That didn't go very well. I ended up back in bed trying to sleep after such a stressful night at work. I really was close to having a total breakdown. If one of the desks guys hadn't been there to talk and help me out, I probably would have lugged my computer up two flights of stairs and thrown it off the roof.
But I didn't, and other than a wicked stress headache, I'm much more calm today. It's amazing that someone as relaxed and laid-back as myself can get so worked up and stressed out by my computer at work. The combination of a Mac and the DT system we have just is too much for a simple sports clerk to bear sometimes.
I've come up with a novel solution to my problem. I need a member of Congress to simply add a pork project to the next appropriations bill. We're talking $30 thousand in a multi-trillion dollar budget. That's not harmful. This way I can live and blog without being sidetracked by a job and all the stress that comes with it.
