40-hour work week? Guess again.. According to this article in the local paper, I work too much.
[Deane] Barker’s schedule is so busy that he won’t take his full vacation time this year. He manages to sneak in a day here and there, he said, but there isn’t time for an entire week off.
“There’s never really a good time,” Barker said. “You go out and you have a nice time on vacation, but there is hell to pay when you get back to the office.”
Most of Barker’s days are spent “putting out fires” and reacting to the day’s happenings. Night time and weekend work is spent trying to get everything else done without interruption, he said.
