Was reading this article about eating lunch at your desk: http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn...011000319.html I fit the bill. I would say 9 days out of ten I'm eating at my desk. Of course they mainly focus on the germs that can be found there, but I was disturbed by something else. One person they feature in the article is working regular 12-14 hour days. How can anyone do this and maintain their sanity? You have absolutely no free time whatsoever. It's also stated the man has two young children. Is it worth the extra money you might be earning if you're not even there to raise your kids? Eating at my desk helps me keep a 40-hour work week. I can understand working extra hours where needed, especially if a company has a particular "crunch" time of year. Ten hour days would even be manageable if you're working like 8 to 6. I guess I'm just baffled by people who seem to be "living to work" as opposed to "working to live."
