A new survey about stress at work says when the average Americans workload increases so does stress.

Something as simple as a coworker going on vacation can increase stress by nearly a third. The problem is while a coworker is on vacation you have to do your work and cover for them too for no extra pay.

Over half of Americans surveyed (53 percent) find covering for a coworker to be a significantly stressful event. It also takes the average American five full days off from work to actually start to relax and unwind from the day-to-day stressors of their job.

according to uk.news.yahoo.com freezing laptops and computers emerged as the biggest daily stressor (48 percent), with slow Wi-Fi (45 percent), and screaming kids (38 percent) rounding out the top three.

Other big stressors included misplacing your phone (35 percent), being late for something (35 percent), and even coworkers getting on your nerves (33 percent).
