98% of all Newry, Mourne and Down workers are considering pulling a sickie on Monday, according to a recent survey.
With the Christmas holidays nearing its end, and people facing the prospect of early mornings, traffic congestion and arsehole bosses, the Newry workforce is tempted to add one more day to their festive holidays.
Office worker Gareth McGivern, who took part in the survey, told Newry Spud:
“My boss is a total arsehole. The thought of having to get up, drive 30 miles down the M1, just to keep him happy makes me feel like throwing myself off the 18 Arches. I really can’t bear the though.”
Declan O’Hare, who conducted the survey added:
“It seems that most of us don’t fancy the prospect of facing work on Monday. I wouldn’t be too surprised if bosses found themselves doing all the work themselves on Monday.”
