TODAY IS CRANKY CO-WORKERS DAY
Every office has them, the negative Nancy or Doubting Thomas, the one that no matter how the state of the office is improved, always has something negative to say. Then there are those that, no matter how helpful you are or nice anyone is to them, they’ll just snip your head off and hand it back to you on a plate.
Cranky Co-Worker Day is the perfect opportunity to just let it all out, and maybe give yourself a break from the sunshine and coconuts attitude you tend to carry around with you. Sometimes its worth it to just stop being a nice person for a day, and grumble at everyone and everything. Cranky Co-Workers day celebrates that little dose of freedom.
