People-With the highly-anticipated series finale of Game of Thrones just days away, fans have already started mourning the end of the hit HBO show — and according to a new survey, that mourning period might last longer than just Sunday night.
A new poll by the Workforce Institute at Kronos predicts an estimated 10.7 million American will skip work the morning after the GoT finale. According to the study, most viewers will either call in sick or use a last-minute vacation day. For those who do make it into the office, the poll suggests employees who watched the finale will arrive late, work remotely or be less productive than usual overall.
Anything for a day off, right? Look, this isn't a blog about Game Of Thrones or how disappointing the final episode ever was...this is simply a statistic for you to read and to judge whoever wasn't at your place of business today...the fact that they didn't show up to work was no other reason than this. To be honest, I was so upset with how last night ended I was thinking about taking today off too...except then I remembered that I'm a Millennial who needs money, so here we are. - @Traceahamilton
