National That Sucks Day

If there’s one realization that should make us all feel better it’s the realization that sometimes things suck. Yep, there are times when things just go south no matter how hard we prevent it from happening. That’s just life. You wake up on the wrong side of the bed, end up being late for work, and then forget to pick up something for dinner.

Those are just some of the things that can happen on these “sucky days.” Once a person realizes that sometimes things are out of their control, they at least have a chance at maintaining their sanity.

A holiday that reminds us of that fact is National That Sucks Day. This is a holiday observed on April 15th and lets everyone know that it’s alright to be grumpy. After all, sometimes everything just sucks!
