Good night, sleep tight, don't let the office bugs bite

I am late for office. The cab comes in next few minutes and I haven't got ready yet. I am trying to find my clothes, my bag, my id card and am not finding anything. The cab driver is calling......he will leave without me....I run across the door to the road only to stumble and fall on my doorstep and see my cab leaving without me.......
Am in office. The applications I handle go kaput one by one. The server goes down, Visual Basic is not responding, MS Access database is corrupted (and yeah people still use these softwares), another application is throwing null pointer exception. I have opened a bridge call with all stakeholders and the speaker phone is not working... The users are shouting at me and my managers are as usual offering profound thoughts which is as useful as Wasim Jaffer to a IPL T20 game.....
Its time to leave office. Only five minutes for the last bus....as I leave my cubicle the phone rings and I pick it up only to hear a client from Manila in her sweet but incomprehensible English starts ranting about how its 1 AM in Manila now and she has to run this report urgently, but as she tries to click on the application , its throwing up a error, which by the way started coming when she had tried to modify the code herself....I hear this in horror and my bus starts to leave without me.........
Are these the normal dreams of a person who is on a week long, refreshing, much needed holiday or is something really wrong with me? ....please somebody tell me......
