“Sunday is a teacher’s day of rest: the rest of the laundry and grade the rest of the papers”

"Sunday is a day of rest. The rest of the laundry, the rest of the house work and the rest of all the other stuff we can’t be bothered to do on a Saturday” is a jocular saying that has been printed on many images. There are several variations.

“Sunday the day of rest? I guess it is. Rest of the laundry, rest of the cleaning, rest of the two nights ago dirty dishes..feh!” was posted on Twitter by Adrienne Schoenfeld on March 29, 2009. “I always observe Sunday as the traditional day of rest. Traditionally the day when I do the rest of the stuff I didn’t get done on Saturday” was posted on Twitter by Cheese is Mandatory on August 2, 2009. “Sunday is my day of rest....doing the rest of the housework left undone on Saturday.  SWELL” was posted on Twitter by 98 KCQ on September 20, 2009. “Ah Sunday, a day of rest...REST of the laundry, REST of the house and REST of all the other crap I put off on Saturday!” was posted on Twitter by lisa lucas on March 6, 2011.

There is a version for school teachers. “Sunday is a teacher’s day of REST: the REST of the laundry, the REST of the housework, and grade the REST of the papers” was posted on Twitter by Stacey on September 6, 2014. “Sunday is a teachers day of rest. The rest of the laundry, the rest of the housework. The rest of the grading. #teacherproblems” was posted on Twitter by Teacher Problems on January 29, 2017. “Sunday is a teacher’s day of REST: the REST of the laundry, the REST of the housework, and grade the REST of the papers. -Heidi McDonald” was posted on Twitter by The Adjuncts WebSeries on November 12, 2017. It’s uncertain if Heidi McDonald—or someone else—authored the saying.

I always observe Sunday as the traditional day of rest. Traditionally the day when I do the rest of the stuff I didn’t get done on Saturday.

It’s Sunday, the day of rest to some.  And by rest I mean the rest of the laundry.

Sunday again, our day of rest.  And, by rest, I mean the rest of the laundry.
