Back to the grind...and I'm not talkin' coffee

Why does going back to work after vacation have to suck so bad?

Vacation hangover is one of the worst things in the world. I just don't understand why you can't just ease back into the grind. But expectantly, you wander blindly and hesitantly back into your office, turn on your PC, and hold your breath as you open your email. And then inevitably, there throughout your inbox, is a string of emails, obviously from "important people" wanting "important things". "Things" that need your immediate attention. Creepy slimy "things" that need to be your first priority.

And the cruel truth is, all you can really think about is how wonderful your time off was. Everyone keeps telling you how much they missed you, how quiet things were, how glad they are that you are back, and asking how was your vacation. All those things just reminding you of the greatness of not being at work.....

Oh well, I guess I should go get a cup of German Chocolate Cake coffee, close my door, listen to Green Day, and surf the web....maybe that will be close enough to being on vacation.
