Be Cranky Today

Today is National Cranky Co-workers Day!

Sooner or later we run into a co-worker who is having one of those days. Unfortunately, some folks seem to be having one of those days every day.

The best thing to do with someone having a bad day is to steer clear of them, if possible. I know, I know, some of you think, "But maybe I can make them happy."

No, people are about as happy as they are going to be when they roll out of bed. President Abraham Lincoln said that.

But, OK. I'm willing to give it a shot. If you run into a co-worker who seems cranky today, ask if there is anything you can do. Maybe they just want someone to listen.

However, if they tend to be one of those people who seem to have a permanent case of crankiness, pass them by. Crankiness is a type of negativity, and they can infect you, just like passing on a virus.

I'm all for having a National Cranky Co-Worker day, but not if it turns into an epidemic.

This should be called National Steer Clear of Cranky Co-Workers Day.

Have a big week!
