No work devices on vacation or it isn't a vacation

Take a real vacation. Unplug. But make sure everything is covered with specific tasks/owners, and anything you've been working on is saved and findable on the company drive.

Yeah, give it a skip. If you really need to access a computer, most hotels etc have computers for guests

You should let people know you won't have access to internet so they don't expect any work out. Then get the hell off the grid!

Fuck it. That's how you put the TO in PTO.

Vacation no work device. Get along with only a phone sometimes with no data. If I bring a laptop it goes with me or in a safe

Very anxious about the rest of this year. My partner who I live with lost his job due to Covid earlier this year and hasn’t been able to find another one. He’s running out of savings because there hasn’t been another stimulus package and I am having a hard time getting through the days because of this added stress on top of my job. I can’t share with him how burdening this all feels— it’s like I’m suffocating.
