Sometimes bad luck is averaged out over a few weeks day by day and sometimes its a avalanche of suffering as it all hits on the same day.
A wiser man once said " Sometimes you eat the "bar" ( bear ), and some times the " bar" eats you"

Rough. Like my son says, optimistically, when things don't go his way "maybe next time". I hope you get a week of nice and easy jobs.

You should had a V8 OMG !!!!!Arguing with your Boss is like wrestling with a pig in
After a while you realize that while you are getting
dirty, the pig is actually enjoying it.
It is not exactly cheating, I prefer to consider it
creative problem solving.
