crushing acorns frustrated!!!

I was told on a phone interview that I would be able to transfer to a new job on monday and I was so excited!! No pay increase, in fact I was told that I wouldn't be able to get the annual raise that I would at my current job, but this new job is only 3 miles from my house. Good bye two hour commute each way, hello fifteen minute commute each way. I was so happy.

Now, today, I received an email stating that the decision has not been made. People need to talk, etc. Ugh. Frustrating. Only thing I can do is take a walk and step on acorns.


Green ones are not satisfying. Slight crunch...some won't even crunch when I step on them. Not even with my heel.


Brown ones are EXTREMELY satisfying. Nice, solid crunch and sometimes I am rewarded with a loud, "POP," when I hit the acorn just right. Ahh. Take a walk, crunch acorns, and wait....

I hope your job comes through :)

Totally agree about green acorns...I gave up on stepping on them years ago...

Try stepping on a squirrel if no brown acorns abound :)

crunching acors would be most satisfying to me, too. good luck with the job! how annoying they told you this when it's not even finalized.

Maybe you can relieve tension and anxiety by stomping the heck out of some brown acorns...
