Three windows on an office building in which everyone is having a bad day. On the bottom left, a sweating man holds his face in despair; a different man holds his hands to his eyes next to a chart of dramatically dropping numbers, and another man radiates anger and stress with his hands on the desk. On the top right, a woman holds an excessively tall stack of papers that start to fall and blow away while a seated man rubs his eyes with frustrated scribbles above his head.
