I know what you are thinking – Mummy Marbles is writing about Poo again.
No, actually. Which is rather unusual for me as Poo is rather at the forefront of my life right now – or rather my Littlest One’s penchant for having one anywhere other than in the toilet.
Today I am writing about Work.
I thought I would share some Coping With Work strategies that you can easily apply to home/family/life in general.
I work in an Office where it is very loud, very stressful , very sweary and there is a lot of pressure. Sometimes, the only thing that makes it better is when someone goes out for Donuts.
Otherwise – we have The Flush Method
It basically goes like this –
Aggrieved person –
‘….Aghhh (insert name here) is driving me mad! Who does he/she think she is? This is ridiculous, how am I suppose to manage this and deal with everything else, I’m supposed to be at such a place by 11am and there just isn’t enough time etc etc ‘
The rest of us
‘…Use the Flush. Flush them away, flush , flush, flush them away. Pshhhhhhhhh’
Then we all put our hands in the air and swivel our fists in the mock action of flushing the toilet.
I appreciate that this all sounds faintly ridiculous, but it works. For several reasons, it reduces the tension, it is a bit of fun and it creates a bit of camaraderie.
And Laughter is better than Tears.
Something/Someone getting on your nerves today? Flush it away. Flush Flush.
You will feel better. Promise.
