At Green Acres this week, and next, pinch-hitting. It makes me a little grouchy. I gave a little thought to the various contributing factors, and have tried to assign relative percentages:

The 118 mile round-trip commute: 9%
The 5:20am alarm clock: 12%
Using a Windows machine all day: 21%
Problems that have no solution, yet continue to consume many people-hours of discussion, even after seven years: 18%
The lack of a place for staff to buy some lunch: 11%
The "prison-style" toilets and sinks, even in the staff bathrooms: 5%
False fire alarms: 6%
The one or two patients, at any given time, who have the potential to loosen my teeth or break my neck: 17%
All the rest of the patients: 3%

Hmm. Does that add up to more than 100%? Well, that's how the math works at Green Acres.

Ok, I gotta ask now, what the hell are prison style toilets?

No lid or even seat; i.e., nothing that can be taken off and used as a weapon.
