    jumpman23 Oh Yeah

    Just a scenario really or a poll of opinions. Its pretty much a given really that as soon as we wake up in the morning and our feet hit the floor are day is over for ourselves. How many hours would a day have to consist of, for us to still work 10 hours( approximately) and still have time to have a normal life, like getting enough sleep, work, play, relax at home time and time with family that may be needed? Just a different fun question for a sunday afternoon lol.

    Most of us are out of the house at least 13 14 hours a day by the time you get home you would be lucky enough to get at least 6 hours of sleep we all live a no life working at ups

    I say I knew what I was getting into when I signed up. I saw a good salary and benefits and an excellent retirement. Now I see a good salary, decent benefits and a dwindling retirement because my local can't manage a pension fund. It could be worse though.

    You could be a Schwan's delivery person. When they put help wanted ads in the paper they always say " must be willing to work a minimum of 70 hours a week.

    We could be a lot of things.

    But we aren't.

    In the dream land we are playing in, I figured:
    10 hrs working
    2 hrs commute
    8 hrs sleep
    the rest free time....now if we could only convince the sun to stay out longer...

    Rainman Its all good.

    I normally get home 8:30 ish at night. If I could be home 5:30 ish I could have a pretty normal life. So I figure 27/28 hours would be a big help.

    I would leave at 7am and get home around midnight
     
  14. 24 hours in a day is enough. If we had anymore, Ups would find a way to work us longer.

    This job really can get under your skin sometimes. At least we make enough Money. That we don't have to work 2 jobs.

    Ya know Jump, I have often thought about this same question and for my opinion only, I would have to have a 48 hour day so that way the clocks and daylight would reset itself.

    12 hrs work (4 day workweek)
    12 hrs to sleep, eat, shower, drive, and whatever else that falls under life tasks.
    14-16 hours to do the things you like (hobbies, chores, fun)
    8-10 hours of sleep.
