Assessment: Are You Taking the Time Off That You Need? Re-post

To all auditors friends on vacation:

In an auditors firm: on Monday evening at 6pm one of auditors would turn of his computer and leave. Everyone else was too busy to notice. He did the same on Tuesday at 6pm. Colleagues exchanged looks. On Wednesday, when he was about to turn off his computer, one of colleagues asked pretentiously:

– what are you doing? We are watching you since Monday.  How can you leave at 6 pm?

– i am on leave since Monday!

To all project managers friends on leave:

– mom, aren’t you late for work?
– i’ll be on time. It’s fine whenever i get there. I am on leave.
My vacation this year 🙂 Moral of this post: do what i preach, not what i do.

Thanks for the inspiration:
