How to Celebrate National Inconvenience Yourself Day

Home > Chicago > How To | Lists
National Inconvenience Yourself Day is the one day of the year that you are allowed to inconvenience yourself as much as you want. The problem with it, is that no one knows about it, so they don't celebrate it. Even if they did know about it they would wonder, "how do I celebrate it?" Well, thankfully it's pretty self explanatory.

You start the day by waking up at 5 AM, you need to celebrate the day to it's fullest. The first thing you do is start a load of all your bath towels. Then, you take a freezing cold shower for 15 mins. When you're done you realize you have no towel. You figure out that problem and then you get dressed. The thing is that you don't get dressed the convenient way. Put your clothes on backwards and inside out. Once you're completely dressed you go get the ingredients for cereal. As you are pouring the milk you look at the time and then freak out, you're late for work. You spill the milk and then decide that you need something to eat. You get your purse/wallet and then remember you need your coat. You put your purse/wallet down and your coat on and get your car keys off the key hook. You get in the car and hurry to the store.

Once you're at the checkout line you remember you have no money, because you forgot your purse/wallet. You hurry to your car, just to remember that you locked your keys in the car. You call the police, to see if they can open the door, but the closest police man is over a half an hour away. You call a friend who thankfully takes you to work. But you're late and your boss is mad at you, for being late for the past week. He gives you an insane amount of overtime, which you know you deserve. You finish a hard day of work at 7 PM, dealing with various inconveniences you made for yourself.

You didn't wear your suit, so you had to borrow another employees extra one. Well, you spilled coffee on it, so you had to find another just like it. You yell at your friend, because she was yelling at you for ruining her suit and you just make the meaning of the special holiday come true.

You go to the store and a police officer arrives shortly. He goes through many identification questions, but then realizes you are legit. You go home just to find spoiled, bumpy, smelly milk all over your kitchen floor. After you clean it up you realize it is 8 PM. You put your cell phone in the charger and the power to the house turns off. You change into your most uncomfortable outfit and go to sleep.

If this sounds like a fun holiday to you, then you better hope you can find the date, because I am going to inconvenience you and not tell you.

Kidding! Have fun celebrating this unusual holiday on February 24.

Haven't heard of this one before. Fun! Another idea would be to inconvenience yourself in a positive way by making a larger-than-usual donation to a charity or organization.
