The Weekend

A long time ago, my friend told me the weekend is from the end of work Friday 5pm to Monday morning 9am. I’ve never forgotten that and maximize my weekend right up until the minute of logging in Monday morning, my boss be damned.

Weekend state of mind

I disagree about your weekend timeline. When I worked in a large office, people would start talking about their weekend plans during Friday morning coffee. On Monday till afternoon coffee break People would discuss their interesting "weekend" activities. I find that having a life outside work makes it easier to perform for the boss. My grandmother's motto was "Work hard! Play hard!"

A beyond time ago Thich Nhat Hanh told me life has no beginning and no end :-) ....... cast off the shadow SPELL-ing mis-takes beyond your present cognition and try, try and try ... to the place of quit trying, just let it be, let it be, simple words of wisdom , let it be, let it be .............. ps: don't forget though, while 'letting it be,' Thich always told us we have a responsibility to advocate for those who are suffering.

Every time Friday afternoon comes around, I just can’t wait to go home and have some sex.

Yeah unless you sadly work in a restaurant (like me) where weekends are critical

When I worked at the post office I did not have enough seniority to get Friday Saturday Sunday off work. I called my weekend the 2 days I got off Monday to Thursday. Enjoy your days off (as the op says) "boss be damned!"

On a van… the first five days after the weekend are the hardest.
