AN OFFICE worker has, following Easter, shifted to a three-day week four-day weekend calendar and is unable to shift back.
Tom Logan of Hitchin believes his biological clock has, after the Good Friday-Easter Monday stretch, reset to a schedule of four days pissing about per week in perpetuity.
He said: “When Will tried to put a Friday meeting in the diary, the room span. I greyed out. My colleagues could only revive me by saying that of course I’d be in my pants playing Xbox by then, because it’s the weekend.
“I can’t accept anything less. It’s like jet lag; my body’s simply physically unable to keep to the working week as was, that our ancestors followed, that is impractical today. I must listen to my body. We all must.
“Will suggested I go part-time, but he’s missed the point. This is the new full-time. At a cellular level, I need my weekends to be twice as long, but still getting all of that money.”
Employment lawyer Helen Archer said: “We’re seeing cases of this everywhere. Ordinary workers whose biorhythms mean they cannot be arsed to work more than three days in a row.
“There’s no cure. With the Jubilee weekend coming, it’s only set to get worse.”
