The weekends are mine to decide

dt160706

Many years ago working at a telecommunication company I learned to never tell anyone that you enjoy doing nothing on the weekends.

Because management took it as a sign to load ne with so much work that you would have to work on weekends so meet Monday deadlines. The reasoning, because you have nothing to do, can make you work on weekends.

But I needed to rest I pleaded with them, “you can rest after you are dead.” was their answer.

“Well then I’m going to hell because I quit!” I handed in my resignation and left. No wonder there was no permanent staff at this company and how they quickly hired anyone who applied right through the door.

Saturdays and Sundays are mine. What I do with them is none of your business. Even if I have nothing to do, it doesn’t mean you can load me with work and expect me to do work on it.

Although I am now busy on weekends, but it is on my own terms and not dictated by some middle management pinhead.
