I have a notebook next to my bed for when I wake up at 2:am and have to jot down an action item for the following day.
Now about those government jobs...lol. I'll have to look through the fine print of my contract that says 8-4 or 9-5

I worked 100-120 hrs a week for 3 months straight just prior to Y2K.
Thank god i wasn't salaried and there'* no way I could have done it without my darling wife doing all the work on the homefront.

Hell, I work salary, 9 to 5, sometimes 5:30 or 6 on a bad day, but I don't have a government job. 10 hour days are long gone for me *knock on wood* and I'm happy about that. Being busy is good though, time does fly that way. Most days time goes by pretty quickly at my job. It helps when you're busy, but also when you like/love what you do.

Right now I average only 3 to 4 hours overtime a week. I like the policyholders I take care of and I like most of the other people that work in other offices, but my boss irks me sometimes!!

Boosty- It has only been 9 years since I've worked a weekend. I did work one Saturday after we had a bad storm come through about 6 1/2 years ago and had to get claims filed. The only time I'd have to work weekends would be if we had a disaster and claims had to be handled.

I realize that this is a bit off topic and some of you may not like what I'm about to say but.............Iíve have some people accomplish more in a 40 hour week than a lot of people have worked in a month. To me, it doesn't really matter how many hours you've worked, it'* what you've accomplished during those hours. My attitude comes from being self employed; I would rather pay someone $30. per hour and accomplish in a week what a $15. per hour accomplishes in 2 weeks.


Ok now, bring it on.......I know I'm going to get a lot of criticism. I know where the ignore button is.
