I smile, crack jokes, act like an idiot, talk sheet in an over-the-top way, etc.
Anything to divert attention away from the fact that i want to skin them all with a potato peeler.
And wear their skinned faces as loin cloths, rightside in.



Or find a quite place to think.



But mostly I just go to my happy place.

I love work, it gives me something to do besides surfing the web. It's good to be the boss, but not today. I had what I call an all day sucker. I had to change the barrel on our biggest machine, what a PITA. The worst part is that I don't have anyone else qualified to do this job but myself. At least I was entertained for most of the day.

an appreciation of irony gets me through the day. the corporate bigwigs who never set foot in a store dictate, and management passes the word. so what that if we sell an item, they send a case, and then complain that it doesnt all go up on the shelves? so what if a customer calls us 4 times in 2 hours wanting a single part each time? i get paid by the hour, and if the customers and management want to waste my time, i get paid anyway. i smile, laugh at the idiocy, provide the best service i can, and go home at the end of the day.

Video games at work! The office turns into a kill fest playing Unreal Tournament 2004. Anywhere from 6-10 people play. Helps naming the bots certain names such as Rumor and Boonie. Kind of like picturing someone you know on a golf ball and then smacking the crap out of it.

But a majority of my day was spent riding ATVs, so I can't say it was all that stressful. But there are days.......

I can't imagine the sick things you do (or make me do!) to the "Boonie-Bot"!

What!? You mean you're not supposed to work weekends too? No wonder the office is so quiet on the weekends. Sheesh. Why didn't I get that memo?

I just tell the boss that the aliens just called me and they have a special project that needs my help.
I'll be gone for 3 weeks but will only be gone from work for 2 hours, I'll be back around 4:00 local time.
Oh by the way is there anything I can get you from Epsilon Bootes 4?

Some hot alien women with their breasts on their back. They're more fun to dance with that way.
