Writer's Block: Meanwhile, back on the ranch ...

What is the absolute worst part of returning to work or school after a particularly long and relaxing vacation? How quickly do you reacclimate to the daily grind?



Easy question. The worst part would be having to face the pile of work that accumulated in my absence because it was work that no one else would or could do. I also regularly got direct email requests from people with the bad habit of bypassing proper channels and with the worse habit of failing to check if I was in office. So guess what? I've returned to work and seen hundreds of emails, many of them with keywords like "Urgent" and "ASAP". I have to wonder how many of those I was still getting after I left the job.
