March 2, 2020

That’s it. We’d like to talk to whoever’s in charge. How are we about to spend another 365 hours on another Monday when Saturday and Sunday, feel like 5 hours combined?

Getting through today might require more than power and might, so to help you out, we came up with 7 innovative ways to pass the time until you can escape and be free from the clutches of another Monday

Do the classic minimized screen watching your favourite show, while ‘working’ on your laptop.

Is there a better time than Monday to catch up on all the shows you missed while sleeping this weekend?

Another classic, leave your WhatsApp web open the entire time you’re working on your laptop.

Want to look busy while passing the time faffing around? Nothing works better?

Start a fight with your colleague.

Do you know how many hours will fly by when HR tries to get to the root of the problem? Not to mention all that adrenalin coursing through your veins.

Make a game out of trying to determine how many of your co-workers are still hungover from last night.

Bonus points if you stir some drama, asking HR to organise 12 step meetings when the number exceeds 5.

Eat one meat from your co-worker’s packed lunch in the fridge.

Sit back in evil as they make up tribunals to investigate (omg, this is terrible. Don’t do this.)

Set up a dummy email account and message everyone in the company saying ‘someone in this company has ruined it. Story drops at 5 PM’

Watch as everyone splits hairs trying to understand WTF is going on.

Just quit your job already!

Who employment and a steady income really app? You sef think am.

These are our tricks, do them at your own risk. A.K.A don’t call us when they use Ghana Must Go to pack your load from work.
