'Monday detail' for 'mundane detail'

My first eggcorn finding, I hope it will be accepted!

“I found out it was a stupid Monday detail that messed my stuff up; I had typed in newline instead of newLine…”

“I submit that Microsoft always tries their best to make things better, but overlooks some Monday detail that ends up shooting them in the foot. ”

Here are the above two, plus a few more examples:

The last, I suppose it’s more a sort of mondegreen than an eggcorn, but still… Monday’s can be rough so watch out!

Re: 'Monday detail' for 'mundane detail'

Posted. I edited the bit I quoted from you.

I’m aware you posted this one in the comment thread already—they will come back once I’ve worked out some software problems.
