  • If it frustrates you that they don't allow laptops on a Ferris wheel
  • If you are looking forward to Christmas this year because you can decide to take that afternoon off
  • If you don't drink any beverages during the day because you will lose time having to go to the bathroom
  • If a Pay-Per-View movie is your idea of a vacation
  • If twenty minutes is too long for a lunch "hour"
  • If hobbies are something you will get into when you "get the time"
  • If the only time you have had off in the last three years was to attend your favorite uncle's funeral
  • If you wish you were so stressed but know that you will feel better as soon as you "get over the hump"
  • If the color of one side of your golf bag has faded and is different from the other side of the bag
  • If you promised your spouse "this is the only Sunday I will work" more than three times in the last year
  • If you bring your spreadsheets to your son's football game
  • If you sense that the smiles from those around you are somewhat synthetic

  • If you have not gone home early in the last six months
  • If your idea of an intimate anniversary celebration is to take your spouse to a formal business dinner
