GALLATIN COUNTY, MONTANA — Gallatin County officials have announced a new initiative aimed at helping residents navigate the dreaded Monday morning small talk. Starting next month, the county will launch a “Weekend Chat Hotline” to provide locals with a rundown of exciting weekend activities that they can use to impress their colleagues.

“Let’s face it, small talk is hard, especially on Monday mornings,” said a county spokesperson. “We want to make it easier for residents to come up with interesting things to say about their weekends.”

The hotline will be staffed by a team of “weekend experts” who will be on call from 7 a.m. to 9 a.m. every Monday. Residents can call in and receive a personalized rundown of fun and exciting weekend activities that they can use to spice up their Monday morning conversations.

“We’re talking about everything from hiking and skiing to brewery tours and farmers markets,” said the spokesperson. “Whatever your interests are, we’ll have something for you.”

The initiative has received mixed reactions from residents, with some applauding the county’s efforts to make small talk easier, while others criticize the move as a waste of taxpayer dollars.

“I don’t need a hotline to tell me what to say about my weekend,” said one resident. “I’m perfectly capable of coming up with my own small talk.”

Despite the criticism, county officials are confident that the Weekend Chat Hotline will be a success.

“We think this is going to be a game-changer for Monday morning small talk,” said the spokesperson. “So go ahead, give us a call and perfect your weekend chatter.”
