Researchers have found that Monday is not an unusually depressing day. It’s actually just one of four extremely depressing days running from Monday through Thursday.
Data collected from Gallup telephone interviews indicates that people are equally unhappy on all working days except Friday.
According to Professor Stone of Stony Brook University (his own personal university?), who led the team that conducted the research, people have a perception that Monday is the worst day of the week because of the contrast from the weekend when they might not be extremely unhappy.
The obvious cure to this malaise is to have people in on Sunday.
