   I'm overwhelmed with a heavy workload.

Hear the storyline. Derrick complains to his good friend Terri that he is overwhelmed with a heavy workload....
Terri: Derrick, don't you think you should take a vacation?  Even one or two days would be fine.
Derrick: There's no way.  There's too much work.
Terri: But you look so exhausted.  You need a break!
Derrick: I know.  My chances would be better if they would hire more people.
Terri: They won't hire more people?
Derrick: No.  They always want to keep the cost down.  I am really overwhelmed with a heavy workload. 
Terri: Maybe you should talk to the manager.
Derrick: Yes.  I'm going to bring this up in tomorrow's meeting.
