Earlier this month, I walked into my office and picked up a five-page document that had been placed in my inbox by one of my employees. The pages were stapled together and the first thing I noticed was that only one end of the staple had gone through the stack of papers, while the other end was crushed and clumped together on top of the first page. This was the third time in two weeks that I was given a document that had a staple that was crushed on one end.
I’m in a bad mood today (Monday, November 22). I’m Irritable. Angry. Part of my problem is that I’m not feeling well (headache, exhausted, stomach cramps, cold symptoms). On a normal day I have trouble practicing patience, but when I’m not feeling well I turn into a bear. On days like this, I’m better off staying away from other people, especially nitwits.
Last Monday morning while I was driving to the office, I turned on the radio to listen to the morning news. The big story of the day was the death of Robert Byrd, the record holder for longevity in the United States Senate. Byrd died at the age of 92, and was a senator for the state of West Virginia for 51 years.
