OK so I have been thinking about this concept of salaried employees working far too much and how this seems to be expected from the uppers. Either I am not getting paid enough to work into the wee hours or I don't really enjoy what I am doing.
So I would like to ask to anyone who does work crazy-go-nuts hours why exactly they do it. I can only assume that there are 3 possibilities:
1 - Their job kicks ass and they never want to be doing anything else.
My response: bastards. How did you get that job? Did it take awhile to find it?
2 - They have nothing better to do and they are getting pressure to work those long hours.
My response: suckers. (maybe that is my problem... )
3 - They are getting blackmailed. (OK... or they are payed too much and feel guilty.)
My response: figures.
So am I a lazy good-for-nothing if I only put in my 40 hours a week? When it comes time to go home, I can't wait to get home and make some dinner and maybe watch some tv, go on a run, work on the lathe, plan my project in eagle, or get schooled by my wife at gin rummy. It would take a lot to get me to give those things up.
