You Know It is a Rough Day When….

19 Jul

You know it is probably a fairly tough work day when:

1 – Bad Boss #2 starts sending you all his documents to print because he tells you he “is not connecting,” meaning that you know it is just that his brain is not connecting because he’s trying to do two things at once.

2 – Your head is splitting and you never have headaches.

3 – The thought of fattening, sugary doughnuts doesn’t even spark your interest.

4 – You get caught by an unannounced vendor by the front door of your office and there is not a damn thing you can do about it…but, you aren’t too mean because she gives you a small, nice-smelling thing of lotion….something usually of which you would have thrown at her head, but you are just too tired.

5 – The thought of your unexpected mammogram tomorrow is actually a relief because you don’t have to go into work immediately.   So…..having your boob smooshed between two pieces of freezing glass by a stranger is better than work.   Nice.

Tomorrow – Biting My Tongue

    You should schedule a colonoscopy…they give you anesthesia for that…even better than a mammogram.

    The doughnuts thing is worrying :(. Maybe the boob doctor can check up on your enthusiasm for sugary things too?

    I’m sorry your day is suckier than usual though :(. I’m sending you magical internet aspirin! *bzzzz-sendingaspirin-bzzz*

    I had to laugh at number 5. But I think it’s because you said “boob”.

    I would think that smashing Bad Boss #1 between two plates would be a good thing….

    oh….

    not THAT boob….

    And I agree with Office1 – colonoscopies are the best 30 minute nap i’ve ever had….

    If the doughnuts don’t comfort you, what else to you have? Poor thing!
    And, I hope everything comes back clear after your boob smashing.

    LD, sorry for the boob squish. Hate my annual. Had a friend go to her boob squish … after her left chesticle was in the vise, the machine malfunctioned. It began lowering itself – and she went along unwillingly. By the time the tech got the idea there was a bit of a problem, my friend was squatting on the floor, still attached to machine via lefty. Meh!

    Is this a trick question. Here’s my answer.

    “You know it is a rough day when you find yourself at work!

    I hear ya on the mammogram, too. My last one was a bitch.

    The list of things that are “better than work” would be too damn long. I think it’s better to approach it from the opposite angle. 🙂
