It’s finally herePosted: August 16, 2012
Our first vacation in ages. One week road trip! There are 2 strategies for leaving my lab without bringing down a metric ton of guilt and scrutiny.
1. Say nothing until they day before you leave, write an email with your dates away (sorry for short notice, blah blah blah), be ready to run, hit “send,” GO!
2. Send email with dates 6-8 weeks in advance (too far away to care). Allow amnesia to set in. Leave without a word.
I usually do the former but I have adopted the latter strategy this time. Let’s see how it goes!
