Today, I was running a meeting feeling very stressed. I grabbed my stress ball out of my bag, squeezing it vigorously throughout the meeting. When I stood up to talk my stress ball exploded all over my new black suit and the desk. So much for relieving stress. FML

This is why you should get the foamy sponge kind next time.

That's the problem with you women -- you have to buy your stress balls. We guys have a built-in pair that we squeeze during stressful meetings (and dates, for that matter) and have a natural limit switch that tells us when were doing it too hard. This mode of stress relief does have the unfortunate danger of also messing up a black suit.

I think that was the point.

Oh my god #4 I can't breathe

That's what she said.. lol

Replace the words "stress ball" with the word 'penis' then LOL. You are officially immature. :D

I wasn't aware that stress balls could explode

hahahahahahahahahahaha

76 don't u mean penis?

Some stress balls are made more like balloons. Filled with flour, or similar powder .

Mild suck. Try a wad of silly putty next time, or if you want to pretend that you're more 'grown up' than that, get a kneaded/clay eraser from an art supply store.

how did it explode

Or just learn to get over yourself, ffs. Why are meetings ran by a chick who can't even get her shit together anyway?

exactly! Having a meeting run by a woman who is scrunching a stress ball? Loss of authority. Loss of respect. Loss of any position of leadership official stance provides - as personal values arent lending much to that arena if you get stressed over meetings and their content. Or even about personal issues. Toss. Go back to the kitchen. Thats a woman's forté.

Umm... stress is perfectly normal and everyone feels it at some point.

I agree with 7 full and wholeheartedly. now make me a sandwich.

You deserve it. One, what are you doing in a business where you can't handle a meeting without a stress ball? Two, what the hell compelled you to get one filled with a black liquid? There are ones filled with sand, or made of silicone, foam, whatever. So, good job, and man the fuck up.

OP never said the stress ball was filled with a black liquid. OP is also a woman, btw.

If she's a manager/proposing something/etc., then of course she's going to hold a meeting. Also, stress happens often to people and they handle it in different ways (a stress ball is actually better than, say, punching walls?), so acting macho and saying 'man the fuck up' is only making you seem like a jackass, no lie.

Dude.. Stress balls have rice in them. Make one with rice and balloons, much better.

Or she could make one with a condom and flour.So close yet so far,hahaha

Iron my shirt bitch!

Oh God you are hilarious. Marry me ?

I'm on suit # 3 right now.

MERCY STRIKES AGAIN!

Why am I not surprised that mercy weighs in with authority when the topic involves busting balls? ;)

...But we can use our boobs!

Women have boobs lol
