Someone give me a couple million dollars or so
Please and thank you.
3 for 3
I've been thinking forever that the typical American work environment - as well as collective corporate America should offer a universal option where you can choose to work MORE hours in 4 days (or even 3 days). This, so you can opt to take Monday off, or whatever day you desire in exchange for the extra hours you gave of yourself in those four days.
It would improve mental health (Sunday night blues), morale, and present the appearance of more of a free time playing field (4 days on...3 days off). We're still too stuck in the stone age with our work day mandates and rituals.
Probably thin the fuck out of traffic on a few days too. Anytime I'm foisted into rush hour on Long Island-- I'm continually amazed I STILL see the same or worse traffic there was when I was a little kid at the same times, and in the same places. No progress has been made in that area whatsoever.
You can have my $6K in Sports book cash.
At least it's a start.
Gar its Artie...
And there are a TON of jobs where this shouldn't be an issue either. I work as an accountant and I do the regular bullshit hours. With the way our office works, Friday would be the easiest day for me to skip. I could easily put in and extra couple hours Monday-Thursday and would only come in Friday's if it falls during the month-end close. I would be happier and more productive. And the office is open anyways for hours before and after 9-5 so it's no extra cost to the company.
I think about this shit a lot. We came up with a lot of our expected standards of life decades ago.... or longer (hundreds and sometimes thousands of years). Everybody is so fixated on a routine that even the smallest of companies fear to break the mold.
In Australia most jobs have this option.
All you have to do is wait it out for a bit and soon enough you'll be able to trade a plastic comb for a wheelbarrow full of those federal reserve notes you're after.
Then you can smile at your fortune before you wipe your ass with them like an old Weimar Deutschmark.
It'll be grand when we're all trillionaires!
Well...they got that shit RIGHT over us big time!!
But that compared to the bullshit with Johnny Depp and Amber Heard's doggie dirty deeds and I'm all kinds of confused by that countries consistencies.
Soooo true. ..what a great post.
I know so many people that have a ridiculous amount of free time at work (where would message boards be without them??). They typically do nothing but George Costanza at their collective "Penske Files" - just wasting copious amount of time. This, JUST to say "I worked five days...look at me!!"
And like George Costanza - I think corporate America likes to present the ILLUSION to other countries that we're working harder than we really are by just simply coming into "the office" completely unnecessarily.
I can't tell you how many people I know that think they can do the full job they're paid for in just 3 or 4 days - as opposed to five. So they just justifiably pace themselves until that option I suggest comes along. And who can blame them because they ain't getting raise in this economy.
Well dogs need to be quarantined for disease and ticks/fleas so we can protect our agriculture.
Has that been a major issue in the past where domestic dogs sullied Aussie crops??
This is all new and news to me.
Just to stop exotic disease infecting wildlife. Same as rabbits are not allowed in Queensland due to them eating crops.
Ok, I THINK I got it - thanks!! The story was just so Bizarro to me that I just couldn't get my primitive pet-less and humanitarian head around it.
Depp was just lazy, he could have got the dogs checked in probably a day due to his status.
Just like his scripts in the last 6 years.
My feeling every fucking morning.
But the commute would really be a bitch for most Americans. Bad idea.
Just do what Beth did. Marry a closeted homo billionaire. You just have to play with kittens and drink wine all day.
