I’m not a big fan of weekends, so I can’t say I’ve always been a huge fan of Mondays. I think I was raised with my dad saying, “Monday is for work. If you have to be at work, Monday is a day to rest up.” I think that’s why I’m not a big fan of Mondays.
While Mondays might not be much of a time for me, Mondays are one of the most important days of the week for many businesses. I work for a business, and when their time is up (whether it be Monday or Friday), they need to be on their feet for an extended period of time. If you work for a company and you miss that day, you have to find another job to go to. This is why Mondays are so important to many companies.
My own company has a Monday meeting. If you are a boss, you are probably already aware of this, but Mondays are special for many types of employees. The more senior you are, the more important this day is. You can’t just come in and say, “Hey, I’d like to take a quick peek at your calendar.” you need to make a good impression first.
I’m not exactly sure why Mondays are important. My guess is that they are the day that a company makes its most substantial announcement. But I’m not sure if that’s always an accurate assessment. There’s also the possibility that it is simply a special day, and that the company only announces big events on Mondays. In any case, Mondays are still very important to most companies, not just because of what they are, but also because of why they are.
A Tuesday is still a Tuesday, unless you’re a very small company. In fact, there’s a very big difference between the value of a Tuesday and a Wednesday. A Wednesday is like the day that the US Postal Service starts sending packages for the first time. A Tuesday is like the day the first package actually gets sent out of the USPS. A Thursday is like the day that a package gets delivered for the first time.
Wednesdays have become the unofficial start of the new year, so it’s no surprise that companies like Wal-mart and Microsoft are putting their employees on them. The Postal Service has been getting people to work a Tuesday, so they don’t think they have to send you a package. It’s much the same with Microsoft. Even though the company is more known as a consumer electronics company, they are more into giving their employees a break from the office.
That’s right. We’re one of those employees. A package we receive for the first time is considered a Christmas gift from the company, but they also send us one for a Monday, so it’s a Wednesday. If we don’t receive a Christmas package then we go on a sick day.
The problem is that if you receive a package on a Tuesday and are sick on Wednesday, you dont have to worry about it because you didnt receive it. If you receive a package on a Monday and are sick on Tuesday, you have to worry because you didnt receive it.
The Christmas package is the one big box we open on Christmas day. It contains a lot of presents, candy, and other random goodies. The problem is that we are on a work holiday so we dont have a lot of time to open it in the morning. A few of our coworkers like to send us Christmas packages on Christmas day though, so sometimes we dont get one until the evening.
Well, the package was probably from some family member though, so it makes sense that they decided to send it to us on a Wednesday. If it were to have come by email or something, we would have opened it on Christmas day since that is the day we typically open them.
