It’s Monday morning, which means you’re either thanking God that you’re kicking off another week at a job you love or sending your millionth prayer for a benefactor.

If you’re fortunate enough to still be gainfully employed of course be grateful; however, don’t let anyone strip you of your right to complain. Complaining is an American past time – like tax evasion and reality TV.
