Back to work

Today is the day most people quit their jobs. According to an old USA Today factoid I recall reading, the top reason for quitting a job is dread over returning to work following a vacation.

I am heading back to Raleigh tomorrow morning and dreading the security checks more than anything else.  No toothpaste. No saline solution for my contact lenses. The local drug store is going to benefit at my expense. So, RTP this week, New York next, and back into the swing of things.

  1. Hearkening back to your post about life-hacking and packing for travel, I’m very interested to learn how you’re going to adapt your strategy to the latest roadblocks, courtesy of the TSA.

  2. Well, no toothpaste, deodorant or hair gel. I’ll go to REI in Durham, buy another shaving kit, stock it at the CVS and leave it under my desk. I wonder if a spare set of contact lenses sealed in saline will get rejected?

    God why do we need to travel?

  3. David, will just miss you. I’m off to Beijing tomorrow morning, to begin the one year journey. Ping me or shoot me a note (or I’ll catch it on your blog) next time you’re headed over there
