television show Ozzie and Harriet.”

Why women dominate PR

Women In PR

This Post Can Originally be found here

That women are so prevalent in the public relations business should be news to no one (especially frequent visitors to this site).

It’s a fact that women comprise 63 percent of PR specialist roles and 59 percent of PR management positions, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. However, many believe that females are underrepresented at the C-level in PR.

Why? Why are there so many more women working in PR than men?

The Atlantic gave reporter Olga Khazan 3,700-plus words to answer that question in a piece that was published last week. Khazan interviewed 10 women who work in public relations to help find the answer.

It’s worth your time to chew on the whole thing, but we’ll hit a few highlights for you below:

  • The media paints a glamorous picture of what comprises a female PR professional’s life. According to…

Why Girls Don’t Care If Guys Hate High-Waisted Shorts

The past few months my newsfeed has been overloaded with articles entitled, “Why Girls Should Stop Wearing High-Waisted Shorts,” or “The 12 Reasons Guys Hate Girls Who Wear Peplum Tops” Yeah, Hi I don’t give a shit what you think of my outfit because guess what? I don’t dress myself based on what makes you sexually aroused. I actually get up in the morning and put on what I LIKE simply because I LIKE IT. The funniest part about this is guys actually think we take their opinion into consideration on this. There are a lot of things I think about with men in mind, but when it comes to how I dress myself, absolutely not. So the influx of articles and bullet-ed lists about why we should stop dressing a certain way is not only a waste of your time it is also not going to work.

20 Zingers That Remind Us Why We Love Joan Rivers

Joan Rivers died at the age of 81, and those of us who loved her trademark cutting, sometimes catty but always clever, humor are heartbroken. There will definitely never be another zinger like Joan. She’s got way too many classic jokes to list here – and some haven’t aged well – but I rounded up a handful of my favorite Joan quotes on life, love, sex and aging.

People say that money is not the key to happiness, but I always figured if you have enough money, you can have a key made.
I don’t exercise. If God had wanted me to bend over, he would have put diamonds on the floor.
She’s so pure, Moses couldn’t even part her knees.
I’m no cook. When I want lemon on chicken, I spray it with Pledge.
The first time I see a jogger smiling, I’ll consider…

Why You Should Date An Asshole

Why Dating An Asshole is Actually a Good Thing…

IMG_3073.JPG
“The sprawling new-age dating landscape is littered with land mines: awkward first dates, un-returned     text-messages, photo-shopped Tinder profiles, sexually repressed closet-cases, and mysteriously broken condoms — just to name a select few.”

IMG_3070.JPG
“We instinctively attempt to avoid them; tip-toeing carefully from one clear patch of land to the next, trying to make it to the other side unscathed. We feel ashamed when a love interest hurts us. We feel embarrassed when we voluntarily hand an abject asshole the key to our heart, along with the power to break it. We blame ourselves for missing the clues, for not treading a little more carefully.”

Why Your Personality Isn’t Your Fault

To get away from yourself is difficult. Nature chains your body and your mind. Those that have managed it, through an out-of-body experience or a psychedelic trip, claim to have unique perspectives on life and perhaps they do. But the majority of us stay inside our heads. We view “I” as synonymous with “self.” All of those traits and predispositions, those wiggles and twists of our personalities. They are us. We see no distinction.

And who could be responsible for that self but you? We’re told from childhood to take responsibility for our actions. A plethora of books and television shows teach us that we can improve the self, if only we try hard enough. Become thinner, more intelligent, make more friends. Our politics emphasizes the individual, making choices and flaunting his agency. We are own masters.

So of course when somebody calls you rude, selfish, or ignorant, you get…
