Today I've done a 13 hour shift. I started at 10am and finish at 11pm. I am seriously ****ing tired, so tired I'm worried about my drive home. To make it worse the little pub slut that came in at 1pm got to go home at 9pm and he's all 'oh I'm so worn out', **** off ****, you've spent most of your shift having *** breaks and singing badly. I could seriously punch someone in the head right now.

That's a normal day for some of us....
Indeed!
A friend of mine started his own business about 4 years ago and since then until a month ago he's been working 70h/week. Let's just say that he's not in top mental health anymore :spank:

PMSL - sorry to hear you all have to work so hard!

I work 8.30 to 5pm Mon-Fri and can work from home as often as I like. Frankly my boss doesn't worry what hours I work, just as long as I'm hitting my sales target. Then again, if I don't hit target I get put in the firing line, quite literally... :)
