Oh! Wait! Isn’t that supposed to be “Everybody’s working for the weekend” ?
I do a lot of my work via email and damnit, apparently I’m too friggin’ efficient. I got two emails today, Sunday remember, from people demanding answers immediately to their questions. Um, hello? It’s SUNDAY!!! Can’t I have a day off?? Cripes!
And none of this is earth-shattering, time-sensitive information. It can all wait until Monday morning. Can’t you people see I’m far too busy reading and posting on BLOGS to answer your silly little questions? Don’t you understand you might interrupt my napping schedule after my hard day yesterday of betting at the racetrack?
I mean, get a life! Maybe you want your information NOW, but did you ever consider that you might impact the reheating of leftovers for dinner?? Or the ultimately important task of actually reading a magazine I get BEFORE it goes to paper recycling. Don’t you want me to be INFORMED of the LATEST FASHION TRENDS?? Just because I work from home, doesn’t mean the cat and the dog don’t appreciate the most recent in haute couture!

There are other things that might get interrupted…and usually do!
I hate that!! During a family 4th of July party this last year I was called repeatedly by a client. I figured 5 times in a row must mean something is REALLY important.And surprise, it wasn't 😡
Hi Mo! You are right, it usually isn’t a big deal, but the one time your ignore it, it’ll be the thing you end up getting fired over, you know? Figures!!
