It is Sunday but I am at work .... :(

My boss asked me to report yesterday to finish some work. But I refused since I had already prior commitment with my family so I just begged off that I will report this Sunday to do the work. Despite I wanted to stay at home. I reluctantly prepared myself to do the task of printing reports. Now I am alone in the office so there is no one disturbing me to finish this tasks. I hope I can just make it the printing fast so I can go back home earlier.

Often, if you are working on your own you can get a lot done in a shorter time.

It is sad to work on weekends. I would rather work overtime on weekdays.

@rsa101 It must be urgent. I'm also at peace and focus when no other around because you could be more productive.

@ZedSmart Actually I can work at my own pace without the others asking for something which can distract you from what you are doing right now.

Well when ytou are inundated by it you really cannot do anything but to work extra day for that to be finished. I finished four hours later and had still the time to spend with the family during dinner time.

@rsa101 I am glad that you had some time left to stay with the family. I know that often we cannot say NO.

@LadyDuck Especially when its occasionally asked of us. I was actually asked to have in last Saturday but I refused because I have family commitment to do on Saturdays so I begged off Sunday since I am practically open on Sundays.

I would also refuse if I have a prior appointment or schedule and will ask my boss to finish work on Monday or during weekdays.

I could have done that too but During weekdays I could not attend to this job since I have others task besides I have to attend to my co-workers requests too. I volunteered to have it done on this day because I got the office to myself with no other distractions from others.

It is hard to get up[ for work especially on a weekend. Hopefully, they paid you extra for the overtime work. Used to have Saturday shift as well and they pay premium here in the office but I'd rather stay at home and rest.

I'll just have this one for offset in weekdays. It's true I'd rather stay at home than work too. But there are days that you really have to report to be able to finish a job on hand without disturbance of anything that could stop the work. Weekend is just that perfect time with no disturbance from others and you can focus on the job at hand only.

Well from time to time I would have to do this since last week my multitasking job was focused on something that is why this task has to be done for now. I could have done it on a Saturday but I have family commitments that day so I scheduled it on a Sunday duty. It was ok there was no disturbance with the work since I am all alone in the office so I can work more focus on the task.

Well its a once in a lifetime chances and I think I chose this day since there are no other employees around to bother me with my work. Whereas if I do this on a weekdays there are lot of request from my co workers to accommodate their request Sunday would be focused on that job alone.
