Looks like Someone's got a Case of the Mondays

As a stay at home mom I often have no idea what day of the week it is. You might think that this is the reason why I've named a Thursday post after Monday, but I assure you it was no mistake. Sadly the Mondays can hit at any time. They don't care if it's Thursday and unlike the swine flu you can't prevent them by wearing a trendy mask. Seriously though, I've been feeling stressed and crappy as of late and the Coach came home venting about a craptastic day as well. I figure if this isn't a good time to try and glean some wisdom from the film Office Space, when is? So put down that TPS report, grab a piece of cake and whatever you do don't let that red stapler out of your sight.

  • Honesty is always the best policy. People respect a man who is honest, even if he's admitting that he's unmotivated and doesn't care.
  • Put down the Ben and Jerry's and pick up a baseball bat. Not only is it less calories, but 9 out of 10 psychiatrists recommend beating an inanimate object to death to cure whatever ails you. As a warning the song in this video has alot of rough language, so if you are like me and would rather not hear it watch the first 30 seconds of dialogue and then mute it for the song.
  • The last clip also taught us that it's OK to steal as long as it's for your friends.
  • The quiet ones are the ones you should watch out for. Don't mess with them. Actually it might even be safer to befriend them.
  • You can look anything up in the dictionary. ''I can't believe what a bunch of nerds we are. We're looking up money laundering in a dictionary.'' —Peter
  • The happiest people in the world sport mullets and heavy mustaches. So the next time you go to the stylist tell them you want "business in the front and party in the back" oh and ladies you can stop waxing your lip now.

LOL i think you can honestly learn how to live life in the workplace solely based on the film office space. I think i need to get the hell out of an office setting and work in construction just like he did.

I love the scenes with the Bobs. And Mr. Punk is one of those weird Office Space junkies. Can you believe that? The man watches anime and Mythbusters but he loves him some Office Space. The benefit/ consequence of this is that we toss Office Space quotes around in conversation like it's normal. Riiiiiight.

And, Godfather, sir, the longer Mr. Punk is in the office setting, the more he relates to this movie. Get out while you can.

Missy, I suffer the same problem with not knowing what day it is. This is partly because everyday is the absolutely the same, but, to be fair, this problem is exacerbated by the fact that I often think it's the day I'm writing about. For example, I've thought it was Sunday for probably a week now. Sometime in mid-August.

What month is it?

"So I was sitting in my cubicle today, and I realized, ever since I started working, every single day of my life has been worse than the day before it. So that means that every single day that you see me, that's on the worst day of my life." —Peter

... though that could just be PMS...

If I was given the option of wearing flair I would probably wear tell my boss to (well you can figure that out) Actually I would like to tell my former boss that now. Flair just isn't for everyone so I understand Ms. Aniston. Why should she have to do anything that she doesn't want to. When you look like that you should do whatever and whenever. Don't worry Missy I still like you better.

The previous post was supposed to say that i wouldn't wear any flair. Just to clear that up.

HONESTY IS always the best policy.

You SHOULD be wary of the quiet ones.

You CAN find anything in the dictionary.

And while I may wear a heavy mustache, I will NEVER wear a mullet.

And though beating inanimate objects to death may relieve stress, sometimes my kids make me think beating animate objects wouldn't feel too bad either.

Mr. Punk said...

Honesty may be the best policy but I rarely see it respected as such.

When is said inanimate object considered "dead"?

Actually, I think that clip teaches that stealing is ok as long as its from your job.

The quiet ones always have the most to say.

There's nothing wrong with looking up things in the dictionary... nerd.

The mulleted, heavy mustached people of the world simply recognize the simpler joys in life... "Hey Peter, man, check out channel 9, check out this chick."

Mr. Punk, it's nice of you to show up. Even though you are a day late by 51 minutes, still you raise some valid points so we'll let you stay.
