Freaks, freaks everywhere

Doesn’t anyone slack off anymore??

Here I am, trying to enjoy some down time with BW while he’s between jobs, but I am getting -slammed- with work! Since Monday the phone won’t stop ringing, and everytime I turn around, I’ve got a half-dozen new work emails in my inbox! WTF? What’s wrong with these people? It’s the 3 days before Thanksgiving, and they all have jobs in academia. Why are they doing work?!

In my day, the week of Thanksgiving was a time for coming in, doing as little work as possible, surfing the net, leaving early, chatting with the handful of coworkers who bothered to show up, and exchanging foods and recipes around the office.

Doesn’t anyone cherish traditional values anymore?
