I thought putting a punching bag in the breakroom would be a good for stress.

Did you ever have a moment where you just wanted to explode?

You know what I mean...

  • The patient who loves to push your buttons.
  • The boss who doesn't know you exists.
  • The co-worker who keeps calling off.
  • The love-life you no longer have.

We all have been there.

A punching bag in the break room ... I think it's a great idea.

I had a punching bag in my dorm room in nursing school.....filled the bottom with sand...the top looked like Bozo. After a bad day, we'd all come home and wail on the poor clown.
