It's a little late for this, but you should have gone to the bathroom before lunch and flushed all the toilet paper down. This has 2 benefits, everyone who comes back for post lunch poops will be fucked and forced to use paper towels. After 2 industrial rolls of TP and a number of paper towels, the sewage will be clogged to all hell and the toilets will back up around 3. Then everyone gets to go home early 😊

Does anyone else feel like their burn-out cycle is shorter? It used to take me about 2 years of grind before I hit a burn-out phase where I needed to do some serious recuperating. It feels like I'm at 3 months now, or even less. I've already spoken to my wife about building quarterly mini-vacations into my schedule just to keep my energy up. And by burn-out, I mean you're at the point that every single ball you are juggling can drop and you get fired and almost see that as a blessing.
