Dave!This was not the best day.

Usually Mondays are no different than any other day for me. Probably because I work seven days a week. But the drama which other people attribute to Mondays can definitely fuck up my day. Kind of like The Black Death fucked up the 14th century, but on a much larger scale. Well, larger to me, since I'm the one who had to deal with it. To the best of my knowledge I wasn't alive during the 14th century, so it's not like The Black Death was any skin off of my nose.

Things started off bad when my electronic key fob wouldn't unlock my car. This is really embarrassing, because it means having to unlock the door with my actual key (how quaint!) and possibly setting off the alarm. An alarm which will blast the horn for two full minutes. Which doesn't sound like a long time, but when all your neighbors are staring at you with death in their eyes, it's an eternity. The trick is to get the key into the ignition very, very quickly so you can use some off/on trickery to deactivate the alarm manually. Fortunately, I managed to get the sequence right and avoid being assaulted by an angry mob... but still.

A minor victory, but things just went down hill from there.

The good news is that it's almost midnight and tomorrow is another day.

Hopefully a better day.

    I’m sorry your Monday sucked. I made it to work on Monday, early to boot. Considering what happened last Monday,
    I consider that a major victory.
    Hope Tuesday is better for you.

    Car key? What’s that???

  3. Sybil Law says:

    Awww – here’s to better days!

    And, yep – I get all pissy about the alarm, but only when people let it go forever. The initial alarm doesn’t bug me, though – hell – it’s early!

  4. I’m like you that Mondays are just like any other day. No worse, no better. If I had to choose a least-favorite day of the week, it would probably be Wednesday.
