It’s the little things…

All 3 trouble-makers are absent on the same day.

Sometimes it’s the little things that turn an ordinary day into a good one.

Normally, I practically have to carry a whip and a chair into my year 8 class to keep them quiet and able to learn. But today? Three boys were away.

I was able to read ‘The Outsiders’ to the class without a single interruption.

I love my job today!

Anyone have any other ‘little things’ that make an ordinary working day seem special?

    Had one of those moments on Tuesday! My department has an assigned Customer Service Representative for a vendor we work with regularly, and I’ve struggled with our CSR for 3+ years with their consistent incompetence. Found out our CSR was reassigned, and we got a new one. I was so happy, I flossed (the dance, not my teeth) in front of my boss, and I’m 34.

      I had to google what the Floss Dance was!!!

    A day when the computer doesn’t play up could be a good day.

      This is why I’m so glad we have an IT support team at work!

    A day when none of the patients arrive late to their appointments! It makes a *huge* difference when the flow of the day isn’t disrupted this way.
