Are You Ready for Vacation?....

Are You Ready for Vacation?

A Simple Quiz to Help You Decide

Summer is here! Traditionally, this is the time for vacation and getting away from work stress. But how do you know when its time for a break?

Do you have a designated parking spot in the employee parking garage?

Does the security guard know you by your first name?

Has your accumulated sick leave balance gone over the top?

Is your computer password, "hurryup!"

Is the FAX machine on or near your desk?

Do your eyes light up at the sight of incoming e-mail?

Do you wear a beeper or carry a cell phone?

Do you come in early or stay late to get more work done?

Can you send a FAX, make a phone call, check email, and eat lunch all at the same time?

Is coffee your primary source of nutrition?

Is the carpet worn out under your chair?

Do you go to staff meetings just for a break?

Is voice mail your best friend?

Is your e-calendar too full to hold any more appointments?

Is your "to do" list in your pocket next to your heart?

Did the ball on your computer mouse wear out?

Do you smile when the phone rings?

Does your cubical have a sign that says, "Home Sweet Home?"

Have you started to like the taste of employee cafeteria food?

Do you have a change of clothing and an extra toothbrush in your bottom desk drawer "just in case?"



It’s hopeless. Prepare your family for your impending heart attack and get your affairs in order.

10-15 YES

Definitely vacation material! Get a tan then join Workaholics Anonymous and try to kick the habit.

5-10 YES

You deserve a break! Take the batteries out of your beeper, figure out the auto response function on your computer and, most of all, apply for vacation leave while there’s still hope.

0-5 YES

Get to work and save that sick leave till you need it. You probably made your vacation plans long ago. Next time send us a post card so we can see what we’re missing!
