This week, I've been reading a book called "Life's Little Annoyances- true tales of people who just can't take it anymore" by Ian Urbina. This book is really funny and humorous.
Thanks, Urbina, for collecting all the stories about how people (just like you and me) to deal with the little annoying things in life.
In his book, he mentioned a guy who doesn't like to see those "motivational posters" in his office, so he started to make some "demotivional posters"--a picture with a quote to show their honest view of life.

I particularly like these two:

"Inspiration---Genius is 1% inspiration and 99% perspiration, which is why sometimes engineers smell really bad"

"Motivation---If a pretty poster and a cute saying are all it takes to motivate you, you probably have a very easy job. The kind robots will be doing soon."

Check out this site and have a good laugh over the break!
Who knows, maybe you can find something for your co-worker's birthday!
