Stressful Days

Some days are always more stressful than others, whether it be other people that cause problems or more work than normal, or just that everything happens at once. Today, it was another person that made me stressed. I had to deal with someone who is very difficult indeed, someone who rants and raves as soon as you say something to him, and I'm sure it's partly because he's afraid that someone will notice that he doesn't actually know what he's doing.

As soon as I sent an email earlier today, I had an uneasy feeling that I was baiting a bear. It was a simple, straight forward message, but I guess there's only so many times you can poke a bear with a stick before it turns around and bites you. Today, I got bitten. Well, actually I got yelled at down the phone.

Twenty five minutes I was on the phone for until, finally, he calmed down enough to listen to me. Annoyed? Yes, I was, but somehow I managed to stay calm and got what I wanted.

So. Tonight. I need stress relief: back to running. Yay!


  1. What an unpleasant person to have to deal with. I hope your run cleared away the stresses of the day.

  2. Thanks, RR. It did clear away the stresses of the day, thanks. :-)
