Rebel Monday

I've been at the office approximately five hours now. It's a little after the noon hour and I'm about to go postal on my boss. The back of my neck is all tensed up and I have a serious headache! Ahhh, nothing like good ol'stress and an over-bearing, insensitive, prima-donna boss to get me going on a Monday morning! I finally had to walk away from my desk and decided to take a walk outside. It's unusually freezing in Houston right now (such a tease, it will be back to mid 70s by tomorrow morning!)so the brisk, cold air will do me good. I walked down the block and around the building before finally returning into the building to defrost! As I stepped into to the elevator, I let out a deep sigh. The walk was just what I needed to regroup and rid myself of the negativity and the chaos of the morning. While taking my walk, I asked myself the following questions:

Will the work still be there when I get back? Yes
Will my boss ever be happy and satisfied? No
Will I let him ruin my mood and take away my happy place? Hell to the no!

Uh,uh, I'm reclaiming my day and my good mood. I will do my best to get the job done -as I always do, but I absolutely refuse to let him or the pests aka clients, suck the "cheerful" out of me. It's Christmas time dammit!

Fa la la la la la la la la!

That's the style! Take back your day, take back your life. You can control how irritating people and adverse circumstances affect you. It empowers you when you use your skills to render them powerless!

You go, girl! Many props to you for not just poking the boss' eye out with a letter opener. Don't tell me it never crossed your mind. :)

I went out this morning under the guise of grabbing a coffee and went to see Santa instead. I asked him for a new boss. :-)

Well not really but I thought it in my head. More than once today. Good for you for doing what needed to be done for you.

How is it that bosses know precisely how to be a dementor that sucks the happiness out of the room? It's Christmas! There's no fussy, cranky-crap at Christmas! You effectively snapped that bad mood karma! Good for you! *hugs*

Hahaha, thanks everyone! The rest of my day was still stressful and crazy, but I didn't blow any more gaskets and I didn't poke or stab my boss in the eyeballs like I wanted to! Which is a good thing, what with the whole probably going to jail thing and all! lol
