Embrace Indie Vibes With Ursa Minor And Friends, Catch A Preseason Mavs Game On The Cheap And Welcome Creamer Back To Big D At The Belmont.

Mondays are notorious for being extra sucky. But no one can complain about bad days more than this guy who just found out his ex-girlfriend, whom he totally ghosted, will now be his new boss. The brief of this story is enough to make anyone cringe, but digging deeper reveals that his guy pretty much had it coming to him.

The anonymous writer asked online blog “Ask A Manager” for advice on what he should do about the situation and went on to explain that he didn’t just ghost the girl, he picked up and moved to a different country after a three-year relationship with no warning at all. Now, 10 years later, he realized he would soon be working with her.

As if we needed more information to determine that this guy is beyond flighty and has a huge fear of commitment, the story ends with him quitting the company, leaving her high and dry yet again.

This story doesn’t turn Monday into Friday, but it does make it seem a little brighter, and with all these great events going on, you could turn out to have a really kick-ass start to your week.
