Job Rants Thread – 2/22/2019 – Traditions!

 

Hey, all; Happy Friday-

 

So, I’m skipping lunch today. Why, you may ask? Is it because I’m not hungry? Haha, noo. Is it because I only have 30 min, and consuming any food item larger than an orange forces me to choke it down like a some kind of sweater-vested duck? Often; but not today. Is it because I’m trying to eat healthier? HELL NO. Nope! The reason is, because it’s pay day for me, this week. Payday means a little extra money in my pocket. A little extra money with which I can put towards rewarding myself for another week down.

In my case, it’s ordering myself a tasty, filling Pad Thai. Payday Pad Thai, I call it; because I went to school for four years to hone my Creative Writing skills. In the grand scheme of things, it’s not much; but, as someone whose job doesn’t leave him with a whole lot in the way of downtime, you nurture your little traditions where you can.

How about yourselves? What are your rituals to get your weekends off on the right foot? Is it food, activities, vociferously reading this column?  Let’s make that the topic this week. Of course, if you have no such traditions, or just need to get stuff of your chest, go right ahead.

As ever, have a safe and productive rest of the day, safe trip home, and a great weekend. And remember: If you’re not getting your Pad Thai with chicken and shrimp, you’re getting ripped off.
