- The opportunity to spend time with friends and family.
- Cool stuff from friends and family.
- Being on-call for work but not having any actual calls.
- Having to shop in midtown on foot, and drag around a stupid company issued laptop everywhere I went on top of all the gifts I was buying.
- Having to take home two huge bags of gifts from New Jersey in the pouring rain on foot, one bag with two broken handles and one bag with one broken handle. Oh yeah, and also having to drag along the company issued laptop.
That shoulder bag with the laptop starts to feel VERY heavy after dragging it for ten or twelve blocks combined with various gifts.
