Did you find yourself checking your work email over Memorial Day weekend? Even if you didn't INTENTIONALLY check it, did you read it when it popped up in the inbox on your phone?
So did everyone else. According to work experts, the smartphone era has basically KILLED the three-day weekend.
BUT . . . it's not necessarily your boss's fault. Your smartphone might've killed your weekend because YOU think you're REALLY IMPORTANT.
Laura Vanderkam is a work-life balance expert. She says, quote, "Many of us have an exaggerated sense of our own importance" . . . so we feel like we HAVE to check in on work when we're on vacation.
Quote, "I can tell you that [after a three-day weekend], the Earth will still be revolving, whether you've checked your email or not."
According to the latest studies, the average person checks their smartphone 150 times a day, or approximately once every six minutes. And 35% of people do at least some work on weekends.

She's 21, she's Danish and needless to say she's easy on the eyes. We've added another picture of her just in case you didn't get a good look at the first one.
According to a new survey, one in five women say that their husband or boyfriend is the high-maintenance one in their relationship. Here are the five reasons why:
1. Men are more likely to throw a tantrum if they don't get what they want.
2. Guys spend more time in the bathroom getting ready to go out than women do.
3. Men are more likely to refuse to leave the house without their hair looking perfect, and without the right clothes.
4. Men constantly need to be told, "I love you."
5. Guys get upset when women don't answer when they call.

Actress Angelina Jolie announced in a New York Times op-ed article on Tuesday that she underwent a preventive double mastectomy after learning she carries a mutation of the BRCA1 gene, which sharply increases her risk of developing breast cancer and ovarian cancer.
"My doctors estimated that I had an 87 percent risk of breast cancer and a 50 percent risk of ovarian cancer, although the risk is different in the case of each woman," Jolie wrote. "Once I knew that this was my reality, I decided to be proactive and to minimize the risk as much I could. I made a decision to have a preventive double mastectomy."
Jolie's mother, actress and producer Marcheline Bertrand, died of ovarian cancer in 2007 at the age of 56. Jolie is 37 years old.
In the Times op-ed, titled "My Medical Choice," Jolie said she finished three months of medical procedures at the Pink Lotus Breast Center in California on April 27 that included the mastectomies and reconstruction.
