My career involved plenty of stress, anguish, long hours......blaaah, blaaah, blaaah.....

But, I always carried the attitude that doing what I was doing was my own choice and it would have been my responsibility to find or do something different if that's what I wanted. Probably because of that attitude, most of my memories of wo*k are relatively pleasant and seldom involve bad dreams. I see ex-coworkers regularly because they're great and appreciated friends.

It's soooo sad to see folks who are bitter today over how they chose to spend their yesterdays......
