Haiku For Monday #13

Oh a holiday
Why don't I get the day off?
Bad employer, bad

Office half empty
Java flowing, workers tired
Bed calling our names

Holiday? What holiday?

It's a holiday? Damn Canadian gov't always jipping us out of day's off work! You can suffer with my whole country today! :)

my building is closed
my boss isn't here
but still I showed up for work.

lawyers often do
work on holidays
even if there is no heat.

to break your lovely tradition:

There once was a blogger named Chris
Whose entries I never would miss.
Each Monday anew
He would post a haiku
About java and his work abyss.

now, back to your regularly scheduled haikus.

There's a holiday today? Oh, yeah... one of my coworkers just left to participate in a parade.

Well, I survived the weekend (no thanks to you) and I just want to say "Happy MLK Day"!!

A bit of bitter prose for a bitterly cold day (which I should have had off!)...

My fucking work sucks
I have nothing to do now
So why am I here?

Arrgh- so very not in a good mood today...

I've already had two meetings today! I think everyone is taking advantage of the market being closed to catch up! (That's what we're all about here in my little financial institution support world!)

In the amusment park/museum/attraction/transportation industry, no one ever takes a friggen day off!!

I hear ya. I'm stuck in the office today with NOTHING to do. The phone isn't ringing and I'm so bored! And to top it off, I had to dig my way out of 8" of snow from yesterday's storm...I really don't like Mondays.

Can we have a 'button' for Haiku For Monday please?

Posted by: Amber at January 19, 2004 11:37 AM

Fuck me for working.
There is nobody else here.
I am freezing.

Last night, I spent the evening on the streets of Dallas with a vagrant and a local hoodlum. We stood in the freezing cold and shared a pizza I bought for $2 from a delivery man trying to unload a delivery gone south.

I would rather be back there than at work today.

Bad, bad employer. BAD.
