Begone annoying people!

veritasema with the quote of the day on twitter "Self care means sometimes you don't answer the phone."

It was in response to me being all ARRGHHHH at someone that I had to try to help even though he's in a department across town (long story, I'm so flippin' important at this University...go me). When the dude was so stupid as to respond to my "Have you checked with your IT department to make sure the email isn't going to your spam filter" with "What's "my IT"?" my head nearly exploded.

So new policy which starteth today. I don't care if I'm sitting here on my desk farting around on the intarwebs. Roughly between the hours of noon and one pm (or close depending on when the metaphorical pencil is down), I will NOT answer the phone. Granted, I don't get many phone calls but nope, that time is mine.

Figures that even though I don't get many calls, now that I've mentally decided to start said policy, I have voicemails waiting for me from two people. But I'm not checking them until at least 1pm.

ADDENDUM: I will also not answer work-related emails during that hour

Good for you! You need that break to recharge.

Radio silence for an hour, sounds like a great plan!
