Bunker up for hump day.

Wednesdays. Hump days. It's amazing how Wednesdays bring out the worst at work, are generally the most crazed... hustling forward for Friday or Monday deadlines.

I thought I was having a tough, long workday developing.

But then I went outside for a break, and saw the following:

Guy in his company van, clearly upset and frazzled because a nice NYPD officer is writing him a ticket. Not sure if it was for double-parking, running a red light... dunno. But the guy is already NOT having a good morning.

Cop finishes writing the ticket, and goes back to his scooter to start writing a double-parking ticket for the truck behind him. Van guy puts the ticket away, shifts the van into drive, and pulls out... right into a cab in the next lane.

Cop didn't even have a chance to take a step towards the other truck.

So, my day, while very busy, will certainly not be that bad. I lift my cup of coffee towards the working man in the Fire Protection company van. May you get through this day, and have a good beer when you get home.

For whatever it's worth, my day has been pretty darn good so far. The people at the new job are being nice and I'm starting to get an idea of what I was hired to do.

I too lift a cup the man in the van and wish him a good evening and better tomorrow.

The only way that man's day could have gotten worse was by dooring a messenger.

I don't drink coffe but my water bottle is up in his direction.
