How many hours do you work?

The Washington Post has a whole section on labor today, and they were talking about how people used to work 80 hour weeks and such. I'm just curious to know how many hours people here work at their job (that doesn't include fish tank time unless you own a fish store ) I work 40 hours at one job, and ~4 hours at my other job (I clean a house for extra money)

If you don't love what you do, you'd better find something else to love. Otherwise, you don't have a reason for living.
