BENIGN TO FIVE
Isn’t it awful: that feeling you get when you’re hating every minute of your working week and, during the weekend, for one reason or another, you find yourself passing your office.
It’s like being severely hungover and having a face-to-face encounter with the primary cause of your misery – “Oh no, I can’t even look at blueberry schnapps at the moment.” And avoiding it is sometimes easier said than done. It really depends on the level of your antipathy towards your workplace and how far you’re willing to go to circumvent the feeling of flurry-in-the-tummy foreboding.
If you have just become a bit frustrated by problems over the past couple of weeks, you really only need to refrain from very close encounters of the workplace kind. I’m talking about getting so close you can smell the lacquer on the front door of the office – not too hard a task.
If things are a little more challenging, and have been for longer than a month, you might need to give the entire street block in which your building stands a miss.
If you are enjoying work about as much as finding a white-tailed spider colony in your underwear moments before consummating your wedding vows, you are probably going to have to stay away from a full suburb. And all adjacent suburbs.
And if things have progressed to the point where you cannot even think about work without gagging, you shouldn’t even leave the house. Which works out well, because you should also be spending your Saturdays and Sundays furiously completing job applications.
When it comes to keeping your work out of your weekend, “wide berth” is a relative term.
