Stress induced giggles

It's been a long week and I have a case of the stress induced giggles... In fact, my entire department has them! It's the last quarter of our fiscal year, which means chaos in general, but this week has been especially bad (crazy customers, missing FedEx packages, trainers stuck in airports).

By 2 PM yesterday, I was close to rolling on the floor laughing... Really, what are the alternatives? CRY?!?! I refuse to let all the crap here make me cry! The height of work stupidity was when I finished creating our 2010 calendar (yes, I know it's only February 2009, but I already have 2010 training obligations) and Excel SHUT ITSELF OFF as I tried to save. Yep, I love my calendar; I love our facility's computer network; HECK, I love Microsoft. Feel the love folks, feel the love....

I thought that a little sleep and that today is Friday (YAY!) would give the group perspective... no dice, I'm afraid! One of my crew (a sweet, innocent guy that I'll call Mark) wandered over this morning and mentioned that he had read a new study. Lord knows where online he found it - but apparently this study pronounces that middle aged women who work more than 40 hours a week are more susceptible to early onset dementia. He announced this to "the girls" and I with a straight face!! People - I'm 30 and the girls are just about the same age too. We just couldn't contain the laughter. Every time we looked at each other we just started laughing all over again. Ahh... he's lucky that he made this little announcement to us instead of women that are actually middle aged. It could have gotten him beaten before he hits his 24th birthday....

Ah... I can't wait to get out of this place and veg out with my doggies this weekend!
