Or as we say at my agency in the red.

There is a special kind of in the red that we like to call Hell Week. It’s (at least) five sweet days of stress and panic that usually culminates in a breakdown and booze.

Rarely are there multiple Hell Weeks occurring within an office at anytime, but its not unheard of to see a department enduring it together.

They are usually caused by a co-worker out on vacation, multiple important deadlines, random mistakes, procrastination (usually to blame for my Hell Weeks) and of course not enough hours or energy to get everything done.

You can do nothing to resolve them except just get through them. Eat lunch at your desk, be the first to arrive and the last to leave, drink enough coffee and diet coke to make you feel like you couldn’t stop moving if you tried.
