I know the feeling, at the country club of Detroit we are still in our early, slow part of the season. Can't wait for 6 day service weeks,our club is closed on Mondays, and lots of hours. Bankroll and that means more knives!! :D

Not a chef, but am currently working between 84 and 90 hours per week. Need a vacation soon.

AWESOME <> That's awesome to see someone else doing it, and not to stereotype, but it's what I expect from most countries outside the States. The laziness and sense of entitlement in which pervades this society is a "special" thing. I will add though my time in France was bewildering regarding laziness... I could never imagine anything like that until I lived it.

I read in the news that the some government employees in my home country (Sweden) will have 6 hour work days on trail to see if productivity go up as they won't be so overworked?!?!?!?! I was gobsmacked.

The weeks I only put in 50 hours I feel like I cheated my company... Below that and I may has well have called off.
