We’re required to put in a minimum of 10 hours of overtime at work this week. (Next week is expected to be the same, but it’s not official yet.) At the end of the day today, there were 21 hours on my time sheet. That’s 5 hours of overtime, and it’s only Tuesday.
There is a voice in my head telling me to keep up this pace for the rest of the week – go for a 12.5-hour-overtime week. (More for the thrill of saying I did it, but also because the money will come in handy.) There is another voice in my head telling me to hit the 10 hours on Thursday and take it easy on Friday.
