Were you ever dubbed as workaholic?

You spend so much time in the office, longer than normal hours should be, after you've gone home you still worry about office work. So, have you been called already as a workaholic?

No, I haven't been called workaholic. As long as I'm happy with what I do, I tell them I'm not working but I'm having fun!

I love your respone nillouette! I've realized that you don't get tired if you're having fun of what you're doing and that's where they can say you're working too much when in fact you are just enjoying your work. Marking you as the best

well i am surely not dubbed as workaholic... i in fact once my shift time is over i sit on my boss head to let me go. i don't feel like staying in my office for more... as it is they don't pay me any overtime so i just consider it as waste of my talent...;-)

A lot of people call me a workaholic. But to me, they're just lazy.

Yes and my family complains about this. I have 11 hours working schedule in school. When I go home, I don't rest, I do school work.... During my day offs, I still do MORE school works... They are complaining about the time I devote to work, where I only receive less than minimum pay. I cannot even take care of my own kids....

Yes, I was called that many years ago. My officemates thought the newbie was soo serious. But having colleagues who didn't really like to take their work seriously, I learned not to do too much and to try to relax. At least I didn't have to take home work at the time.
