No matter how much you deserve a bonus, the start of the week is not the time to be dropping hints. You're better off making sure you don't drop your coffee. You'll be doing a million things at once. The fast-forward blur of Monday and Tuesday slows down to a normal pace on Wednesday and Thursday. You may even have enough time to be social midweek (what a luxury!), and by Friday, you're in bona fide slow-mo. This gives you plenty of time to ponder your future. The weekend, especially Sunday, is ideal for goal setting.
