Having A Bad Day?

I had “one of those days” this week. If I was a building, I would have been cordoned off and a large ‘Danger’ sign erected. My biorhythms won’t so much clashing as driving into each other at top speed. The alarm clock didn’t go off as I had unwittingly set it to p.m. instead of a.m.; make-up applied to my damp hot face in a rush slid off south to Australia. The Sat Nav refused to work, and went into a never ending loop of ”City/Postal code, City/Postal code?” Then even it got confused, so we kept each other company in rush hour and got lost together.  Sat Nav woman sounded like she was on speed as she exclaimed “As soon as possible, make a U-turn!” I ignored her, as I was on a motorway at the time so would have been arrested, making the day even worse

It didn’t get better either by the end, as having paid my parking ticket, I left it in the machine, couldn’t remember which car park of 4 rainbow colours I had left my car in, so was staggering around laden with work bags. In my rushed arrival, I had forgotten to look for visual landmarks to give my poor sense of direction something to get its teeth into. On days like this you feel like exclaiming: “Be nice to me I am having a bad day!” If only there was a fourth emergency service to rescue you – I could have done with being whisked off by Superman and carried back home at super-speed above the rush hour car park.

No wonder companies introduced ‘duvet days’ so you can erase bad days from the calendar and stay all snugly in bed until ‘tomorrow’s another day’ arrives. A few years back, ASDA introduced the idea of wearing a hat in open plan offices for when you wanted to get your head down, focus and not be interrupted. I think a second hat is a great idea for when bad days start after you arrive at work, so you can get your head down on the desk and sleep WITH the duvet to prevent any other further mishaps or carnage.  Do you have any anecdotes from your bad days? Do share them and make mine.  I’ll do a 1 hour coaching gift voucher prize for the best worst day.
