This is where my whole argument about overtime work hinges. People are always
happy to work overtime on something they enjoy (like setting up single-sourcing
systems). But when it comes to doing the mind-numbing work they were hired to
complete...they have to get home to the kids/dog/spouse/car/hobby/etc.

Reading this comment, I suddenly realized that a number of the people who find over-time acceptable are single, at the start of their careers, or both.

I can't help wondering: is there anybody on the list in a permanent relation - especially one with children - who doesn't object to over-time?

Conversely, is there anybody on the list who is single or new to the field who does object to over-time?
