Fried?

It’s official, according those those officials who make these determinations, that “workplace burnout” is now a bona-fide disease under the auspices of the  World Health Organization.

I thought a mention today, on what is for most a grueling back-to-work after a long lazy holiday-day, an apt day to bring it up.   The WHO calls burnout “chronic workplace stress that has not been successfully managed” with three symptoms: exhaustion, mental distance and inability to work efficiently all caused by work.  Burnout will become world-recognized by 2022. Until then, try not to recognize it if you pass on the street, I guess.  Just call it a “shitty mood.”   That would look pretty cool on your insurance explanation o’ benefits wouldn’t it?  “Wow, Hon, did you know we still owe a $300 co-pay on that visit last week to follow-up on my shitty-mood diagnosis?”  “Thieves, all of ’em!”  “Damn, another reason that job burns me out, we can’t afford that!!”

I am partial to the “mental distance” symptom.  I imagine you get some mileage out of that one…”Archie out sick today?   No?   Oh…. he’s mentally distant again.  I get that too, especially after taco-night.”  Get ready to burn some sick-days, eh?

Cook is going to get mentally and physically distant from this building, talk to ya tomorrow.  Here’s a link to more, keep smiling…..
