Hopefully i won't regret it when i get older.
That was a discussion I had recently at work. Five 10 hour days a week is plenty but I enjoy my life outside of work too much to spend all my waking hours there. Kids are only young once, the wife only likes doing so many things alone with them. The money is nice but got by just fine without working 60 hours and have no desire at all to do it.Hopefully i won't regret it when i get older.
Feeling like and dog tired all the time doesn't inspire a person do the things they use to. Vacation you say, yeah that couch looks nice. Pass the bourbon.3 week vacations after 5 years of service doesn't sound too bad, plus 5 options days, 10 US official holidays and sick and personal days....I don't get it when you talk about "have no time for your family"
same in the northeast, and this was something I thought we should improve on to try and attract and keep more mechanics,however the I.A.M local agreements pretty much follow the teamster local agreements So I doubt we could get 3 after 5 years.Don't get a third week until 10 years in the Southern.
That’s when you need a good handyman pay him well remember him at ChristmasIt also really depends on your spouse. Mine works at UPS part time so she knows all about my job and has no issues with my hours (well, some, but she understands) and she like to spend "our" money. She wouldn't need to work at all, but she makes $21/hr part time, so it's just one of those 'might as well' kind of things. I know a lot of guys who get divorced because their spouses feel neglected or lonely (which isn't untrue). My biggest problem isn't the family time, it's the house upkeep. I can do the minor stuff, but any major projects are tough to find trime for.
