    Wow u got me I guess I love my five day week now.
    When you include an average commute, it's more like 62 to 50.

    Almost equal time at work to time with loved ones! Woohoo!

    Not to mention that when I lived with my loved one, he did shift work so we literally saw each other for about two hours a day in the week.

    Even then not sure you can seriously count every single hour that you aren't at work or asleep or driving "time with loved ones". Still, it's important to disagree with someone in the internet sometimes. Sigh.

    The average commute doesn't reach anywhere near 22 hours a week/over 2 hours each way per day... your lower estimate of 1 hour each way is closer.

    So 62 hours, hardly almost equal to 40.

    Strong maths difeo, you numpty. I added 10 to the work hours, which meant I had to take 10 off the free time. :ms:

    It's really not that bad. I'd quite like a four-day working week, but then I'd end up working 16-hour days.

    Ah I see. The wording wasn't clear

    Still a solid 20% difference

    Well, obviously Microsoft. He's Bill Gates, you know. Haven't you heard of Bill Gates?

    I wonder if he's selling it to IBM? They've been after it for years, and I've heard they've been having trouble with their Nokia acquisition and the Surface division.
