I should but I cant be bothered.
I used to work 12 hours a day 7 days a week on site.
My God I was knackered and still skint.
I did depend on it tbh but now without it I'm just above the water line.
You only get
So many steps
So many breaths
So many heart beats.
Poor NDP on here.
I hope hes ok but sadly the dice rolled wrong for him.
Brutal but true.
I'm not wasting it working.

I was working 30-80 hours on top of my full time hours each month to cover mrs visa issues and bad investment decisions

Only now starting to slow down after 7 years of hardly any life. Havenít even afforded more than two palace matches on that time

Sometimes overtimeís essential. But your right

Lifeís too short

Thereís a guy in work who even puts me to shame and works all Godís hours. But heís the type that if he didnít work....would prob keel over and die because he needs to stay busy and heís late 70s and Iím 42

Whatever floats ya boat eh

You have a point I discovered my mistake too late.

I spent 20 years as a career guy putting in face time in the office, I was paid well and got promoted.

A colleague joined around the same time as me but we didn't work in the same department until the end of our careers. He told me he always refused to work overtime as he felt his family was more important (I think he was just lazy).

Anyway who was the mug? (Yup it was me). We were both made redundant at the same time on the same salary and grade so where did all that overtime get me. Oh I forgot to mention OT was unpaid in our line of work.

Ow gawd sorry about that.
It is something that some people need to survive.
I'm not buying the we should be paid more line though.
Life is really the luck of the draw.
That's a bit religious but true and you choose your path.
Left or right has a different outcome.
Every decision is left or right.
Remember the only person you can really trust is you because ultimately it is your choice.
I get babies.
Choose wisely with luck a lot of the time and you will get there.
Choose badly and oh s***.

Don't be sorry and I am not angry I was a goal driven person so even if I had known I probably would have made the same decisions in life. It was just ironic that my colleague made the better lifestyle choices and still got the rewards.

Many of my friends work in the building trade they put in the hours because they need the money, I did have the choice unlike them.

I wouldn't work for nothing. All this face time and networking trying to get up the greasy pole must pay dividends as plenty do it.

Personally, I value money above everything else so I wouldn't work a single minute unless I was being paid for it.

When I was employed I worked all the overtime I could get, then recession hit and there were pay cuts, redundancies and all of a sudden people were willing to do the overtime unpaid to gain favour. Scabs.

I set up my own business and work more hours than ever, but I make sure I earn out of it. Best thing I ever did.
