According to a survey carried out last week, 87% of people ‘Love Mondays’.
The poll was the idea of Jon Payne, the great ape here at Noisy Little Monkey and a man who’s hatred of early mornings is only marginally outweighed by his hatred of early mornings on Mondays and Chihuahuas. It seems that in launching it at 9AM (GMT) last week, he hoped to find kindred spirits in the online community and this would prove that he was not a fattish, balding, lonely curmudgeon.
Sadly this is not the case, a whopping 87% of people polled responded that they loved Mondays.
We should point out that many of the people who took part in the poll were from a small business user group for whom Noisy Little Monkey work to promote their websites.
Undoubtedly, the people who ‘love Mondays’ leave work on Friday to enjoy a weekend of unbridled hedonism. Returning on Monday they find their inboxes stuffed full of orders and enquiries from customers and potential clients who’ve discovered them online thanks to the efforts of Noisy Little Monkey. As illustrated a recent Monday morning email we received after working on the SEO & AdWords for a client:
“Just a quick sales update for you....
We sold 10 pool tables.
Our best weekend ever”
Poor old Jon. By helping these people build business online, he’s only serving to alienate himself further. Until about 10AM when he gradually transforms into an enthusiastic, fattish, balding web idealist again.
