Vacation - what?

Next time I tell you guys that I am planning a superb, relaxing, well-deserved vacation, please thump me in the head and remind me that it is never a good idea for me to take a vacation because either hell will freeze over or some other major catastrophe will happen at work, thus causing major stress in my life, thus reversing all that relaxing that I had previously done, thus causing me to have an ulcer and possibly minor, or major, heart palpitations, and a horrible crick in my neck all due from the stress.

Also remind me that I deal with idiots on a daily, hour by slow hour, basis and that if I am to leave the office for any short moment of time, they become bigger idiots and seem to lose all capacity of remembering their very own name, let alone any other thing that I possibly could have trained them to do so it just is not worth the extra effort that I will have to go through to re-align the stars and the moon and everything other fricking thing to make the world right again.

Just remind me of all this, will ya?

How long until the big vacation that is retirement? ;-)

And do you have 100 e-mails to plow through before you can even start to prioritize? I always think the same thing--being away really wasn't worth it. And yet, the next time I can get away--I do it!

Wow, that bad, huh? Want to run away to Oregon? It is much cooler here these days. It is only 65 degrees! Might be a tad cold for you, but we have blazing fast high speed and I won't tell them where you are at!

That's my biggest fear about going on a week long vacation this year. Work is going to be HELL when I get back. I scaaaaarrrred!

Just remember the beach. The beer. The sun. The breeze coming off the ocean. You know, the good stuff. Just remember that when you're ready to kill...pretty sure that's what got me though after my last vacation.

Ohhh. This sucks. Still, imagine how much more stressed you'd be without a vacation!

Poor Kat!! Your post makes me even more glad that I don't work with a lot of people and am by myself most of the time. Only one I can argue with is my own self! I hope things are better by now.
