Most of us should know Peoples Champ, he's been on the Mane for a while and is a loyal member of the Bronco's fan base. He's one of my bestest good buddies and the guy had a trainwreck of a day at work yesterday (a bunch of customers going after him for stuff he could not control at the factories).

Long story short, it's got him down, so I figured we could all share some shi**y/or funny stories we've had at work, and bring our buddy back up to game-ready condition.

I'm kinda going through something similar myself.

To make a loooooong sotry short, I'm an art director and we were given poor quality images for a catalog. We told the customer they were poor quality and even sent them a test print showing them they were poor quality.

However now that the project is nearly complete and they are viewing the final proofs, they are complaining that....you guessed it... the images are poor quality. Simple stuff but it drives me crazy.

When we got back from Iraq, one of my best friends and old roommate hung himself.

Other stuff trivial yet?

I just went to the vending machine to get a granola bar for breakfast, and you guessed it... out of granola bars.







I live a small life.

Sorry to hear that sir, people talk **** to me all day at work.

One time a customer wanted to make the short drive down here to kick my ass over a part we didn't have for 4 weeks!

IF YOU ARE EVER FEELING DOWN HEAD OVER TO WWW.FMYLIFE.COM

good stuff....here's some tidbits


Today, I drove to a job interview. I had to sneeze, but because I was driving on the highway, I didn't let go of the wheel to cover my mouth. I didn't know the sneeze was a "productive" one until I was sitting in the interview, looked down at my new blouse and saw the giant lugie sitting there. FML

Today, I submitted a vacation request to my manager and it was approved. I came back from lunch and was informed that I have been let go. FML

Today, at a strategy session my manager displayed a flow chart of his employees. I wasn't included. Apparently I had been fired and they forgot to tell me. FML

Today, my boss fired me via text message. I don't have a text messaging plan. I paid $0.25 to get fired. FML

It's definitely all perspective, but everyone's allowed to have a bad day.

Every day seems like the last these days. I run the community relations for a publishing website, and getting our tech department to do anything to fix problems is like pulling teeth... with no drugs... on a Doberman.

Then I go back to our writers and take the brunt of their anger, as if I'm not trying to help them. Good times!

In varying degrees of difference, we all can agree a bad day is a bad day. My personal belief is if life hand you paperjams, make paper footballs.

Sorry to hear about your friend, but please don't ask humans to not get frustrated over day to day things just because worse things can happen. We have all lost people close to us.

Yes it is. Keep your head up and just remember that 99% of everything worth worrying about, you can never see coming anyways.

Crazyhorse is terminally ill.

Vicktor Frankl was a concentration camp prisoner who was able to find a reason to live in the darkest of circumstances.

Also, at least you aren't a Raider fan.

After buying a house you'll be able to write off your interest on your principle on your federal income tax. Change you deductions on your w-4 so the Government takes out less each pay period.

Obviously consult a professional. There are federal guidelines that will allow you deductions based on being a (If you are) first time homebuyer. You'll have to do the math. So when I bought my house I was claiming 1 on my w-4. After a rise in monthly output for mortgage payment I started claiming 2 on my w-4. By deducting your mortgage interest on your taxes you offset the change on your w-4. Do the math though

I would also recommend taking a homebuyer course. If you state has a housing authority you should be able to get a free class. Also ask your mortgage lender in you can see a package on a 100 percent 30 year fixed mortgage with lender paid mortgage if you aren't putting anything down. I did this, now you may a little more in interest, but it should be a big deal unless you are going to see the full 30 years.
