Demob Happy

I suddenly realised I’m suffering from being Demob Happy at work, but I’m trying hard not to let it show. I was interested to read about where this phrase originates here.

The tell-tale signs are:

  • smiling too much
  • smiling wryly when you realise that a problem is coming up in a few weeks that others haven’t spotted, and knowing full well that you won’t be here to deal with it…..
  • throwing things away without conscience

 I’ve done all three today.

Its a fantastic feeling……………

Just 3.5 weeks to go……. Ha Ha Ha!

P.S. Cakewatch is not going well. The last month of celebrating has meant I’ve gained 2lbs. Damn.

    I’m hoping to win the lottery so that I too may come to understand the phrase “demob happy”.

    Are you going to have a huge low calorie celebration when you go? Are you coming to the blinks at my place on 28 July?

    Moobs – no, probably have the full-calorie version.
    And, no to your second point for two reasons: 1) I’ll be on holiday 2) meeting people off the internet scares me. As lovely as I’m sure you all are, I worry that there may be axe-murderers lurking…
