Bathroom breaks?! Smoke breaks?! Lunch breaks?!

The company I work for allows us to take a single 3 minute break in the
morning, and then a single 3 minute break in the afternoon. Besides the two
3 minute breaks and a 15 minute lunch, we have to work from 7:00am until
8:00pm nonstop.

There is this program that counts key strokes. If we stop typing for more
then 5 minutes our manager runs over and kicks our chair, yelling at us to
"Get Back To Work!".

Connie, you have it great!
