It takes so much energy to be

It takes so much energy to be so negative. Not to mention it can shorten your life. To get up everyday and be a grumpy old man is just not healthy.

All went well

But I wonder what would have happened if a call came in for the need of a policeman at the time of directing traffic? Would the chief have gone out? No doubt the detectives were busy on the over abundance of cases. Time for a restructuring. Isn't it ?

Not life long , but rather unfortunately. But of course you wouldn't understand this fact of life because you don't know the mailman well enough so why not downgrade . Feel sorry for people like you.
