Top signs of burnout

Sometimes the only thing that helps us stay sane during stressful times is a good laugh. If you're feeling the pressures of work (as many of us do) then you might find these "burnout signs" a bit comical.
10. You're so tired, you now answer the phone with "Leave me alone!"
9. Your friends call to ask how you've been, and you immediately scream, "Stop asking me all these questions!"
8. Your garbage can IS your "Inbox"!
7. You wake up to discover your house is on fire, but go back to sleep because you just don't care.
6. You consider a 40-hour week a vacation.
5. Visions of the upcoming weekend help you make it through Monday.
4. You don't set your alarm anymore because you know your pager will go off before your alarm does.
3. You leave for a party and instinctively bring your ID badge.
2. Your DayTimer/Work Planner exploded a week ago.
And the NUMBER ONE sign that you are burned out because of work:
1. You think about how relaxing it would be if you were in jail right now.
