The numbers don't lie

You may be aware that there's a show on ESPN called "Numbers Don't Lie." Well, today the SJ network is hosting my own version of NNL.

1% = the amount of battery left on my phone when I got to work
8:47 am = the time that the battery completely died
2 = the number of charging cords in my bag
2 = the number of charging cords in my bag that are for tablets rather than phones
3 = the number of phone chargers I own
0 = the number of phone chargers that I actually brought to work
7 = my stress level on a 1-10 scale due to dead phone
0 = the actual number of phone calls I've probably missed today because no one actually calls anyone anymore
1 = what my stress level on a 1-10 scale SHOULD be based on approximate number of missed calls
23 = the estimated number of times you've nodded your head thinking "I've totally done that, too" while reading this post
2 = the number of minutes you wasted reading and sympathizing with this post
3 = the number of work days left until my Christmas break
3 = the minimum number of times I will reference my Christmas break again before Christmas
31 = the estimated number of people who will actually read this whole post
6 = the estimated number of people who will actually read this whole post and then never read my posts again
