Nothing is sweeter than using your PTO and stepping away from the daily grind. Of course, doing so has its downsides. We don't mean the actual time off itself- that rules. We mean the whiplash once you step back into the office.
LOL! This hits home for anybody who's had to work a 9 to 5 office job. You're worn out, you don't want to be there, you wish you were still on vacation- and now you've got a mountain of extra work to carve your way through. Ain't no way around it- it sucks!
This way-too-real video resonated with other office workers, who shared how they handle things at work after a vacation. "Has also forgotten all passwords and how to do half of the work," admitted @itsnickclette365. LOL, it's so true- it's amazing how fast we push stuff out of our heads when we're not thinking about it every day. "How do I use my mouse?" joked @nikkigugler.
Many have their go-to phrases for their brief readjustment period as well. "Automatic reply states “Back from PTO, digging out of the mountain of emails, all responses will be delayed"," shared @cee_cee72- honestly, smart. "'Sorry, I'm still catching up from being off' is my favorite line," recommended @chrissylb01. And sometimes, people just say "eff it" to some of their less important emails: "I come back and just delete emails I don’t wanna deal with. "Oh sorry I just got back, I never got that email"," one user admitted.
Bryan's sense of humor is pretty priceless here. No matter who you are or what your job is, most of us can agree- the first day back to work from PTO is a tough time!
