Working Overtime (2)

But I feel like I'm wasting time if I go home and watch TV...

Even if I'm reading a good book I still feel like I should be working!

You know Larry; you might be addicted to work.

Really? A person can get addicted to work?

Well, maybe it's not the same as being addicted to drugs, but many people believe you can get addicted to stress.

Yeah. If you find that you can't enjoy being at home and relaxing, it might be a problem.

I guess I am a bit of a perfectionist.

It irritates me when things aren't perfect.

Maybe you are too hard on yourself.

If you were your own boss, would you demand such long hours?

No way... I think it would be illegal anyway.

Well, then maybe you need to treat yourself better.

You have to believe that you deserve to relax!

You not only deserve it, you need it.

You know, I find that sometimes I have my best ideas in the strangest places.

The last time I had a really great idea, I was scuba diving on vacation!

But I want the boss to notice my devotion!

The economy is not great these days and I don't want to get laid off!

Yeah, that's true. Some bosses do think the guy who puts in overtime is the most loyal.

But smart bosses know that quantity is not as important as quality.

Besides, this is your job, not your life.

You're too young to die of a heart attack!

Thanks guys! Your advice makes sense.

I'm going to go home and have a nice long bath! See you on Monday!
