Top Ten Signs of Job Burn-Out

  1. You’re so tired, you now answer the phone with just: “Hell.”
  2. Your friends call to ask how you’ve been, and you immediately scream, “Get off my back!!”.
  3. Your garbage can is your “in” box.
  4. You wake up to discover your bed is on fire, but go back to sleep because you just don’t care.
  5. You have so much on your mind, you’ve forgotten how to logon.
  6. Visions of the upcoming weekend help you make it through Monday.
  7. You don’t set your alarm anymore because you know the pager will go off before the alarm does.
  8. You leave for a party and instinctively bring your ID badge.
  9. Your Day-Timer/Work Planner exploded a week ago.
  10. You think about how relaxing it would be if you were in jail right now.
