    I pat-tied out 50# of hamburger this afternoon.The owner said to me today 'You are the most patient person I've ever seen do that'.
    I said 'you wanna hear a joke? What is the difference between Transcendental Meditation and me pat-tying out burgers?
    She asked me what.. and my reply was '$12.00 an hour'.

    That sums it up for me to. Unhurried prep work is the ultimate meditation/stress reliever. Now, hurried prep work, that is a whole different animal. Sadly, in my last days in the industry, any prep I had to do was usually the latter. However, it is still a nice meditation at home.
