Received this E-mail from a colleague today:

> Last week a friend went to a seminar. He gave an example of a coping skill
> for job stress which I would like to share with you. When you have had one
> of those TAKE THIS JOB AND SHOVE IT days, try this:
>
> On your way home after work, stop at your pharmacy and go to the section
> where they have thermometers. You will need to purchase a rectal thermometer
> made by *Q-Tip. Be very sure that you get this brand.
>
> When you get home, lock your doors, draw the drapes, and disconnect the
> phone so you will not be disturbed during your therapy. Change to very
> comfortable clothing, such as a sweat suit and lie down on your bed. Open
> the package containing the thermometer and remove the thermometer and
> carefully place it on the bedside table so that it will not become chipped
> or broken. Take the written material that accompanies the thermometer and as
> you read it you will notice in small print the statement that "every rectal
> thermometer made by Q-Tip is PERSONALLY tested."
>
> Now close your eyes and say out loud five times, "I am so glad that I do not
> work in quality control at the Q-Tip Company."
