Flying Monkeys and Pink Hairy Balls

Life at work is always interesting. At times it is frustrating, other times it is very rewarding, while even other times it is very exciting. All that being said however, it is always busy. I don't complain about that part however, as I have a moto ......... "If it's not busy it's boring, and boring is bad!" Over the past week or so, there has been both frustration and lots of excitment and laughs, so I have come up with a list of the top 5 frustrations and the top 5 best things for the last couple of weeks.

Top Frustrations:

5. Missing Emily and Elizabeth's year end concert due to a business meeting.
4. Coming back from a weeks holidays to a month of work.
3. Being misquoted by the media.
2. People who have trouble thinking outside the box and outside their own little world (ie: "that's the way we've always done it" or "that's not my job"............... WELL, IT'S NOT WORKING, SO STOP BEING SO NARROW! AND IT'S MY JOB TO CLEAN A TOILET IF THE REGULAR PERSON IS OFF SICK, SO IT'S YOUR JOB TOO!)

AND THE NUMBER ONE WORK FRUSTARTION FOR THIS PAST WEEK IS.............................

1. People who won't take responsibility for their own actions (sometimes I think our clients can teach some staff a thing or two).


Top Best Moments:

5. Finding 2 professors in 1 week who are willing to supervise me for some research.
4. Receiving a "QUEEN" crown via courier from the staff of one program.
3. The deep voiced monotone "Happy Birthday" serenade from Todd over the intercom.
2. Chocolate, Chocolate and MORE Chocolate!!!!!

AND THE NUMBER ONE TOP BEST WORK MOMENT FOR THIS PAST WEEK IS ....................

    If you've got time for Flying Monkeys and Stomping on Pink Hairy Balls during work hours, you clearly don't have enough work to keep you out of trouble! LOL!

    Don't let the boss catch you.

    Wait a minute - you're the boss!

    No, honest.........it's exactly as I say, some of the best moments at work are the flying monkeys and stomping on pink hairy balls. It's even better when it's flying monkey races, and then taking the stomped on pink hairy balls (that are now deflated) and using them for earings.

    Sounds like a case of the inmates running the asylum. :-)
