Ah "Misery". The exaggeration is bad enough. The selectiveness (of who is entitled to misery) is even worse.

The sodding Standard is always on about road works- "misery for drivers". You know what, take a fucking tube if it's that bad. Or maybe a bus. Because bus passengers are never supposed to be miserable. We just sit there and lap up those traffic jams. Because we're losers just riding around for cheap entertainment. Hell, they should charge us more for getting warm on TFL's heating.

The misery can set in earlier, however, and on Sunday December 4 last year, just 21.6 per cent of people said they were happy

No. I won't have that. The most depressing day is later on in the month when the Mail dusts off its archives and resurrects an article about a boffin from a red-brick university needing a fillip to his career and has worked out a complex formula that pinpoints the third week of January.

Dr Cliff Arnall, of Cardiff University, came up with the date using a formula to illustrate the various emotional factors at play.

It reads: [W+(D-d)]xTQ MxNA and takes into account six factors likely to have an emotional impact at this time of year.

These include the weather (W), debt (D) (minus the amount of money to be paid on your next pay day) and the time since Christmas (T). Then there is the time since a failed attempt to quit a bad habit (Q) along with general motivational levels (M) and the need to take action to have something to look forward to (NA).

Dr Arnall said the formula results could vary between individuals. But he believed January 24 would work out as the lowest point for many.
