Need A Reason To Smile?

I started my day enthusiastically...but somehow, things went nuts and I don't just feel good after a day's work. I was at the office for 9 hours...and I did not take a break...had not eaten anything. Plus, I'm still mourning, remember that POST?

Hypothetically, what do you think is the motivation of a person who wants a copy of ALL stuff I've been working on, when he has NOTHING to do with it. My boss, the Operations Director told me NOT to give him. Period. I was being kind and told him, I can give him his copy when I have finalized it with the Director and when it is approved by corporate. Yet he insist! So I told him is there anything particular that concerns him or that he needs soon...NONE. He wants ALL of it. Just because! WTF??? Now you tell me...

But then, they say, just because you have a not so good breakfast don't mean you're going to have a bad lunch let me go to other good things! Ah! I got another email from a
headhunter and she gave me a list of positions whom she thinks matches with my qualifications. Read as there are a number of companies about to open here and they are opening for several positions which I qualify and I just have to choose! WOOT! So I think I just have to consider their offers now...I had been stubborn for turning so many opportunities in the past...I now know better. That is a reason to smile I guess.

One more thing, a special person is coming! I hope. He is also a colleague but yah know we get along well and I love talking to this guy...makes me forget some of my I'm looking forward to seeing him again. I also asked him to bring me headaches, bring it on! Another smile on face...ah! I just have to count the
Things I'm Grateful For.

How about you...have found your reason to smile today? I'm sure there are lots...

Here is one...

A kindergarten pupil told his teacher he'd found a cat, but it was dead. How do you know that the cat was dead?" she asked her pupil. "Because I pissed in its ear and it didn't move," answered the child innocently. "You did WHAT?!?" the teacher exclaimed in surprise. "You know," explained the boy, "I leaned over and went 'Pssst!' and it didn't move."

Another one? Okay, here goes...

A little boy was doing his math homework He said to himself, "Two plus five, that son of a bitch is seven. Three plus six, that son of a bitch is nine...." His mother heard what he was saying and gasped, "What are you doing?" The little boy answered, "I'm doing my math homework, Mom." "And this is how your teacher taught you to do it?" the mother asked. "Yes," he answered. Infuriated, the mother asked the teacher the next day, "What are you teaching my son in math?" The teacher replied, "Right now, we are learning addition." The mother asked, "And are you teaching them to say two plus two, that son of a bitch is four?" After the teacher stopped laughing, she answered, "What I taught them was, two plus two, THE SUM OF WHICH, is four."

Smiling now? One!

One day the first grade teacher was reading the story of Chicken Little to her class. She came to the part of the story where Chicken Little tried to warn the farmer. She read, "... and so Chicken Little went up to the farmer and said, ' The sky is falling, the sky is falling!" The teacher paused then asked the class, "And what do you think that farmer said?" One little girl raised her hand and said, "I think he said: 'Holy Shit! A talking chicken!'" The teacher was unable to teach for the next 10 minutes.

And we ask why we just love children? They gave us endless reasons to SMILE!

P.S. The
I.T. Guy (aka Yummy) is out of town...he'll be back on Friday. He sent me a text this morning telling me he is worried that people will not sign up for Fun Monday and was asking if the theme he chose was too complex. Honestly, I love the theme, and I think it is easy and fun to if you are interested to know about Fun Monday, kindly visit his SITE and if you feel like taking the challenge, please sign up. Let's give him a reason to smile!

Hooray for lots of open doors. And Psst in the ear of the dude wanting copies of your work. Just tell him your boss said no, and if he should want copies, to talk to your boss. If he asks you why, just "talk to the boss." Gah. I hate people sometimes.
