So I'm hanging out with my buddy the other day after work, and he's going on and on about what a lousy day he'd just had.

"Oh, the phone just kept ringing off the hook and my customers just kept complaining. Wah, wah, wah. And, oh, it took me soooo long to get my spreadsheets to balance. Blah, blah, blah."

And he goes on like this for the longest time, ball-babying about how rough his desk-jockey job is, and then he finally turns to me and says, "So, how was your day?"

"Well, pal, lemme tell you..."
