Alwin Hawkins has a great piece about balance in the workplace.

Look, I appreciate how bad you feel. But try to understand, I was a critical care nurse. I've had patients die in my arms, and brought them back to life. I've had cooling corpses sit bold upright in bed as I was getting them ready for the morgue. I've had patients try to kill me."

Sorry, but splashing a bit of hot coffee on the floor in front of me doesn't bother me.
