My company has an option where you can work an extra hour a day (9 hours/day instead of 8 ) for two weeks and then get every other Friday off.
Just curious as to what you all would do.
In the past, I would have voted "No. My afterwork schedule doesn't allow it" because, when the DDs were younger there was always something else to do -- chauffeur them to activities, help with homework, serve dinner on time, etc.
I no longer have those "restrictions" but I'm wavering between taking the option or not.
Now? I'd vote "No, for other reasons."
I really like going into work every other Friday where I'm the only one in my particular office that doesn't take this option. So it's a very quiet, peaceful day. I leave the outer (hallway) door closed, keep the lights off (very soothing on the eyes for computer work) and get a whole lot of work done in a leisurely, but extremely productive manner. No interruptions, no "Help me now!" or "This needs to be done ASAP!" requests. In other words, no pressure headaches.
Am I odd for enjoying these solitary work days and not taking advantage of the every other Friday off benefit?edited to change the icon . . . 8 followed by a close parenthesis does that.
