Humor for Sressful Days
It was a bad day
After one of my machines got hopelessly screwed up with an unfortunate software "upgrade" I then had to switch to the laptop, which is far more uncomfortable to type on. I began to get mad, of course. This was going to be a bad day.
The upgrade had disabled many features and will probably require a two hour talk with someone on a "helpless desk" a.k.a. help desk. I detest these encounters! Often you are connected to some poor soul overseas whom I cannot understand, a series of "escalations" to a more experienced person, then three or four calls back to get someone who knows what they are talking about.
Reluctantly, I turned off this machine, which in the worst case will have to be reloaded. The all weekend task!
Humor to get over the setback
So I've got to cheer myself up! I think back to recent humorous events.
At a Chinese restaurant recently, I crushed my fortune cookie to find:
If a turtle does not have a back, is it naked or homeless?
Then I think to laughing my head off with my boyfriend listening to YouTube videos about stupid 911 calls. The following one was my pretty good:
A few more jokes
Driving off with a friend to a tooth appointment where I was in pain we were discussing the makes of all the cars around us. It was a boring drive. He then says:
I wonder how many Jewish people buy German cars?
Please, this is no insult to either Jewish or German. I find these rumors that the Holocaust never happened quite frightening. Do people wear blinders these days, like horses?
Finally, one joke on a bumper sticker that is particularly valid in highly congested car traffic:
Unless you are a hemorrhoid, get off my rear!
I hope this article has brought some cheer into somebody's frantic, even desperate life! More likely, you are having a bad day, like me.
Remember, life does have these inevitable moments of inhumane torture, but a smile begets a thousand blessings and karma is real.
