one of those days redux

Yesterday was one of those days, again. There was nothing in particular, it was just another frustrating, grinding, annoying days where people got under my skin. I’m so sick of bitching, anyone have any tried and true methods beyond counting to ten and going to your Happy (Gilmore) Place?

I got home, played some HL2 until the stuttering started to get annoying, and read a little Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy (I’m halfway through “Mostly Harmless”). Then I said to hell with it, and went to sleep. That was sometime around 7:30. I guess I was over-tired from something, although for the life of me I can’t figure out what that is.

Today’s starting out better, mainly because I went to the gym at 06:30 and worked my muscles to exhaustion. I feel good, but I wouldn’t mind a nap right now. Onward!

  1. You could do what I did at ingenia.

    Make lists of contenders for the “most guaranteed way to get fired, without getting arrested” prize. (The prize, of course, being EI)

    I believe the winner was “Take a shit in the boss’ desk drawer. When she walks in and spots you reading the paper and grunting say ‘Just a minute. I’m almost done'”

  2. I’m not sure shitting in the bosses office won’t get you arrested. Didn’t a guy shit on a plane and get arrested for it? I’m working as a seasonal worker at Costco and am giving serious consideration to telling someone to box their own fucking groceries if they are going to be so god damned picky. I told them last night not to put me at the register anymore, let’s see if they listen today.

  3. Depends if the boss likes that kind of thing or not.

    I was thinking more along the lines of constructive thinking so I would just roll with the punches without chiseling away at my sanity further. Maybe I just need one of those electric muscle stimulators attached to my forehead. Poor man’s shock therapy. That, or an “Internet Presription” for some prozac.

  4. Well I quit today (3 glorious hours into an 8 hour shift). Note to Costco: don’t have your supervisors mentally deflate the seasonal help. They may decide another month of paychecks is not worth being made to feel like dog shit stuck to the bottom of a shoe. Look forward to my slacker’s handbook with a special Costco section coming soon.

  5. If “sanity” is the same as “caring what other people who you don’t respect think about you”, you’re doomed.

    “I was thinking more along the lines of constructive thinking so I would just roll with the punches without chiseling away at my sanity further. ”

    Whenever I hear something like this, all I can thin of is the last scene from Clockwork Orange. “…and I knew I was cured.” The only way to roll with stuff like this is to let the sanity part go and not worry about it. If you don’t fit into the box somebody else has built for you, whose problem is that?

  6. See, I’m not too worried about what other people think. I am, however, sometimes worried about being tomorrow’s cover on the Sun. While murderous rampages are fun to go on in FPS’s, I’ve noticedother people seem to take a dim view of that kind of extracurricular activity.

    That, and I’m tired of being cranky all the time. About the only thing I do is bitch. It’s very draining.

    And pwnzoring people is what Halo 2 is for. Must get online this weekend so I can make coop my bitch.

    Oh, kev. Together we could have ruled the universe. Instead I’ll just have to go back to being your daddy.

    How about this. Try looking for something positive in the sequence of events that have left you feeling cranky. They say when you can’t control the situation, there’s always SOMETHING you can control – it’s your reaction to it. So change your reactions. Look on the bright side for a few days and see if the crankiness problem diminishes.
