WORKERS are dreading the prospect of another three-day weekend so soon after Easter.
The traditional May Day bank holiday has seen millions of employees vow to go into work anyway rather than spend another day at home.
GP Dr Tom Booker said: “A fortnight after the last one, the grating monotony of my job only just settling into my bones, and I’m expected to drop everything and do nothing? Again?
“I love a day off as much as anyone, but enough is enough.”
Account manager Emma Bradford agreed: “It’s just too soon.
“By scattering bank holidays across spring like confetti, the government is confirming the stereotype of Brits as shiftless, happy-go-lucky time wasters.
“What’s the matter with them? Do they think we don’t like work?”
Many have vowed to ignore the holiday, heading to the office to complete vital tasks like reading emails about optimising project workstreams.
Susan Traherne of Bedford said: “I, for one, won’t spend this bank holiday lying in bed all day watching repeats of Murder, She Wrote and finishing off the kids’ Easter eggs.
“But that’s because I work in a shop.”
