It’s crunch time. You and your team are all working late from home to get this super important proposal done on time. You’ve lost count of how many coffees you’ve had today, now you’re running on soda and popcorn. Finally you’re done, attach draft “FINAL_FINAL_2”, send email, and now it’s time for a bit of sleep before tomorrow’s meeting.
