    When you have cycled home from work and you are still grumpy with a simmering internal rage. Yesterday did not go well at work !

    When your “boss” gets his lackey to ring you to say he doesn’t believe your electrical test results so you sit in the works van with approx £100K of test equipment in it, at the local harbour wondering if you should roll the van down the slipway……..

    when you just carried 20 crates of food up to the 3rd floor, including 50 kg of bottled water, really trying not to be rude,to a great big fat woman who claims she has a bad back(on account of her obesity),and when you get back to the depot the manager and his assistant are waiting for you, ‘a customer called to say you were swearing at her’

    My wife came home from work last night and stripped of to her knickers on the patio.

    Thought it was going to be a good evening, but it turned out she’d had a similar day to the prison office friend of the OP. She’s a nurse… 😯

    When you get home 15 minutes late because the brand new XT rear mech you fitted yesterday is bent and causing the chain to skip between gears. (As when you changed the tyre last night after indexing the derailleur it was late and you forgot to thread thread the chain round the pulleys).

    That printer thing actually happened to me once.

    How did that printer thing happen? Surely not just from dropping a toner cartridge?

    When the last flight out to Tassie that I’m booked on is pushing back as we come into the gate next door.
    Or if I’m in the office when I slump into the seat at the bar downstairs and look pissed off until somebody hands me a beer

    Last Thursday. It was definitely last Thursday. One of my last bad days at work as it was so bad I resigned. Now to use my 3 month notice period to work out what I do next………

    I think most of the damage is done when you realise it’s going, going, gone and then try to catch it, the spinning and twirling as it smashes into the ground gets the toner *everywhere*.

    Have watched our printer man do it once. Mess was nowhere near that bad, but he was black to the waist and the printer room cleanup took 3 days, and one new printer (apparently getting toner all over a printer when it’s running is really really bad for it.)

    Shit day at work.
    When the test car makes a funny noise whilst stopping, then smoke comes out from under the bonnet.

    Or a piston tries to come through the bonnet.

    …when I didn’t get the work done I was supposed to and have more work added by the end of the day (this is pretty much a normal day, they’re all shit)

    A bad day at work usually starts with being woken up in the middle of the night because something is broken.

    But I work in IT, so none of it is as bad as being vomited/shat/etc on.

    when you realise the bad day was actually ‘yesterday’ but you’re still here trying to sort out the clusterf*ck

    When you’re 5 minutes from going home after 7 days straight at work and someone does something so monumentally stupid that your day is extended by a further 90 stressful minutes, followed by a paperwork exercise akin to rewriting the Encyclopedia Britainica.
