It's most miserable time of the year
With the credit cards calling
And rain always falling, and I'm out of beer
It's the most miserable time of the year
It's the crap-crappiest season of all
With those holiday hangovers, three tons of leftovers
And no friends at all
It's the crap-crappiest season of all

bingethinker: Hmm. Last year they claimed January 21st is the most depressing day. Link to stink


They mention that in this article.  Someone looked at twitter and re-did the math.

It's Twelfth Night here in New Orleans, the beginning of carnival season. Party at Vaughn's, costume required.

I'm still too much of a zombie at work to be depressed today. By next Monday I'll be cranky. Just realised this fits the Kübler-Ross model, so:

Monday 6th Jan - Denial
Monday 13th Jan - Anger
Monday 20th Jan - Bargaining
Monday 27th Jan - Depression
Monday 3rd Feb -  Acceptance

Conclusion - 27th Jan will be the most depressing day this year.

I don't know, I had far too nice of a weekend and have far too nice of a day off planned to be sad.

Boo_Guy: TrotlineDesigns: Until Valentines day.. Then they will say it's Valentines day because of all the lonely people.

I dread Vday,  I've never had a g/f on that day,  some would consider that lucky but it bums me out.


Yeah, same here. Being single on Valentine's Day certainly makes for a cheap holiday, but it can be a little awkward when all your friends have plans of some sort and nobody wants the odd man out hanging around.

Mentat: Leave me alone subby.


-You must be coming down.  Have a Mentat or two.

Don't be sore about it. Maybe next year you will be traded to a team with better chances of making it through the playoffs.

Meatsim1: I'm sitting in Manas AFB after a 9 month deployment to Afghanistan because our flight home, which was supposed to be today the 6th, was delayed two days because apparently its snowing in Bangor, Maine.

God damn right its depressing.


Thanks for your service, Meatsim. Get home safe.

The holidays are over, short work days and paid vacations are over, the weather is the worst it will be all year, and I'm stuck in traffic on my way to sit at a desk for 9 hours.
 
2014-01-06 08:50:12 AM
Today is one of the worst days for me. But we've got a really big group coming in this week (I work at a retreat center) and I always enjoy hanging out with the guests and getting to know them and such. Plus I've got 2 upcoming speaking engagements and a conference to plan for (all of which I am looking forward to).

The only real bummer is that the weather is absolute crap, and I don't feel good about a project I'm working on that will account for roughly a 3rd of my year once it's in place.

every day, is depressing day.
 
2014-01-06 08:52:30 AM
technically yesterday was the 12th day but I'll put my christmas lights on one last time tonight.  I feel cheated by the short season this year.  So nice and pleasant to have them turning away the horrid darkness that still starts way too early.  Once it is light up to supper time (and we're not early eaters), then I can accept the night again.

/Wish I could keep the lights on at least to the end of January, or maybe Groundhog's Day.

Is there a law or something? They're your lights, on your house. Do what you want!

The reason will come to you. Like a bolt out of the blue.

I have a paid day off from work today since we closed because of snow.  Depressed???  Nope.

I'm putting in my two weeks notice at my awful job today. So it's going to be a good day!

You're right, it would have been so much better if you had not come home at all


I know we're not supposed to feed trolls and I'm sure the original poster can fight his own battles (so to speak) but that was a pretty dickish thing to say, dude.

Exactly. I plan to change a few things-- take down the overt Christmas stuff, replace them with generic winter-themed stuff-- and leave the lights up until winter's over.

Damn, reading this thread it seems like a lot of us would have rather done something else than get up and go to work this morning. Where'd we go wrong?

No it isn't. 48 years ago today my parents made good on their plan to move the family to Canada. Best. Move. Ever.

I really think I must be one of the few people who are happy to see the holidays and Christmas behind us.

My favorite holiday is the 4th of July - the only expectations anyone has is that you need to grill something.  And then blow up some fireworks - or drive somewhere, and watch someone else blow up even bigger fireworks.

A lineman? For the county?
 
2014-01-06 09:32:16 AM
I actually dislike the holidays because it involves me traveling and spending money on dumb shiat that nobody wants and receiving crap I don't want and then returning said crap to the store so I love the post-holidays.  I can unwind on the weekends without having prior obligations.  Plus, by the end January  the days are noticeably longer and there are less cloudy days (at least where I live).

November and December are the months that suck.
 
2014-01-06 09:33:02 AM
Oh, so you assholes with your farking 2 months of Xmas spooge and "War on Christmas" whining suddenly feel a LET DOWN when your worldwide takeover ends and the holiday hangover hits?  NOW you care more about debt and getting back to being a jerk every day, and to hell with the "true meaning" of Xmas, which you preached even as you banged every credit card you could find?

How about fark YOU.  Have a big dry Jingle Bell Rock up your ass.  SUFFER as you've made the rest of us suffer for your holly jolly excess.

Get back to work, elf.
 
2014-01-06 09:36:44 AM
I have been stuck at home for the better pets if two weeks with a couple of bored kids and a cranky wife. I am happy as hell to be back to work! I've got shiat to do and the holidays are a real time-killer.
 
2014-01-06 09:37:00 AM
The loudmouth dumbass in the corner is back to work today.... so I'm rather depressed. Last week was like a vacation for my ears.
 
2014-01-06 09:38:31 AM
It's certainly starting out depressing, considering I'm trying to investigate whether my health insurance went thru or not for Massachusetts. Nothing like being on hold for 45 minutes, then the second you get through, the biatch hangs up on you. I'd use the website, except it was made in Canada, and doesn't work.

Did I say depressing? I meant infuriating.
 
2014-01-06 09:54:28 AM
The mail speaks the truth

today i am mostly depressed because my grandad is dying, i'm back at work....and the girl i love is seeing some sort of fat farking ginger pilotty coont.

This doesn't bode well.

Its FREAKIN CHRISTMAS EVE!!!! how the hell can anyone be depressed?!?!?!??!?!?!

I haven't seen it or heard of it if its here, I'm sitting in Liberandos if you remember that place.  I suppose I should be thankful to have Fark to keep me entertained.

Well, on the bright side, MLK Jr day is in just two weeks.  Day off or floater for some of us.

????Is that because you eat so much fried chicken and waffles to celebrate? I know that usually makes my poop float

For my neighbor, the 5th was the most depressing day of the year. I say this because he took his own life in his driveway, with his wife and 3 kids inside his house. And being that our houses are close to each other, me in my bedroom, 10 feet from where it happened. His wife and I had to watch as the firedepartment hosed down his car, my side of the house and his driveway to get it cleaned up........ Later, I had to call the coroner back out to my house to do a sweep of my backyard. My dogs had found a piece of his skull.
 
2014-01-06 10:13:12 AM
my birthday, too. I can confirm it sucks.
 
2014-01-06 10:15:43 AM
partner left me, frankly if it could all end tomorrow, it'd be a cheery evening. Plus a huge repair bill for my car, my house rent going up 11% and not renewing the full lease, i'm about ready to check out.

Especially for those in the north, I know it sucks since the days are so short. But take heart! Each day is longer than the last from now until June 21st or so. And the amount of daylight accelerates between now and March 21st or so. So take cheer in that.
 
2014-01-06 10:26:44 AM
This is why I love living in Florida.

Holidays are over?   Whatever.  While the rest of you are looking at gray skies and freezing temps until May it's basically Summertime for me.
 
2014-01-06 10:28:53 AM
It's my birthday so my mother would agree.
