I obviously can't turn down the essentially free money but fuck does this suck. Every parent I've ever talked to regrets not spending more time with their kids and I'd just arranged my life so I wouldn't be in that position. It's just hard to feel excited about more money when your needs are already covered. My wife sees swimming lessons and more babysitter coverage. I see drudgery and loneliness living the American Dream.
How long is this going to last for?
Can you ask for a four day week or an eight or nine day fortnight? Or extra vacation? - Since so much time is travel time a day not travelling adds up to a lot - and they might not even have to pay you any more.
I'm glad I declined to travel abroad to offshore our products, or to cancel my holiday for our asshat customer who can't do basic arithmetic or plan basically anything. The parts arrived a week late anyway, I'd have been burning angry if I had cancelled.
Fuck it, life's too short. Also, all our customers are asshats.
