Yup. I’ve started already. It’s been a hell of week. I am a few days away from 40 and it seems I’ve developed horrific acid reflux on cue. A few people in my department (luckily they report to my colleague and not me) thought it was cool to just telework (without permission) for a few hours per day the week before Christmas without telling anyone or taking vacation days. I am not a big fan of our sort of strict teleworking policy, but it is what it is. Lying about it after the fact and working a few hours per day for a week without claiming any vacation....just doesn’t fly. We get an entire week of for Christmas for free (the office closes) and genetous vacation. Now it’s a big thing...

What’s up with you?
