Tell-It-Like-It-Is Tuesday

A few years back, around the time I started this blog actually, I was having my soul slowly sucked out through my ears (between the hours of 9 and 5) at an Accounting Firm. Do you have any idea what it is like to be, if not the bottom rung on the ladder then maybe one or two rungs up from the bottom of the ladder, of a business where your employers are as charisma free as that tax accountant you dread seeing each year? Only I saw them daily. One of the surprising truths of this world is that boring low status jobs can actually be very stressfull. Consider that before you decide to pack in your perks for something less challenging.

Anyhoo, I digress. At said workplace I was friends with a young guy who was actually pretty cool and had a great sense of humour. My Saviour of a sorts. He pointed out one day that a certain fiestiness frequently descended upon me, as if I had been drinking from the fountain of The Truth, As I See It Anyway. Hence Tell-It-Like-It-Is Tuesday was born. Meek, mild mannered me morphed into The Office Big-Mouth. Can you even imagine?

Try it some time, it's very liberating.
