Happy Hour is over!
January 24, 2017 2:17pm CST
I was working all day today but I was alone at the office and no one was tracking my progress. Then, my boss comes in the afternoon and says "Happy hour is over, it's time to get some work done!". But I have been working non-stop since the day started, and now he gave me a new project to start! I complained a little and showed him all the projects that I had finished and I managed to postpone the new project for tomorrow morning. I want to start with a clear mind. When you think you are done for the day, someone comes and gives you more work to do! Has this ever happened to you?

I guess when someone shows that they can complete many projects with success, everyone wants to give the work to them. The other girl in my office who is not very experienced with design leaves on time and no one has additional expectations. I have too many years for retirement, I think I should move to another country where they appreciate the effort of their employees. I was reading that Denmark has the best work/life balance!

@besweet I have read that about Denmark. Still, I would never leave my country (well, let's see what Trump has in store for us - lol). It's a shame you are not recognized for your skills. Would it be better to look elsewhere for a job? Some employers are great, while others are not. It all boils down to money.

Once I'm done for the day, I don't accept any more work to do. It has never happened to me because before I start any employment, I always tell my immediate boss that I go to work early, like 6 am and I leave at 3 pm. They can't expect me to do more work beyond 3 om as I would be tired by then. It worked. Any work beyond my 8th hour is done by 6 am the next day. I just see the documents on my desk the moment I arrive in my office.
