Another Monday Morning.....

My auntie in CA emailed my mom this joke. Enjoy!
My mom had made it deep into Phase 6, and that is why she decided to switch jobs recently.

The 6 Phases:

Phase 1

You are listening to jazz --
Your first day at work is great.

Your co-workers are wonderful, your cubicle is cute,

and your boss is the best!

Phase 2

You are listening to pop music --
After a while

you are so busy that you are not sure if you're coming

or going anymore.

Phase 3

You are listening to heavy metal --
This is what

you feel like at month end.

Phase 4

You are listening to hip hop --
You become bloated

due to stress, feel sluggish and suffer from constipation.

Your co-workers are too cheerful for your liking and the

walls of your cubicle are closing in. You have started

thinking 'WHATEVER' about your boss.

Phase 5

You are listening to GANGSTA RAP --
After more

time passes, your eyes start to twitch, you forget

what a 'good hair day' feels like as you just fall out

of bed and load up on caffeine.

Phase 6

You are listening to the voices in your head --

You have built a makeshift door on your cubicle to

keep people out, You have a dartboard with your

boss's picture on it in your cube, You wonder why

you are even here in the first place.

Before you go, please sign my GUESTBOOK, and stop by my BIG WORLD too, thanks!

So, what phase in your Mom in now with the new job?

Mom has been self-employed since 1987. She is always in Phase 1! She has a great boss! (That's her joke, not ours)

We couldn't see the pictures, JB but we got the message. Phase six is not a good place to be and we hope your Mom is so out of there!! After l2 years at the same florist's job, my Mom hovers back and forth between all of the phases! Just when she think it's time to run away, things get better!


the 4 Bs said...

hi JB, the pictures won't show for us, but it's pretty self explanatory. it sounds like phase 6 is a scary place to be. we hope your mom got a new job and is happier now.

hahah the last phases before Momma left work she had a special "going to work tape".. it woz Megadeaths "no More Mr Nice Guy" and would play it over and over till she got to work..
How bad is that when you have to hype yourself up just to get through the day? hehe

Lorenza said...

Hi, JB!
I can' see the pictures either! But my mom says she knows about those phases!
Kisses and hugs

Hi JB! I'm so glad your mom has a job she likes now. Phase 6 is very scary! Poor Mom.
Bear sure is cute! Puppies can be a challenge. (they are not always as smart as kitties) Seriously though, they just do not have the advantage of a litterbox because they lack the instinct to bury. And the big dogs would need a huge litterbox anyway!
He'll learn. I would forgive that face anything. :)
I hope you kitty girls are adjusting ok. How's PooPoo?
Take care!
Hugs and Smoochies,

We've been away too long--I can't believe we've missed all these fabulous puppy pictures. Be NICE to him!!!!

Though I couldn't see the pictures, the words were enough. If you mom was in Phase 6 she definitely needed to change jobs!!! Hope she's happily in Stage 1 now :P
