An estimated 10.7 million American employees are expected to skip work Monday following the much-anticipated series finale of the HBO show.

Those who will bow out from their job entirely said they’ll do so to either “celebrate or cope with the aftermath,” according to a survey released Wednesday from The Workforce Institute at Kronos Incorporated.

 

Another 16.5 million employees or so admitted the finale will impact their work day in some manner, whether it be by arriving late, working remotely or being less productive, the survey found.  The bittersweet ending is almost here.
