Two beers and a shot of whiskey will fix almost any bad day!

Re: How Do YOU Recover After A Bad Day On The Job?


perfect thread for me

how do you cope kid?

Its mid february and I should be chilling and relaxing jan thru march are typically "slow" well there is nothing slow happening right now, waiting for the economy to tank so I can get back to my 100 days a year of skiing. Fun is how my life played out, now it's all work. I should be doing paper work this morning but I can't focus and I'm not in the mood

the two weeks in scottsdale in early january feels like it never happened

In the meantime............. I got in the car yesterday ready to blow a gasket and drove to denver and went for a bicycle ride. Unfortunately I was dealing with too many things so it was a short ride, would have preferred to spend 5 or 6 hrs and 70 plus miles riding with a fresh joint to boot, that fully clears the head. Phone off and when you turn it back on you pray that there isn't ten messages and texts that something went very wrong.

thats how I like to deal with a bad day or stress. Bikes and skis make it all go away.

I don't have bad days. At this stage of the game (heading into 43 yrs) I do this stuff because I want to,not because I have to. If the very rare situation pops up that things are heading south,I'll just pull the plug and take the rest of the day off. Like they say in Mexico "manana" .

No sense letting the situation get the upper hand.
