burswag9425yAh shit, I'm in a similar situation. Well, kind of. I'm supposed to finish some tasks this weekend at home. Haven't done it yesterday (Saturday), looked for a new job instead lol. Trying to do it now (Sunday).
nailson215yi know your pain.
I agree this is generally the case today, but it shouldn't be. Corporate folks have learned they can take advantage of developers and expect them to work all the time, at least in the US. I'm working in Europe now and it is different here. Almost a year and no weekend work. Only a couple late nights. I don't work when I'm sick or on vacation, and everyone works truly 40 hours in a week. It is amazing. You can love your job and not want to do it all the time. You're actually more productive when you're working reasonable hours and getting good sleep. I hope this catches on in the states some day...
Spot on! Reading this on a Sunday night, 5 hours before I have to "get up" to go to work and start coding again. It's painful at times, but we love it!
Lilibuth325yknow this so well! Can we just do this in the morning? --- everyone blind panics --- urgh.
