I have a major peeve. Anyone who does not have a college education is called "a working man".
So with my MBA, working 20 hour days when I was on the road 100+ nights a year, what was I ?
Oh, that's right. I got to stay in posh hotels. About 4 hours a night and no OT pay for me.(Maybe I should have unionized?)
But I did get the trips to posh hotels ~ off season when we could get them cheaper than the gresiest dirt bag wino motel ~ and frequently spent 100 hour weeks.
The alternative is hourly wage work with caps on overtime, no trips. Jobs at the higher levels are also more entertaining.
that may be so....but after a while didn't they all blend into the same old, same old. ? After 100+ nights on the road wasn't it nice to NOT eat restaurant food, sleep in YOUR bed.
And the no OT pay because you were EXEMPT. Flying on Sundays to get to you Monday appointment, arriving home at 2 AM Saturday to leave at 13:00 on Sunday. Paying people to do the things that you could do for yourself only if your were there....but instead you're on the road.
The 20+ hour flights to Asia to eat food that is simply the most disgusting thing ever, where you've stopped asking what's in it. The offers of pimps whose prostitutes are young enough to be your grand-children.
Yeah....what a great life indeed.
