Alix, my daughters says, I wouldn't need anger management if others would practice stupid management.

Rock, I have that type of backache occasionally too. Good luck with your gig.

PF, naps are your friend and your best weapon in the daily battle.

See my comment to Alix. Also, to quote Forrest Gump, Stupid is as stupid does.

If I tell you, "No, thank you", take my word for it. I don't want any. You don't deserve an explanation as to why. I just don't want any.

I am with you on this one!

If I politely answer a question with no thank you, have the good sense to move on!

If they interrogate me as to why I will quickly come down to their level and give them an explanation that they will never forget!

No really does mean no. I got a call on the phone this morning.
caller:"Can you donate $150.00?"
Me:"no I cannot"
Caller:"Well I understand, can I put you down for $100?"
Me:"no, you don't understand, I said no."
Caller:"yes ma'am, a lot of folks are just giving $25.00. Will that be ok with you?"
Me:CLICK

People who make a living making these calls rely on your automatic reaction to wait for a response after you speak. When I get a call like this, I respond, "I'm sorry, I can't help you." and I hang up immediately after I finish my sentence. Don't give them a chance to keep you engaged in a conversation with the hope of getting something out of you. And if you hear the beginning of their response, don't stop. Hang up. You're not being rude. You're saving them time so they can go harass others.

I have two playing engagements this weekend, and sitting at a drum throne for 4 hours a night isn't the greatest thing to be doing. Advil, do your thing....
Rock, would an armless desk chair work for you? I have one with back adjustments and was able to take the arms off it. Just a thought.

I don't drink. Never have. When I am at a function and a person offers to buy me a drink, I give them the polite, " No thank you." If they insist, I ask, "Are you a drug pusher in a loud enough voice that they take off immediately.
