If you're a florist that works that kind of schedule, does that make you a flowery twat?

This new kind of work schedule has become so popular, it's given rise to a crude abbreviation.

It's an acronym, made up of the first letters of the days of the week that these employees are in the office, that forms a slang term for female genitalia: Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.


So the headline and this immediately bullshiat makes it sound like the article is going to be about this crude abbreviation, its origins, who's using it now, what people think about it, etc. Instead, this turns into a generic article, basically a re-hash of the other 12,654 articles exactly like it published online and in other media venues within the last, oh, couple of months. Just a dry, boring, nothing new at all look at what's become a very well documented post-pandemic trend. So good job on the successful troll, Danielle. Your tired bullshiat scored.

Perhaps she's jealous? A Career Underperforming No Talent writer is probably required to be on-site if someone is going to employ her. Perhaps she should be careful because someone might possibly use an acronym for her as a joke right back?

I never work Mondays. Does that make me a half-Twat?

/four 10-hours days FTW

I might put in 5-10 hours this week.

I hate to disagree with PN, but we must remember this is the CBC, the public broadcaster of Canada.

The entire article's very existence might be just an oh-so-very-Canadian way to say: "I think people who work-from-home on Mondays and Fridays are Twats."

oldfarthenry: Callous Urban Name-calling Tyrant says what?


A Career Underperforming No Talent writer says what?

A Dense Idiotic Cretinous Kvetch angry that some people don't need to go into the office much of the time isn't any better, of course.

100% the writer of this article is being passive agressive with a coworker.

Stop trying to make Wednesday, Thursday, Friday (WTF) happen.

Tbh that'd make her pretty awesome.

Imagine writing an entire article, getting it through editors, and getting it published, all so you can lowkey call your co-worker a name publicly and not get in trouble.
 
2022-07-06 6:44:47 PM  
Also it's even funnier if it's totally not a thing and is an entire article written to explain to a co-worker that "oh no no no, THAT's not what I meant when I called you a twat!"

these people use Twatter (rated X) instead of Twitter.

nooooooooooo

you have it all wrong.

the way to do it is to own enough company stock so that you can live off other people's labor and have all the free time in the world.

THAT's the ticket.

For most of my adult life I've used R for Thursday to differentiate it from Tuesday's T, and it's not like I invented it, so this just seems kind of contrived.

Didn't read the whole article. Did she account for the fact that most of our stat holidays are on Mondays and Fridays? Parents may also take a day off for Pro D days, which are usually on Fridays ad well.

We always called them Citiots growing up but T.W.a.T's also works amazingly also.
Entitled Rich Farks from the GTHA who have a generational property in Cottage country who ignore the property 90% of the year but "Damn it, ITS MA RIGHT TO RIDE MY BICYCLE ON NARROW, DANGEROUSLY WINDY COUNTRY ROADS" cuz *sHaRe Da rOaD*  as I, the cyclist ignore all rules of the road, ride side by side and will cry like a BIATCH if anyone comes within 10 feet.
They also like to think their proptery extends all the way to the waters edge, not knowing thats not how it works.
Just becuase the lake level goes down, doesn't mean you get FREE LAND!!.
