This Issue's Dilemma:
I can't seem to catch a break
Arrrgh! I just came back from vacation, and everything I asked other people to handle in my absence is still sitting on my desk — undone. Not only am I going to spend several hours catching up, but the printer is now going to charge me an expedite fee to get my brochures done in time for our next tradeshow.
I shudder to think what will happen -- or not -- next month when I take off a week for my son’s wedding in Hawaii.
How do I get these people to pitch in when I need them? Use logic? Bribery? Threats?
