It’s Friday, and according to Google, it’s also Cranky Co-Workers Day. Many people work in an office with slightly overbearing co-workers, and I’m happy to say that it’s definitely not the case here at FT Adjusting! We’re lucky enough to work in a relaxed office where the people are good-natured and friendly. There’s banter galore and more smiles than you can poke a stick at.
Cranky Co-Workers Day, according to this particular website, is a day in honour of all the complaining and just plain cranky co-workers you have to endure all year. This is the day to let them go with it and enjoy their miseries. Sounds enticing, doesn’t it? Fortunately, this is one holiday FT Adjusting won’t be celebrating.
There’s someone in the office who knows a thing or two about positivity. Our very own loss adjuster Teddy Matailevu, was born and raised on a small Fijian island of around one hundred people. On an island that remote, with limited electricity, running water and no technology, your perception of positivity is dramatically altered. Teddy describes the island as paradise. It’s untouched land that takes fifteen hours by boat to travel to. On his island, the sea is teeming with life and the ocean is every colour imaginable. Most people he takes there don’t want to leave.
*Sigh* As enticing as that daydream is to slip into, we’ve got to snap back to the office. Because it’s Friday, and somewhere, somehow, co-workers are finding ways to become cranky. If only every office could be like the FT Adjusting office. If that’s the case for you, please feel free to use that fantasy as a coping mechanism. Just picture a white sand island, palm trees blowing in the breeze, the smell of salt and firewood in the air…it’s easy to slip away. Please note that FT Adjusting is not responsible for any cranky co-worker repercussions that may occur.
