What goes up must come down

156 emails! 156 new, unread, and decidedly unpleasant emails in my inbox. After working all day, I've gotten them down to 118 that will require some kind of work on my part to satisfy them. On a good day, I can handle between 5 and 8 if nothing new comes in. This is the punishment for going on vacation. It's career suicide. I've decided to run away and become a professional cruise ship stowaway.
