    Can Girl Friday show me how to stop people that I work with from going on vacation/leave and then telling people “If you need anything while I am gone see Notorious MAG”. Yeah I have my boss out until Monday, my HR director out for 2-4 weeks, and the accounting manager gone for 12 weeks! Stressed is putting it mildly!
