Back to the Grind

All good things must end, including vacations, and so today it was back to work. I was fairly well-rested and could feel the absence of stress when I got to work. In retrospect, I realized that I had felt moderately stressed before going on vacation. But it seemed that today was going to be a pretty good day, at least if you define "a pretty good day" as one in which a person has no desire to throttle anyone else.

That lasted for all of half a day. Alas, the restorative powers of a short vacation do nothing when it comes to dealing with the human foibles of others. The throttling desire returned, although somewhat mutedly compared to a couple of weeks ago. My hands did twitch a bit a couple of times, though. I must work on controlling my reflexes better.
