How's your workload right now?

"How's your workload right now?"

Anytime I get asked this question, my workload invariably gets heavier. Today I have had 3 different people ask me how my workload was, last week 3 other people asked me how my workload was, and now, my workload is invariably pretty heavy.

2 weeks ago, I had nothing to do, and now we have way too much to do. It seems that when it rains, it pours. Stupid work, with its stupid deadlines and stupid workload. Now I have tons and tons of work to do and very little time to get it all done.
