Office Life

How long do you spend in office?

7d

I usually reach office by 8:30 am and leave at 7pm. I do not slog. I have always been a good member of team, never missed a sharp deadline too. Do you think I spend way too much time in office. How much should I cut down?

Priority in life is to balance work and life. Surprisingly even now both are going awesome. Girlfriend never complains. Touch wood. But I think if I can spare some time, I might use it on my fitness and recreation.

      It's working coz she goes to work late. At around 10:30 am or 11. And returns around the same time. We keep awake till 12:30 am in night. So we spend quite some time daily.

      Not bad. How many times do you guys have sex on average/week?
      7d
    • OP
      Sometimes too much. Like 2-3 times a week. Sometime 0-1 times a week.

      Nice. If I were you, I'd do more than that tbh

      I can do it twice a day. You need to respect the mood of person you are with. Girls != Guys

      True that. Or maybe she's not into you as much, so yeah, it must be difficult to convince her

      It also depends which phase of life they are.. everyone not in their 20s to have that much passion for sex.. it is just a wave.. when a wave will come you never know.. just go to bathroom and relax that wave..

    Do you even see the sun when you leave the office? Do you find it kinda sad that you can't spend time with your GF during the day when the sun is out?

    Usually in by 10 am out at 5 pm. When I have meetings earlier I’ll come in as early as needed but I do check emails before I leave for work at 8:45.

      Around releases its midnight ... not cause I’m a slacker but cause bosses want everything in at the last moment ...

      Before anyone else comments about me not being efficient ... I eat on my desk ( 10-15 min break to get lunch ) , don’t have an afternoon coffee so no break there too

      Unfortunately ( for me ) I don’t think I have a good work life balance ( despite being single ) ... by the time I get home its already 8 ... I’m too tired to workout ( guess I lack the motivation too ) or do anything constructive ... Saturday goes in recovering from the week and Sunday in doing chores ...

    I try to average the typical 9 hours but I find myself taking less than an hour for lunch (I often bring from home) and doing closer to 10

      Should mention I'm in Europe and work closely with Redmond so I try to overlap

    Do the right thing before she complains. I think that’s a long time for work.

    Im in by 9:30 or 10 and leave at 5/5:30. I do work at home after work sometimes but there’s no way I can stay in the office that long.

    OP your statement is so out of wack . You should be leaving early, go home read a book or go to a gym and improve your health. I hope you have heard about death by work in the Japanese culture ....
