Andy,

Surely you're setting a bad example to your hard working staff if you buggar off to the pub early. If you had any decency you'd take everyone down the pub with you early on a Friday and buy the rounds for an hour or two....motivation would surely improve.

I'm not my own boss but when we're out at clients on a Friday I take the lads to the pub for a pint at 4pm and whack it on expenses....

I think this should be on the agenda at the next CBI get together.

Trebles all round....

Well...it has been said that if you run your own business you can work half days....just decide on the 12 hours in the day you want to work.

Having said that, I work 10-12 hours 70% of the year and I'm not even running my own business....doh.

I did take 6 weeks holiday for the last three years though....

Roll on next summer....I might actually get to the pub.

Mark, Andy...what do your companies do/specialise in or whatever?

Thanks...I'm in the wrong job.....do diving jobs (not commercial) actually pay any decent money?

I mean, living on a lovely island teaching "johnny and jenny 6 warm water dives a year" types actually pay?

Just wondering.....

Its only money, I do the diving for free, I only take the money for a souvenir.
