One Of Those Days
Author: Barbara Goodhew


Having one of those days.
Nothing is going my way.

Make a phone call for medication to be delivered for me.
I'm told, sorry they don't understand me.

So I called my daughter, no answer.
Called my girl friend, no answer.

I called the pharmacy back.
Told the girl to listen and relax.

Made her pay attention to what I was saying.
It worked my medication they are sending.

Sometimes when we are frustrated we get angry.
Being nice and polite doesn't work.

Sorry ...

... to hear you've had a bad day Barb. It's usually the same isn't it when one thing goes wrong after another. I think in some situations if we get angry people will listen more.
