    I've never worked 9 to 5 in my life. They always make 9-5 sound like such drudgery. 8 to 5 has always been the minimum my entire working career.

            I'd love a 9 to 5 work day.
            Currently 7am to 5:30pm IF I'm lucky.

              You people need to get a life... Slow down and enjoy life for awhile...

              When I was going into business for myself I kept hearing how you only needed to work half a day... They were right, twelve hours...

              Honestly, I don't work that many hours much anymore, always at least eight but those 12-18 hour days aren't easy anymore.. While I was in Texas back in December I put in a couple twelve hour days & one eighteen hour day cause things didn't go as planned... But anymore thats the exception...

              I’ve never even seen a 9 to 5 job, or known anyone that had one. Eight to five, minimum. Wife occasionally has to start at nine at the hospital but then has to work until six, as a minimum.

                        I would go bonkers if I had to work until 5:00 every day.
                        I've worked in construction since 1986. Almost every job started at the half hour nearest the sunrise. In rare cases, we worked overtime. I learned REAL quick that the extra taxation I see on my overtime pay absolutely destroyed my incentive to work extra hours. Why give up my afternoons and Saturdays to average LESS per hour than I did through the week?
                        In Dec 2019 through early 2020, I worked for a company where the Superintendent took a liking to me and wanted me to work 9-10 hour days and Saturday. I hated it. The job wasn't much fun so any extra time there was like eating an extra portion of a crappy meal.
                        I value my time off. It doesn't matter what I am doing either....yard work, car stuff, lazing on the couch watching reruns of CHiPs....My off time is MY time and I don't like giving it up.
                        9-5.....
                        Who actually starts work that late besides bank workers?
