Management and I could not come to terms so I gave it a long thought and then quit. It had nothing to do with not liking the work -- it was truly a matter of just wanting to spend less time working.


Years ago when I graduated from college I had an interview with defense contractor General Dynamics to work at their Electric Boat shipyard in Groton, CT where they build nuclear submarines for the Navy. Electric Boat was apparently a completely crappy place to work with low morale and rampant absenteeism.

I remember reading an article in the local paper where a reporter was interviewing an hourly worker.

Reporter, "Why do you only show up for work three days a week?"

Worker, "Because I can't earn enough money to live on if I only show up two days a week."

And this was before Obamacare made it easier for workers to quit their jobs.
