We all have bad days at work.

John Boehner, too.

For the House speaker, “Friday wasn’t all that fun,” he says, though “most days” he likes his job.

The Ohio Republican and his leadership team in the GOP-controlled House had a stunning defeat when a three-week spending bill for the Homeland Security Department went down, thanks to a group of angry conservatives.

The rejection came just hours before a threatened agency shutdown. A compromise — with support from Democrats — is keeping the department open for one more week.

Boehner tells CBS’ “Face the Nation” that Friday “was just messy and I’m not into messy.”

He calls the House “a rambunctious place” and says he enjoys “all the personalities — and I have got a lot of them.”
