On National Blame Someone Else Day, we take the opportunity to wipe a little of our bad luck onto someone else. We all need a little break every once in a while, and this day gives the perfect opportunity to do so. Whether we’re running a little late for work today, we’ve spilled our coffee, or we burned dinner a little too much, blaming someone else for the mishap can help take off some of the pressure from ourselves, just to make it a little easier to make it through the day. The coffee spilled because of the little gnome that ran past your legs, and the dinner burned because of the cheeky suspect that snuck into the house and turned off your timer! It’s got nothing to do with you! Wink, wink.
