You know the Christmas tune It's The Most Wonderful Time of the Year? Well, today is the most miserable time of the year. (I'll leave it to Weird Al to come up with some lyrics for that ditty) Actually, today is the most miserable day of the year, according to a story in the London Daily Mail. They call it Blue Monday. This cheery news comes to us from the folks at FirstCare, a company that helps firms tackle absenteeism. These fun guys and gals say the combination of Arctic temperatures, Christmas debt and the next pay day feeling like it's months away leaves many of us depressed and unable to face work.
For those of you afflicted with this, I have a suggestion. How about being thankful that you have a job?! There are literally millions of people in the U.S. looking for work who would gladly change places with you.
