I don’t care if you work for yourself or work for “the man” there is no better feeling then leaving work early. I’ve had days working from home that appointments have canceled or something else happened that I suddenly found myself with free time….and it is the most wonderful feeling in the world.
And, I’ll share a little secret with you, I don’t care how much housework I have piled up, if I suddenly find myself with a free afternoon, I will spend it with a book.
The same if I am at the office, if I am able to leave work early I am practically clicking my heels together in joy as I run (yes, sometimes it is literally running) to the parking lot.
Of course, the inverse is also true, nothing is more horrible than having to work on your day off. I don’t care how much you love what you do, if you are called into work you never go with a smile on your face. You might smile later when you see a little bit extra on your paycheck, but at that moment when you are wrestling with the recalcitrant copy machine instead of reading like you’d planned your not smiling. In fact, you might be kicking the copy machine for good measure.
