Unsurprisingly, I have received a number of “I know you are on vacation but can you take a quick look at this” e mails. I ignore them unless it is a true emergency. Or if I get a reminder asking why they haven’t heard back from me at which point I reply with a “businesslike” reminder that I am on vacation. My response isn’t impolite; but, it makes it very, very clear that I don’t want to be bothered while I’m not at work. Some of my co-workers are so accustomed to being inconsiderate that they don’t even realize how disrespectful of MY vacation they are being.
