Johanna Robinson has some thoughts on overtime. It's schocking to know 40% percent work over 50 hours a week. How depressing. My job has been in crunch mode since I got here. I have averaged over 50 hours per week! I included vacation time in the average number which did not drive it down by much. I'm not proud of that number and I'm quite ashamed of it. The number means less time with my wife, less time with my pets, less time for music, and less time for Smalltalking. In fact, I'm writing this blog from work right now at 12:40am in the morning while I wait for something to finish processing. I love the thoughts of Mr. Robinson and just found his blog. More managers should follow his lead! Oh, how I dream of working on a real XP team!
