    Between 8-9.

    10-11 on the weekends.

    You seem to be trying hard to justify those 5A-9P days. Sorry, dude.

    Lulz at the thought I feel the need to justify anything. I calls them as I sees them. .

    Yeah, I would think that just a straight "hours worked" correlation would be stronger than time of waking.

    Although, I wonder if it would breakdown if you went down the economic chain -- i.e. someone working two or three minimum-wage jobs, then a dip in hours worked in the middle where you get a bunch of people working 9-5, and then a bunch of professionals working exhaustive hours.

    Work smarter not longer.

    Of course when your revenue stream is driven by billable hours you just have to do both...work smarter to drive up the billable rate, but then the incentive is still there to work more.

    My company is technically on a 35 hour week...

    Actually, the luz is on you. Your posts in this thread reek of self-justification and some sort of snobbery at being a wage slave:

    You feel "affluence" (as judged by what, what people have posted on a clothing forum?) is signified by leaving for work before light and coming home after dark? Really? Apparently most of you live on your knees. People are proud that they are expected to answer their bosses e-mails at 6:00 AM? Proud of the "cache" (extra lulz) at being the first in and the last out, also known as the most inefficient worker?

    Hilarious.

    Is this a function of having to deal with timezones east of you?

    I wake up at 6:40-ish. At my desk by 7:30. Leave when I have to, never before 5:30.

    If I had to wake up at 5 a.m. or 6 a.m. or whatever other god-forsaken hour some of you wake up at every day, I would jump off a bridge.

    This thread should be renamed "The Lazy Lima Bean Thread".
