a 4 day work week? It's settled then..you are moving to New Orleans! Here in the "Big Easy?" I can't guarantee it, but generally, nobody returns to work after lunch on Fridays...and Mondays in some offices are optional.

He he I can have a four days week if I want to. Just have to work those four days 9 hours and off I go on the fifth.

Or I can start at 9.30 and go home at 3.00, as long as I make up for the lost hours somewhere along the road of a years working days.

He he we have flexible working hours LOL

i, a victim of a major multi-billion dollar corporations trying to cut labour costs, have never been so financially fortunate to have a forty hour week.

What's a 40 hour work week, anyway?  Has anyone really ever seen one?  What color are they?  Do they breed and multiply?  Two legs or four legs?

I can answer that, Sunshine.

It's like a regular work week,
minus any work actually getting done.
