    On average I work 17 hours a day (not including driving) I work between 3 and 7 days a week, depending on the amount of work I have So if we average that as 4.5 days a week I work (on average) 76.5 hours a week. The most I have ever worked is 3 straight 24 hour shifts, i.e. 72 hours straight. The UK average is 40 hours The French and Italian averages are a little less I think. I think the Swiss and German averages are higher
    How can someone who works 17h per day have time and desire to post 15 messages per day on a forum talking about clothes? working 72h without sleeping = impossible
    I work 3 days in a week.
    Why? How can a director of a big company work only 3 days per week?

    In UK, do many Directors work only one day per week and are paid 750 000 euros ?

    Depends on the job.

    The nature of my work is not the same as most; like I said, sometimes I work 72 hours straight, sometimes 3 days in a week, it depends on the workload.

    Anyway, 72 hour straight (which is not possible) will not change this fact = you don't work so much for an executive who is paid 750 000 euros

    I'm not here to discuss my job. Esp. to a unemployed person who wants to borrow money from me.

    Ernest and I are on the same page here. That ought to tell you something... He may be a little strange, but he's not stupid. And neither am I.

    Things making me think you are a liar =

    You claimed to be very rich, to travel for job, to be a director at Bear Stern, to have your own invest bank, to be English and like clothes, to rent a 1 000² apartment in Paris at 12 000 per month...

    BUT

    1) you didn't even know how you should dress in a SEMI-FORMAL PARTY and wanted to go dressed like a redneck going to a mariage

    2) your dream = buying a vintage Patek

    3) you spent the last 10 days on a forum of clothes

    4) your work only 3 days per week in 2 jobs when most of people work 5 days in 1 job

    You are here to discuss what?

    Your fantasies of wealth and power?

    Or may be just to quote my words?
