Today I came across a great quote by Mark Twain:

"Humor is the great thing, the saving thing after all. The minute it crops up, our hardnesses yield, all our irritations and resentments flit away, and a sunny spirit takes its place."
Laughing about the absurdity of every day life in medicine is just as much an antidote for burnout as talking about the sad things.
So next time you have a shitty 18 hour day full of angry patients and irritated consultants, instead of focusing on how awful life may be at that moment, try laughing about the fact that you started the day with 5 pens and inexplicably ended up with zero.
