Susan did something today that she hasn't done since the '80s; she cried at her desk.
The whole thing took about a minute and it didn't even help her feel better. Of course she had to keep a lid on the sobbing or risk being overheard. So, she sniffled, wiped her tears, put on her unhappy face and went about her business.
Don't worry, no one's being mean to Susan or anything rotten like that. She's just experiencing the typical frustrations of someone from whom perfection is expected, who has too much to do and not enough time to do it.
Anybody else have this problem?

When my old boss used to slam the microwave after heating her coffee, I used to imitate her by going into the break area and slamming it harder.

I usually cry at work because I'm actually *at* work and not spending my Powerball winnings.

One time I cried at work alright. I cried at my desk. I cried and kind of snorted and got a little snotty and I cried a little more and then...then I realized...I WAS SITTING ACROSS FROM THE NEW CEO. That was so fun.

It's gotta come out somewhere, right?
