Put On Your Patience Sombrero

Backstory: I recently started a new job and sent my mom an email complaining about my incredibly strange boss.

Ah yes – plays well with others. Much harder as an adult. As I look back at all the freaks I’ve worked with, its definitely better looking back at the situation than being in the middle of it. Put your patience sombrero on and breathe deep. Some people are truly strange and beyond help. I know this is why they made you do group projects in school – to build your frustration tolerance.

      That is, without a doubt, the best explanation of group projects at school that I have ever seen. I will definitely be passing that one down to my children when the time comes!

      I am currently embroiled in school group projects with multiple groups (the level of frustration not describable;-). This is excellent advise and accurate assessment!

      I needed my patience sombrero today when the stupid pendejos next door set off a cherry bomb under my window at six am.

      With havin so much written content do you ever run into any
      issues of plagorism or copyright infringement? My site has a lot of unique content I’ve either written myself or
      outsourced but it looks like a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet without my agreement.
      Do you know any solutions to help reduce content
      from being ripped off? I’d certainly appreciate it.
