Yesterday, I had one of those days where everything seemed to go wrong, including
- lots of trouble locating my reserved parking space for my in-person Monday work at the medical center,
- temporarily losing my pager,
- arriving late despite leaving plenty of time to get there early,
- being continually and inexplicably locked out of using the computer at work, which I need for almost every aspect of my job as a psychotherapist,
- not receiving an important email that resulted in problems with one of the insurances I take,
- not being able to locate information needed to fill out a form to rectify the insurance problem,
- witnessing the pain of many people who were dealing with way more than just one of those days, and
- confronting all this with a minimal amount of sleep the night before.
When I was on the phone with a help desk person, who was baffled by why I kept getting locked out of using my computer, I told him I was having one of those days. I wondered if he was having one of those days too, but this was one of those conversations where only one of us was doing much talking.
Now I’m writing this wondering if I’m going to have one of those days again today. Here’s one of my thoughts about one of those days — they are much more bearable if there is only one of them.
So many people all over the world are having one of those days, over and over again.
Let’s see how many of my photos reflect one of those days.
Here’s “One of Those Days” by one of the greats, Weird Al.
Consider leaving one of those comments about this one-of-those-days post, which would make my day.
Even when it’s one of those days, I’m grateful to get another day with people like YOU.
