Are you always "at work"?

Does your work, or "homework" go home with you many times during the week?

Do you do work "stuff" on weekends?

Does your employer expect it, or do you do it to get ahead or stay ahead?

Does this hurt your family time, social time or sleep?

Having been in upper management in the Food industry, it was 24/7. Weekends and nights were a must. All of my reports and admin stuff was done in my home office. Yes, my job description called for it. Often in my sleep I would have thoughts about work. My loving wife understood.

I never bring my work home. I also make it very clear to my supervisors that since it is expected that family/social not interfere with work than the reverse is also expected on my part They know that when I am off the clock and spending time with family and/or friends to leave me alone. I have a very forceful personality so they know better than to tangle with me . Funny part is one would expect that I would be the employee from hell but I seem to always get good evaluations ~shrugs~

My job is in retail, so I don't often get weekends off anyway, haha. I dont' have things to do at home, mainly because I'm an hourly worker so I'm not really supposed to do work stuff at home, or it would have to be added to my timesheet later on.

However, I sometimes can't help thinking about work and making plans. For example, we have a lot of new product coming in early next week, and even though I've had the night off, I keep thinking about what product moves I need to do and how to display this collection there and so on. It helps me at work, to go in with a more detailed plan, but well I'm at home physically, and I'd like to be at home mentally too!!

I don't have a job but when I'm writing fanfictions my husband likes to joke and say I'm working (since I do it constantly). Though his work is what does us in. He works from the very early morning to early evening, and there just isn't enough time in a day to even have a love making session, it's more of a wham bam thank you ma'am ordeal. Sleep time...what sleep? He comes home, gets supper, spend time with me, do his online stuff, then go to bed and by then he may have at least 5-4 hours sleep.

The team I'm with has rotating "on-call", with designated backup(s) for after hours processing problems. If the Primary and Backup cannot resolve whatever the problem is, they always call me. I keep telling them that I don't know any more than they do.
