I made a deal about the number of hours to work.

The deal with my employer was that I'd work as many hours during the week as
I felt were necessary to complete the job. But I did not work weekends.

The deal with my loyal minions was, work your tail off to make deadline, and
I will ensure that you get as much time off as you want during the slack
