Today was a Bad Day.
Not for any particular reason, but for a multitude of little ones.
I found almost everything that I had to accomplish at work today was dogged by tiny, annoying setbacks. No matter what task I was involved in, I was sure to come across something that would either slow it down or make it just that much more of a pain in the ass to do.
I usually voice my displeasure, but today I didn't. If you looked at each thing that was pissing me off, it would seem like I was being a whiny bitch. It's only when you look at it as a whole and its effect on my day that the reason for my displeasure is clear and understandable.
Every day that I work I like to accomplish a set number of tasks. I list them out and prioritize them. If I don't get that list done by the time my shift is supposed to be over, I'm pissed.
Call me crazy, call me anal, but it works for me.
I saw a cartoon once that said:
"God put me on Earth to accomplish a certain number of things. Right now I am so far behind that I will never die."
That pretty much sums it up.
Back to it tomorrow.
If it's bad again I just might have to stab someone with a pencil.
A dull pencil.
