    Uh, do you realize active duty military work have to be available 24/7? And they are in the government. Quit with the lame fall-back jokes. I work for the government and have a lot of people who work for me who work 7 days a week with odd schedules and constantly shifting around, all to serve the military members better. And we are a microcosm.

    You’re also the exception — an exception that deserves thanks and praise; but an exception nonetheless. My dad worked for the 9-to-5 Army both before and after WWII; during the war he was in the 9-to-5 Army, doing the exact same thing he did either side of the war.

    Actually, I’ll ditto that to a degree. I worked in municipal government for 10 years, and one of the reasons that I left for the private sector was that my hours were AWFUL. 60-hour weeks were common, and since I was salaried, I didn’t get any compensation for the extra hours – not even comp time. Once I left for the private sector, my hours went down and my pay went up; my benefits aren’t as good, but the increased pay and fewer hours more than make up for that. Plus I’m no longer subject to the derision of scum like Lachowski.
