Monday Morning Is a Bitch!

Tom has noticed that when he takes the girls to school on Monday morning, he can nearly always find a seat for all three of them on the bus.

Why? Because the hard living, non-sleeping Porteños have had their ass kicked by the Argentine schedule (stay up late/get up early). By Monday, almost everyone is calling in sick, or late for work, thereby freeing up valuable seating on the bus!

The poor stragglers who do manage to drag themselves to the bus on time Monday morning usually look like hell and sleep during their commute.

Actually, the evidence of the tough weekend is visible by Sunday morning, when the city is a ghost town until about 2:00 p.m. Pictured above is Las Heras, a nearby busy street, at roughly the same time mid-day on a weekday and on Sunday.
