10 Signs that I was working too hard

Prior to ER I had a number of indications that I should bail out. Here are ten signs you're working too hard ... Hope it helps.


You're so tired, you now answer the phone "hell"

You're best friend calls to ask how you've been and you immediately scream "get off by back, BITCH"

Your garbage can is your "in" box

You wake up to discover that your bed is on fire, but go back to sleep because you just don't care

You have so much on you're mind that you've forgotten how to pee

Visions of the upcoming weekend help you make it through Monday

You sleep more at work than you do at home

You leave for a party and instinctively bring you're briefcase

Your palm pilot exploded a week ago

You think about how relaxing it would be if you were in jail right now ...
