How to Beat a Bad Day Before It Starts?

It often seems like the moment a bad day begins there is no way out of it—we’re just doomed to failure until it ends. But it does end, and trick to making that happen a little sooner involves one part “time travel” and one part humor. Here’s how to beat a bad day before it starts.

The False Start

A bad day generally begins with a false start, or even a series of them. You might get up in the morning, get going a little later than you’d hoped, and then when you’re rushing out the door you get to your car and realize you’ve forgotten something. You need it. You head back. You start driving, rushed, and then realize you’re out of gas. You exit the highway but you don’t know where the nearest gas station is. You search big streets and finally find a gas station. You end up overpaying. You’re definitely going to be late today. The gas pump doesn’t accept your debit card because it’s a piece of crap. You have no cash. You have to use the ATM. The ATM is one of those slow ATMs that still uses a dial-up mode. Wait, dial-up, seriously? I DON’T HAVE TIME FOR THIS CRAP!!
