Everyone around you will be whiny or needy early this week, so you can avoid them if you need to. Whatever happens, don't take it personally: it's not about you. Unfortunately, the trend toward bad behavior continues through friday, though at least people return to joking around, which takes the edge off. If it gets too mean, just walk away. Everything picks up this weekend, and anything you want to get done will finish itself up, as if by magic.
