"Loaphobia." I wonder what the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders says about this?

Loaphobia (Lack-of-Application-Phobia), I learned today, is fear in the workforce of not being able to hit deadlines, missing promotions, or losing their jobs due to inabilty to access an applicatoin. This fear is apparently well founded because recent research found that 19% have missed a critical deadline as a result of being denied full access to an application, 14% lost a job and 6% missed a promotion. Just when you thought it was safe to close your eyes and sleep at night.
