These are normal days for me and I do not take a day off, even Sundays usually.
Last week I did virtually nothing Saturday and Sunday and it was wonderful but, I have felt guilty ever since!

Do you think I’m crazy?

If you have the energy and you can survive, who are we to judge!

But holyshit Batman! You would have to give up, what little sleep you have, for sex. Unless you could multitask!!!

Have sex while driving.
Have sex during the seminar, she under the podium.
Have sex during a presentation, while the lights are down in the back.

OMG!! Mav

If you are happy with your job I guess you are not crazy.
You have to take care of your health too.
What makes you feel guilty...hun?
I'm sure you need a massage, do you?

No, your British, you're not supposed to be having sex, remember old mate? Keep it up old chap! (not that, the work I meant. And a dirty mind too!)

Of course, you know what the worst part of all this hard work is?

If you closed down your company tomorrow....

Your customers would find a new supplier the day after.

Your staff would find new jobs next week (hopefully!)

Your creditors would be paid next month (well, eventually anyway, lol)

And, in six months time they will all have forgotten about you.

Loyalty & respect for you doing your jobs really well evaporates faster than a raindrop in the desert.

Sometimes you have to ask.....

Why DO we bother?

Yes, I've had a bad week too, before you start!!!

Worryingly normal, Frighteningly sane and Intriguingly different!

Fucking customers, I hate the bastards!

Hello Fun,

You find time to sleep? When I did management I had no social life, survived on a couple hours of sleep and if I took a day off it was to prefer for the week. Workaholics...hard on relationships...Sacrifices are worth it in the long run...I know where you are coming from...the frustrations, the rush that one gets when a problem is solved...the juggling...the employees needing your encouragement...also there when you need them at the crucial time...the reward is worth it...hopefully someday you can slow down to 5 days a week and 12 hour days...ahhh then life will be better!

Latest events mean that I may well be forced into that position!
