It's Monday already, and you ask yourself, "Where did the weekend go?"

Even an extra dose of caffeine won't stop you from wishing you were back to Saturday and sleeping in. But, once you get to work and hear about your co-workers' weekend adventures and settle in, sometimes things don't seem quite as bad. Halfway through your Monday, you begin to think you might just survive.


One of my favorite TV shows of all time is The Office. I liked the original U.K. version starring Ricky Gervais as manager David Brent of Wernham Hogg Paper Company, and then really liked the U.S. version with Steve Carell at the helm of Dunder Mifflin Paper Company. Just when you thought things couldn't get any funnier or more absurd, they did just that. Over and over again.

So, the next time you are feeling stressed because it's Monday again, check out these funny quotes from different characters in The Office. They're guaranteed to help you laugh through even your toughest day.
