IJMC Job Appreciate Tip

                     IJMC - Job Appreciate Tip

I think everyone in the working class has had a "take this job and shove
it" day. If not, I would like to know if today was your first day on the
job. Most of the days are good...but there are those days where you pull
out the emergency beverage and throw a few rockets at coworkers in Quake
3. Or some other stress relief, like banging your head on the wall or
drinking profusely. This post should help you find another method of
stress release, one which is a little safer for you than the
aforementioned banging of head on wall.                            -dave

When you have had one of those TAKE THIS JOB AND SHOVE IT days, try

On your way home from work, stop at your pharmacy and go to the section
where they have thermometers. You will need to purchase a rectal
thermometer made by *Q-Tip.  Be very sure that you get this brand. When
you get home, lock your doors, draw the drapes, and disconnect the phone
so you will not be disturbed during your therapy.

Change to very comfortable clothing, such as a sweatsuit and lay down on
your bed. Open the package and remove the thermometer.  Carefully place it
on the bedside table so that it will not become chipped or broken. Take
out the written material that accompanies the thermometer and read it.  

You will notice in small print the statement:

"Every rectal thermometer made by Q-Tip is PERSONALLY tested."

Now, close your eyes and repeat out loud five times:  "I am so glad I do
not work in quality control at the Q-Tip Company."  "I am so glad I do not
work in quality control at the Q-Tip Company." .........
