Good philosophy. I burned myself out trying to do it all and ended up on here! I used to be able to work all the hours but when I hit 30 I guess I couldn't keep up with that pace anymore.

Even if someone gets ratty it could be that they are under pressure, or maybe even feel a bit stupid for messing up, and a bit of talking things through (and them seeing you helping them) might smooth that over and turn their attitude around.
