|I tell you, I am living on the edge these days!
In my job, I review budgets and plans for state and federally funded human services. Sometimes it is necessary to deny requests for funds and I have to “comment” siting policies and how I apply that policy to the request. Some requests require identical comment.
One day, I was reviewing a plan, and thought I had copied a comment for pasting into the next line, which needed duplicate “comment” .
Earlier in the day, I had been incredibly overwhelmed and in attempt to find humor and pull myself out of the feeling I composed a silly little e-mail and sent to friends, who of course responded with encouranging thoughts.
The e-mail said: ”Shhhhhhhhhhh….. don’t tell anyone, I have TOTALLY LOST IT…. I am sitting under my desk mumbling and drumming my fingers against my lips going b---b—b—b-b-b-b-b-b. If you send help, make sure they have ice cream, cheeseburgers or alcohol….b-b-b-b-b-b-b-b-b-b”
OOPS! Can you IMAGINE THAT SHOWING UP IN A Federal AUDIT?!!!!!? Federal auditors have a sense of humor don't they? Gees, I hope they do.
I think I need a VACATION!!!
