It Was A Crappy Day

Updated on October 16, 2015

Mike's Common Sense


Today was kind of a crappy day. You all know what I mean, it was cold, it rained, and nothing at work went right. It was the kind of day you just want to bitch about. We all have these kinds of days, and we all like to bitch about them.

A guy on my crew was in just this kind of mood, when he commented to me that today was a crappy day. Just then a thought occurred to me that I voiced out loud to him. “There are a lot of people in the ground, that wish they had a crappy day like this.”

So, it is, we all have crappy days, interspersed with good ones; but the fact is, we have days, and we should enjoy them all. So, life is not a bed of roses, but it is better than having no life at all. I believe my comment, as morbid as it was, helped brighten the day of my co-worker, and made him think.

I hope I did the same for you.

      LOL muley, I can't help you there.  The gals I know are all in pretty much the same boat.  Besides, you'd have to clear it with your wife first :)

      If I ever get lucky, you'll be the first to know :)

      Trish, join the club. Hmmm a sugar mama, not a bad idea. Where do you go for one of them?

      Yes, I agree. A bad day with a vehicle is better than a good day at work, in my opinion :) Can you tell I wish I didn't have to work? Sadly, I do, not unless I hit the lottery or find a sugar daddy LOL

      No, I got lucky. My tow was free through my insurance, and my mechanic didn't charge me to do the diagnostics. All in all it wasn't a bad day after all. :)

      Hi Trish, you say you didn't have to work? doesn't sound like it was too crappy then. Hope the garage bill wasn't a killer.

      You're right.  If we think of the alternative every time something goes wrong, it would help put things in perspective.  Speaking of crappy days, I had one yesterday.  Headed out to work, turned the corner, and my truck died.  Kaput.  Long story short, towed to the mechanic, spent probably 5 or so hours there only to hear they could find nothing wrong with it.  And so it goes.  The best part of my crappy day was not having to work :)
