Theory of Relativity

Why is it when I was working in an office job, chained to a desk from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm Monday through Friday, a day was so long and a week took forever?  At 8:30 I couldn't wait until 4:30 and on Monday morning I couldn't wait until Friday afternoon.  And the stretch from one vacation to the next was an eternity.

Now, semi-retired and working (occasionally) from home, the days evaporate like morning dew and the weeks breeze by like a drive in the country.

Moral: If you want a long life, stay in a job you hate.


  1. I'm chained to a desk 9AM to 5PM. I usually get there at 8:45 and leave at 4:45 though.

    And because I'm in a specialized I.T. field and some days can be super busy, mostly the mornings, and other days dull as all hell. Today was a perfect example.

    I can't WAIT for the weekend.

  2. But Frank is a 100 years in Hell really better than a month in Heaven? I'd choose the latter.
