In case you have a case of the Mondays, literally or figuratively, and your giving a damn appears broken: Not to worry. Well, that’s maybe overly encouraging, but at least you can rest assured you’re not alone. Below, we’ve collected some fine examples of workers, in vastly differently industries, just not caring at all. The meme is Not-My-Job and it’s delightful.
