E-man­ci­pa­tion

The Washington Post Sunday - - SUNDAY OPINION - Nancy McGuire, Sil­ver Spring

Re­gard­ing the March 8 Metro ar­ti­cle “Va­ca­tions with­out the nag­ging emails”:

Fi­nally, some ev­i­dence of san­ity in the work­place! I had to walk away from a job in which one man­ager liked to send text mes­sages at 5 a.m. An­other man­ager pestered me for my an­nual per­for­mance goals while I was sit­ting vigil with my mother dur­ing the last days of her life, and, later, she freaked out when she couldn’t get an in­stant re­sponse from me while I was 30,000 feet in the air re­turn­ing from a busi­ness trip. I took a sub­stan­tial fi­nan­cial hit, but I’m much hap­pier with­out my 24/7 elec­tronic leash.
