Ninety-six percent of the executives surveyed by Accountemps believed that people with a sense of humor do better at their jobs than those who have little or no sense of humor. Studies have also shown that people who enjoy their work are more productive and creative, in addition to experiencing greater job satisfaction.
Growing up in a household that watched a lot of TV, I probably saw every episode of Married with Children. If you want a good laugh on Labor Day, you can click here to watch how Al and Peg Bundy spend theirs stuck in traffic mere feet from their driveway. Make sure and watch Al's speech at minute 18:48 for some priceless Americana. To quote a portion:
"What we can expect is that on our one lousy, stinking day off traffic can move us to our lousy, stinking, pathetic destinations. Our polluted beaches. Our burning forests. Our wheezing grandmas. To our family barbecues with Uncle Otto and his runny eye. But does the highway department prepare for us? Are they out here helping us? Are they out there in front of us by that first damn car that caused this traffic jam saying, 'step on the gas you moron - let the 20 million people pass'. They are not. Why? Because they don't care. And that, my friends, is what really reeks."
We'll be back with more Strong Town blogging after the holiday. Make sure and enjoy your weekend and your job when you get back.
