As I’m sure you can imagine, working in the newsroom of a small-town newspaper — where there could be as many as three people all typing simultaneously — can be extremely stressful. Especially when we all send something to the printer at once.
Over the last 16 years, I have developed a coping mechanism to help deal with this pressure-cooker environment. It’s fast, effective and doesn’t require a yoga mat, punching bag or medication. Because I know many of you deal with the same kinds of pressures at your own jobs, and because my editor has left for vacation, I took it upon myself to create a short, self-help video utilizing DubSmash to demonstrate my technique and help others.
Results may vary…
Do YOU have a special technique for dealing with work-related stress? (NOTE: Something other than getting fired…)

Oh my, Ned. You have no idea …
That’s what the liquor drawer is for…
Um, Ned… have you been drinking?
Hmmm… Maybe should start?
Oh no… maybe not… who knows what road you’d go down then…. hmmm… 😀
Or if I’d remember going down it once I woke up.
I think my comment went to your spam Ned. (two links in it) **Sob** No one ever pays any attention. **Sob** ha!
I do’t even know HOW to check my spam!
here’s the main link – see if this works: https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/236x/e5/30/58/e53058419d4fb1c503dc809be58e129e.jpg
Hahaha! I love it!
As an aside i just did a guest post over at Cordelia’s Mom http://cordeliasmomstill.com/2015/06/01/elizabeth-and-ute-guest-post-by-paul-curran/comment-page-1/#comment-11164 If you have the time to drop by for a visit I would be honored.
Heading over now, Paul 😉
Me and Little Dude just watched that several times in a row and laughed our asses off.
Although he keeps saying, “I don’t get it…”
Hahah! Tell Little Dude not to feel bad; I don’t get it either! But who cares? 😉
Whenever I feel stress at the office, I just tilt my head back a little and laugh as though I just heard the funniest joke. And now that they’ve duct-taped me to the chair, I don’t fall over backward nearly as often.
During my 20s, that was my best sex move.
The laughing, I mean. Not the duct tape.
That didn’t come until my 40s…
I loved this so much. Great way to start my morning.
I’m so glad! Thanks, Darla 😉
spontaneous parades are my go to.
By yourself or do you get others to join in your parade? If I was there, I’d march with you. As long as I can have a whistle…
either way is fine, i usually recruit my kinders, who will go along with most any crazy happening. they are my perfect people.
They are pretty perfect while they are little, aren’t they 😉
Then they turn into teenagers…
Exactly! And the boys avoid water like Gremlin’s, too.
It’s obvious you love being parade Marshall. I generally grab the maracas or Tom-toms .
The last time I grabbed the maracas I got slapped. I definitely avoid the Tom-Toms.
It’s all about boundaries and I’d never judge anyone for leaning more towards the Tom toms –
And that’s why you make such a great kindergarten teacher, Beth 😉
Yes. Don’t go. 😉
Ahhhh… if only….!
Doesn’t Hawaii draw you?
I’d settle for a Greyhound to Seattle at this point.
Ha! I believe it!
My oldest office mate is 7. She makes that sound for me.
Haha! As long as someone makes it, that’s all that matters.
NOW YOU’RE MAKING VIDEOS?
WHERE WILL THIS MADNESS EVER END?
I mean… great job, Ned!
Just be glad these are the only kinds of videos I’m making…
You are really rockin’ the Dubsmash, my friend. I’ve tried it and I just can’t get it right. My fave is still the spider….
That’s my wife’s favorite, too. I think she likes the voice…
Yeah. I can totally understand that.
Sounds like you need “laughing gas” LOL!! 😉
