John -

Be glad you didn't have to give birth!! Seriously, my boss had scheduled every minute of every day until my due date (and was seriously stressing about whether I ACTUALLY needed six weeks off afterwards). Unfortunately (for him, at least) I went into labour 3 weeks early - which messed up his schedule!! So . . . there I am in the labour room and the phone rings. Like an idiot I answered it, thinking perhaps it was my awol husband - no, it's the boss, on a conference call with the client for the next day, trying to cajole me into coming in to do the session. Thankfully the tranquilizer I had just been given kept me from permanently burning that bridge, and I did show up a week later (breastfeeding infant in tow) to get the session done. The only good part is I've NEVER let the boss forget it, guilt can truly be a powerful motivator when you leverage it well!
