6 Phases of Work

Source: This was a chain email that I received years ago. Found it again on and it’s just as funny now as it was then. If you’re suffering from career/life burnout, have a giggle, know you’re not going crazy and then look for solutions (seek help).

Phase 1


You are listening to jazz.
Your first day at work is great. Your coworkers are wonderful, your cubicle is cute, and your boss is the best!

Phase 2


You are listening to pop music
After a while you are so busy that you are not sure if you’re coming or going anymore.


Phase 3


You are listening to heavy metal
This is what you feel like at month’s end.


Phase 4


You are listening to hip hop
You become bloated due to stress, feel sluggish and suffer from constipation. Your coworkers are too cheerful for your liking and the walls of your cubicle are closing in. You have started thinking ‘WHATEVER’ about your boss.


Phase 5


You are listening to GANGSTA RAP
After more time passes, your eyes start to twitch, you forget what a ‘good hair day’ feels like as you just fall out of bed and load up on caffeine.


Phase 6


You are listening to the voices in your head
You have built a makeshift door on your cubicle to keep people out, You have a dartboard with your boss’s picture on it in your cube. You wonder why you are even here in the first place!
