No matter how hard-working and close-knit your team is, there comes a time when somebody reaches their limit -- and goes on vacation. Push yourself away from the table, my friends, because you are intellectually full. It's time to get away, enjoy some time with your family and friends, and take a well-deserved break.
And that's when your teammates turn on you.
You might return to find your desk and workstation covered in a couple thousand post-it notes.
Or you might find yourself digging through five 24-roll packs of toilet paper just to find your desk.
Feeding on your strong dislike for cats, they might find it funny to place pictures of cats throughout your office, and set you up with a nice little cat bed, toy and cat food, plus a kitty litter box complete with fake poop, lovingly crafted out of tootsie rolls (at least they tasted like tootsie rolls).
But what is better than coming back to work to find your desk covered with gift-wrapped presents? Good luck finding your stapler.
Beware the vacations, folks. Don't fall into the trap. Because if you do, you might get hit. And then things will start escalating, productivity will suffer, and stockholders will start to get nervous. Bill and Steve will have to start making regular statements to the press to calm everyone, but the stock market will still take a nosedive. At that point, the federal government will get involved, declare Marshall law, and relinquish many of our rights -- all because of your selfish 3-day trip to Disneyland.
It's just not worth it, people. Just plan on working 7x24...
