Random Tuesday Thoughts
Vacations are a double edged sword – they are great when you are on them, but when you come back, you are made to “pay” for taking time off.
I have 107 unread e-mails in my inbox and at least 75 of them are marked with that red exclamation mark indicating they are “urgent”. Does anyone actually think putting the exclamation mark on them is going to make me read them any quicker?
It’s great to come back to work only to be greeted by an e-mail from the CEO saying “thanks for all your hard work this year, but no one is getting a raise”. I am not surprised by this and am just thankful to have a job at all, but getting that e-mail still sucks.
While I was away, my local radio station had changed its usual format to “all Christmas music, all the time”. WTH? Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy Christmas music but NOT in November and NOT every damn song. There was something about hearing Alvin and The Chipmunks that almost sent me postal this morning.
I’m leaving my “out of office” notification on for the rest of the day and I don’t plan on answering the phone either. This will provide me with the opportunity to catch up on everyone’s blogs that I’ve missed. Those 107 e-mails can wait another day - it's not like they are really urgent anyhow..
