11 ish interesting facts about Mondays.

Check out today’s Teatime Titbit: 11 ish interesting facts about Mondays.

Mondays have got a bad reputation, haven’t they? The website Oddee.com mostly confirmed this with depressing stats like:

  1. Most people do not smile on Monday until 11.16 am – obviously the first thoughts about what’s for lunch.
  2. Most people will moan about it being Monday for a whole 12 minutes.
  3. 50% of workers on Monday are late for work.
  4. Staff ensures maximum productivity during only 3.5 hours on Mondays.
  5. Most suicides and heart attacks occur on Monday.

Thanx, but no thanx: https://www.oddee.com/item_98139.aspx

Thankfully https://www.thefactsite.com/2018/01/monday-facts.html gives a more balanced list.

Did you know Monday is the best day to buy a car? It is also the day, when the U.S. stock market is most likely to rise and the least likely it is to rain – I wonder if that includes Münster?!

In Latin Monday means ‘day of the moon’, there were only 53 Mondays in 2012 & 2018 (we have to wait until 2024 for it to happen again) and it is the only day of the week, which you can make a single word anagram out of, ‘dynamo’, – how cool is that.

Hope those little titbits brightened your mood a little. You can always check the out this the crucifixion scene in ‘Life of Brian’ with the song of the century – “Always look on the bright side of life” (with lyrics) – take it away YouTube: https://youtu.be/cs4XKzFC_oU

Have a Mega Monday and wonderful week.

All these Monday moaners…. terrible. And what did my brother send me this morning?! “Uaaaaaahhh… work….” 😉 so yes, I can confirm that it’s a Moanday for many people although I like this day. New week, new chances… 🙂
