What time do you go to work??

What's you're start time? What's your quitting time?

I go to work at about 0245-0300L every morning, and my quitting time is around 1800L (including the drive and feeding).

Sadly, my bedtime is around 2000-2030L every night anymore.

What time do you go to work?

On Saturdays and Sundays we get to sleep-in to about 0330L...sometimes even 0400L (if we're really bad). That's nice.

ETA...it doesn't matter if it's rain or shine, freezing sideways snow, pouring rain, lightning and thunder....it's all the same. Each day starts outside, in the dark, and trying to do the best job one can do, despite it all. Sick doesn't count; don't feel like it doesn't count, it's always there.

My personal assistant typically begins to gently ring a small chime around 9AM which signifies that the Bloody Marys are ready. I may or may not get out of bed until 20-30 minutes after that depending on whether she remembered to put out my slippers and robe.

I'm stuck in part-time land. The only real good thing is that my schedule is extremely flexible. So long as I put in 4 hours at some point during the day and I have cleared it with my boss ahead of time, I can basically work just about whenever.

My preferred 4 is 8:30 -12:30.

This week I am working afternoons to accommodate kiddo's summer schedule. Next week, I'll be back to mornings.

It has it's challenges. Not enough spice in the Bloody Mary. Too rough on the foot massages. Stuff like that. I try to suck it up though.

I've heard people talk about this thing they call "retirement". I don't know what this concept is.

I'm not sure I ever will.

My (our) motivation comes from a bunch of critter who are several times larger than any one of us, who are always delighted to see us, who understand their lives depend on us as much as ours do on theirs. It's an odd and magical, symbiotic relationship, with animals who have an IQ of about "3".

The aches and pains tell the story, as do the bumps and bruises (sometimes worse).

I always wonder what life would have been like to choose a different path, but in retrospect, even at 50+ years old...I can't see anything in life which would have been more fulfilling and rich. (dangerous, yes, but rich none the less).

i go in around 10am, unless i have something that i scheduled before then. I come home around 5. And I take an hour and a half for lunch. So that is about 6 hours in the office 5 days a week.

Then from home, i cook and clean up, then work from around 7 until 10 most nights, and grab 4-6 hours during the weekend. And I get woke up in the middle of the night once or twice a week to do an hours worth of work before trying to get back to sleep.

I may take on some special projecst periodically, and will typically devote an extra 20 hours a week to complete.

I guess I chose the wrong profession(s).

I should have been a weather man on TV.

(sigh)

I work monday to thursday every week.

Sunday night i goto bed at 9:30-10 pm, then get up at 3:30 am. I make the hour and a half drive to work. Usually pull in around 5 am, bring my bag to my room and take an hour nap. Then get up at 6am to eat a quick breakfast in the mess hall, grab a lunch and head up the road from the camp to my office for 6:30am.

From monday - Wednesday, the days are done at 6 pm. And i go to bed around 9:30-10 pm.
But on thursday (home day) I leave work anywhere from 1 pm - 4 pm. Depending on how bad I want to get out of here.

I remember that time your P.A brought you home the 2 ply...wow were you grumpy that day.
Its fair to say Augustus NEEDS his 4 ply, and that she wont be making that mistake again.

I'm on a slightly-modified 9-5 shift: I get in the office about 7:30-7:40am, and am usually out the door sometime between 4:00-5:00pm (it varies depending on my mood - I already put in the required 8 hours by 4:00).

Commute doesn't usually take long - maybe 25 minutes tops in the morning, and if the dreaded Michigan State Flower (the Orange Barrel) weren't in bloom, it would be the same time coming home.

I dare say not. It literally doubled the time she spent down there.

By "personal assistant", do you mean slave? If she gets something wrong does she have to go in the freezer?
