stuck in my backlog

I am now officially so far behind on answering questions that I have given up all hope of ever catching up. I have added a disclaimer to the sidebar warning that this may happen, yet I still feel strangely like a slacker.

"Ask a Manager" and "slacker" simply don't belong in the the same sentence. Give yourself a break, you are answering questions like crazy and they are not simple one-liners. Can your readers shorten their questions some? Can your friends help?

Seriously, cut yourself a break! You give detailed, competent, authoritative advice for FREE and post an answer almost EVERY DAY. There's no "slacker" anywhere in THAT job description.

If anyone bitches about you needing a break to catch up, I'll kick them in the face.

You give detailed, gracious, firm but fair answers to multi-layered, complex questions. As a writer of a couple of them, I am so grateful for your prompt and thoughtful responses. I wish I could offer you more than my meager gratitude. You should be proud of the work you do here (without compensation!) to help people in job (or non-job) distress like me. Thank you.

You guys are awesome. Thank you! And Rebecca, I may need to take you up on the kicking-in-the-face offer in other contexts; I hope it is transferrable!
