Okay people. The absolute WORST time to call or just “drop by” the office is on deadline. Unless you want to be cussed out, I suggest you stay put, hold your questions, keep your emails under wraps and just generally stay away.
It’s hilarious to see people that just don’t understand that deadline is not a happy time for us. When you have the office phone, the email, the cell phone and people coming in out, it’s hard to keep it calm and light. We try, I promise. But sometimes the tension gets the best of all of us. And we try not to take it personally when we are on the receiving end of The deadline syndrome. We’re just like family.
