Stressed Out

Stressed Out

You work for five managers, and today one of the managers, Jean Forrester, has sent three reports to you for final completion with a special request to finish this work by this afternoon at 5:30 p.m. However, the other three managers have also assigned work to you and expect you to complete the assignments right away. You have had some difficulty in completing one of the assignments, you have missed lunch, and now you are becoming frustrated due to the pressure of completing all the work.
