Lunes de Infarto.
For me doesn't sound a illness or stress of the people, if you check with detail the phrase, it tend to be colloquial phrase at least in the sense that you are giving it.

As I said before, if you aren't accustomed to work the Monday, then you'll have troubles with the animus state or your possibly won't have much animus for work that day.
And if you boss come toward you and he tell you.

Jorge. I need those reports before of the half day.
Then you turn to be a bad day, as you want to say Un Luned de Infarto or San Lunes.
Or simply you can say, this day is not my day.

Just it's my point.

I understand what you are saying, but your point does not quite match with the usage, as Angélica notes in her previous post. "Lunes de infarto" is used in a different way than "San Lunes".
En la 'Inciclopedia' nos dan esta definición,
Consecuencia de la borrachera del fin de semana, el San Lunes es una festividad que se celebra todos los lunes del año en todo tipo de organizaciones, y se manifiesta en un alto absentismo laboral.

Esto se usa en Bolivia, Chile y Argentina, según la 'Inciclopedia' y yo supongo que estará extendido por otros sitios.

Sí acepto que una persona que esté con la resaca del fin de semana, de pronto esté trabajando un lunes, y ese lunes 'sea de infarto' para ella, pues no está lo suficientemente alerta, y su rendimiento es más bajo... así, puede tener el punto de vista de que 'el lunes es demasiado ajetreado... cuando debería ser un San Lunes, en que se quedara en casa, en la cama...

Pero está claro que ambas expresiones no se identifican, y son sentidos distintos.
Lo propio de la verdad es que se basta a sí misma, aquel que la posee no intenta convencer a nadie.
