“When I hear somebody sigh,
‘Life is hard,’
I am always tempted to ask,
‘Compared to what?'”
— Sydney J Harris
You know it’s going to be a bad day when. . .
•You turn on the morning news and it’s showing emergency routes out of town.
•The sun comes up in the west.
•Your boss tells you not to bother taking off your coat.
•You jump out of bed and you miss the floor.
•The bird singing outside your bedroom window is a buzzard.
•You wake up and your dentures are locked together.
•Your car’s horn gets stuck while you’re following a group of Hell’s Angels.
•You put both contact lenses in the same eye.
•You walk to work on a sunny morning and discover the back of your skirt is stuck in your panty hose.
•You call to pick up your messsages and are told it’s none of your business.
•Your tax return check bounces.
•You put your bra on backwards and it fits better.
•You step on the scale and it says “tilt.”
•You call suicide prevention, and they put you on hold.
