Watch out for Grouchy People on Tuesday
Get ready to have a tough day at work Tuesday. Why? Because it is officially National Grouch Day. Add that to the fact that people have to come back to work after enjoying a beautiful long weekend and there could be a sour puss or two around the office. Hopefully things around your work space won't be to bad but either way if you see someone losing it at the computer feel free to remind them that its okay it's National Grouch Day.
Work can often make us tense but it is not the only thing that might add to the grouchiness on Tuesday. After all we have the back to work traffic to deal with on the way to work. There is always a meeting or a task you didn't get to on Friday that is looming. And there is also the fact that your are just tired because you had so much darn fun on your weekend off.
So how did this silly day get on to the calendar? Well, you can thank Sesame Street. They want people to celebrate their grouchiness so according to the National Days Calendar folks this day has been celebrated and recognized since 1976. And how do you know if you or someone you know is a grouch? Merriam-Webster's Dictionary defines a grouch as "a person who complains frequently or constantly".
Tomorrow celebrate your inner grouch. Feel free to say what you want about things that bug you. But come Wednesday just be ready to put that smile back on your face.
