Yes,of course I am a member of the great collective that hates Mondays, particularly Mondays that I have to go work. So naturally when I learned that Mod Mom Beyond Indiedom was starting a blog hop specifically for complaining about the dreaded Monday I had to hook up.
Mondays are almost always hard at the police station. If you had the weekend off you are surly about coming back to work. If you have been working all weekend you really hate it that its Monday and you are still here. This particular Monday is the morning after the Super Bowl so most folks stayed up later than usual and are sleep deprived on top of everything else.
Mondays are always busy too. Courts and offices are closed on the weekend so everyone calls in Monday morning to get their business done. Juvenile delinquents, don't like Mondays either so we get lots of calls from their parents. Fights increase on weekends so on Monday we have a bumper crop of domestic protection orders to process. Although the urban legend that Super Bowl Sunday is the biggest day of the year for domestic violence has been disproved the fact remains that the the combination of sports and booze does create a lot of business for police officers.
Yet another problem that increases on Mondays is car accidents. Somehow over the weekends people forget to drive over the weekend. Naturally Mother Nature co operated this morning by dropping a fresh blanket of snow. This allows the commuter to add a game of Dodge-ems to the morning trip.
In short the biggest problem with Mondays is that the universe has given us plenty of signs that we should just stay in bed.
And we don't listen.
