It was decided early in the history of the corporate workplace that working full-time consisted of being with your co-workers for longer periods of time than being with your own family.

Before the powers that be made this decision, it was unknown that there were 40 hours to choose from in any given week. To spend those 40 hours behind some desk somewhere would have been unthinkable.

If it weren't for the increase in numerical value that showed up on employees' bank statements every month, that proposal wouldn't have lasted too long.

But because we are enslaved to currency that no longer even passes through our hands, we submit to the power of the almighty George Washington in the hopes that one day we will be able to purchase yet another month from the landlord.

He may have to plunge a few toilets every now and then, but at least the landlord gets to see his money.
