Seriously speaking, the first comic strip I ever read was Garfield. The one thing that endeared me to him, other than his love for food and sleeping in, was his hate for Mondays. As a kid and now into my adult life, Mondays have always been the days where shit just tends to explode all over my great feeling buzz from the weekend. So, today’s strip brings that into focus. As proof of concept, today my wife’s medical insurance decided to change the way her co pays work for her dental coverage and we wound up having to pull 119 bucks out of thin air to pay it. Keep in mind we don’t have it to give and just wound up making a post dated check and we hope that when the end of the month rolls around we can pay it. If not, well, groceries will have to take a hit as will a few other expenses for the rest of the month just to make stuff work financially.
I won’t go into just how badly this screws us for the ENTIRE MONTH, but i will say that anyone who thinks public employees (like teachers) get awesome benefits and exceptional pay is purely riding a wave of hyped up rhetoric. Just saying, Mondays suck.
Gotta love Mondays.
