anyone else get the monday blues ? i have been working retail for so long and never really had a monday cuz my schedule changed all the time and i hardly ever got two days off in a row.

Now i work mon-fri and i find myself panicking sunday nite about going back to work on monday...i need a three day weekend...two to play and one to rest...

any thoughts or advice ? i have wanted this type of schedule for years and now that i have it, it is going to be an adjustment !

I think the monday blues is a condition that affects most of the working population so you are definately not alone!

Even after I start a new job after a period of unemployment I find it hard to wake up on a monday Smile

I feel for you working in retail, I have done my time there and at times it gets so damn frustrating. One time there was only me and my boss at the store and it is a popular store. He had the flu but had to be there. I am manning the cash register when I run out of change because for some unknown reason everyone had $50 notes that day. So I try to call him and get no reply, I swear I was calling for over an hour. Then I come down to my last few gold coins and get yet another $50 note. Im sure u understand that by this point I am frustrated, the line is getting longer and the stupid customer gets cranky with me cause I am stressed. So I broke down, one of the customers in line new the boss and went looking for him. He comes out, I give him a serve infront of all the customers I really did not hold back! Anyway he gets change and sends me on my break. He did apologise a lot and after that they made sure there were enough staff in the store!

sounds like a frustrating experience youngfilly. my last manager is one of the reasons i quit my last job...she was a true nightmare (stealing and a total biatch).

Right before you get out of the shower turn the water all the way to cold and stand there for as long as you can. When you get out it makes the room feel nice and warm Smile
