Grumpy and negative people are more efficient than happy colleagues

If this is true then newspapers should be the most efficient places on earth! I just finished a book that gave an inside look at how news and sports departments in a paper worked during the 1980's. It seems like there were a lot of grumpy drunks people staffing those departments back then. I'd rather work with a grump than some idiot that walks around with a stupid smile plastered on their stupid face all day long. I should probably explain here that it's been three weeks since I had a cigarette. I'm a little testy.

I pride myself at being the most efficient person I know. I hate it.

Good point, cindy. If one more grinner tells me to "have a blessed day" I will smack her.

Ands tay off my lawn!

That would make Harry Reid a service wizard.

I think they got it backwards. I'm grumpy and negative because I'm busy being efficient. Happy people aren't doing any work.
