    Default Stressful time of year

    So I'm told.
    Several times today in fact.

    Our bin man forgot to collect our side of the road yesterday...cause it's a stressful time of year.

    My mums prescription came with an extra box, an expensive collection of items for some person in Auckland, addressed instead to her in Napier...how I asked Zoom, who I could not get hold of and instead txted the recipient of said box, who obviously got Zooms attention and then they rang me.
    Oh it's a stressful time of year, they said

    And then there was, well I won't go into details, I could be here all night but apparently it's a ...guess what....stressful time of year.

    I thought with many people being on holiday or just back, they'd be all relaxed and stress free.

    covid brains.
    its been happening a fair bit for the last year.
    worse now for us being rural because its busy time of year. plus all the townies who have left their brains behind when they go on holiday as per normal.
    the other thing is heat stress, people not sleeping well. being tired is a HUGE cause of issues. people tend to run on "auto pilot" and not focusing on the job.

    I can understand this stress thing. I felt almost sick when the first test was being played. I watched our demise ball by ball as Bangladesh crushed us.

    However, there is a cure for everything. I felt so much better as I watched, ball by ball, our guy crush Bangladesh in the second test.

    I feel so much better now!

    Excuse for not paying attention more like...stress, meh...
    The new phrase....
    How about just saying, oops, stuffed up there.

    The insanity that passes for modern life is always more stressful if you've just had a holiday away from it.

    Yeah, I'm feeling the stress now. Waiting on the cops to contact me about an incident in the weekend. And unfortunately, for me, the stress of recognising I'm stressed adds to the stress.

    It's not that bad....we're not at war, not starving, not experiencing the Black Death.
    It's just a trendy phrase instead of saying, oops, someone messed up.
    Which is what annoyed me, just say, oh sorry instead of this nonsense.
