Because they have to strain to remember their passwords.

Nothing unique about IT

by DC Guy In reply to Why is it

All workers in all trades moan more on Mondays. After spending the weekend in "real life," at home with our families, doing the things we enjoy and/or find fulfilling, here we are back on our heads for another week.

Living in a country whose government is beholden to the oil industry doesn't help. Most of us could do our jobs at home since most of us happen to have a computer and a telephone there. But making everyone spend two hours a day fighting gridlock means more profits for the people who pull the puppet strings.

Even if it means everybody shows up especially cranky on Monday.

you don't think oil has anything to do with it???... our govt. could never think of deplenishing a non renewable resource, and pollute our planet, just to make someone rich...

It's simple math

We all moan. Mondays get 3/7 of all the moaning we do about work cuz there ain't anybody around to moan to on Saturday or Sunday. The other four (4) days of the week each 1/7 of all the moans. 3/7 + 4 * 1/7 = 7/7 = one week's worth of moaning. If you worked for a company that had a work week of, say Thur through Monday, then your Thursday would be your moan day.

And another thing....

Monday was originally pronounced Moanday back in days when the day-naming people were naming days. It was called Moanday precisely for the reason you stated...b/c people moan more on that day. It was pronounced Moanday because the Old English language had a horrible accent. Even worse than the Boston accent. As time went on and people learnt how to speak English, it was eventually changed to the current spelling of "Monday".

Modern English accents

by M_a_r_k In reply to Mark

You're right about the Brit accents. I was in England a while back. Couldn't understand a word that was spoken. I may as well have been in Bulgaria. You guys took a great language and totally fouled it up.

wait a minute

I thought we were the ones that totally foul'd up the language?... at least that's what my brit friends tell me... and BTW, what does "limey" refer to?
