Another Monday, another bunch of PR hits the online versions of the media; covered by the Daily Mail and The Daily Telegraph and even Business Insider, it seems misery loves company nearly as much as the media loves bad news.
For today is (drum roll) Blue Monday, the third Monday of the January, which has been named the ‘Most Miserable Day of the Year’ for seven years or so now.
Let’s face it, cold Monday mornings are pretty harsh. Add early meetings, snow, delayed trains and lack of sleep, it’s not exactly a good start to the week. While I waited 15 minutes in the snow for a delayed train and spent my journey standing up in a crowded carriage, while being wailed at on my mobile by my daughter at home who was unable to find a sports sock (said sock was found), I just can’t agree this is the most miserable day of the year for me, but it seems like it is for the PRs behind the story who are getting a lot of flack.
So let’s rebrand this day to the Most Miserable Day of the Year for PRs and the rest of us can go happily about our business and look forward to the news season of Girls which starts tonight…
