18 Things You'll Understand If You Have To Work Bank Holidays
FOMO for days.
Getting up for work on a Monday that’s not even supposed to be a work Monday is a million times harder.
But traveling into work is ten times easier than usual.
You wish everyone else would stay off work every Monday if it’s going to make your commute this easy.
You can buy a fancier-than-usual lunch, because treat yourself: it's a bank holiday.
You hope for rain to ruin everyone else’s bank holiday.
If it does rain you feel mega smug about all the called-off picnics.
But shade to anyone who does manage to have a lovely time outside when you're in work.
Because Bank Holiday FOMO is like weekend FOMO x 1000.
Your friends always seem to make the best plans when you’re working on a bank holiday.
But if you are off on a bank holiday, they are obviously nowhere to be seen.
If you work in an office and you have to go in on a bank holiday, it’s quiet and amazing.
If you work in a pub, you’re secretly judging everyone who’s getting drunk on a Monday.
If you work in a restaurant, people definitely feel more sorry for you and you’ll get extra tips.
When everyone trudges back into work hungover and moaning on the Tuesday after a bank holiday you're all, NBD, just a normal week for me.
You feel off the hook about having to make any super-fun plans because you’re working ¯\_(ツ)_/¯.
Because there’s no pressure to have fun like bank holiday pressure to have fun.
But then when you get your day off and everyone's back at work, you Instagram your out-of-office fun like a motherfucker.
