When you can see how close you are to achieving your dream, it can make day-to-day life a little frustrating. It can be so frustrating when five days and a giant project stand between you and the weekend or when your Powerball numbers are this close.

They can see their ticket out of performing lab duty, and that makes each test just a little more tedious. Spinning urine probably isn’t much fun anyway.
