I just checked my work email. Which, I know, I should not do when I am off, but there it is.

I have 117 messages, some of which are high importance.

Do I leave them, because I BOOKED MON-WED OFF, DAMN IT! Or, do I log in and answer some of them, knowing full well that if IM shows me online, I am going to have people pinging me left, right and center, so I can save myself the headache of the insanity that Thursday and Friday will become?

The struggle is real.

What a conundrum! Is there any way to silently answer some of the more pressing emails?

Well, I ended up ignoring them and today is the shitestorm I expected. Ah, well, that's the choice I made.

Ugh. I hate that dilemma. It is all too real.

Ha! I knew you would understand that one on a close and personal level!

Don't respond, I say. If you respond on a day off, then the next time you take time off, they'll expect a response, because you've done it before. Make it clear that your day off is your day off~

You will be happy to know that I ignored everyone.

I think you made the right choice ;)

I'm going to vote with popkin16 -- once you do it, they expect it... and then it's even harder when you're in a personal situation where you *have* to be offline.

Good luck!

That's definitely a pickle.
