7:30am Start Required

Post placeholder image

So the Managing Director is mandating that all members of the business development/sales team get in the office by 7:30am. Doesn’t he realize that I’ll be worthless after 11am? I’m not sure if I’m going to be able to keep this up. I’m too much of a night crawler to get up and out in time to be at work for 7:30am each day. Basically this means that I’m going to have to try and fall asleep by 10am. This means giving up watching Nightline, Jimmy Kimmel Live and Oprah. It sucks I tell you. It just sucks! Oh how I long for the days when I had a 8:30/9am start time.

    Oh no. I’m also expected to burn the midnight oil. I know I should be grateful for having a job (and I am) but this is really starting to grate on my last nerves. I’m stressed beyond belief.

    Does this mean you get to bug out at 3:30?

    Hi Ursula, so glad you stopped by!
    Photoshop 7 can do wonders for your washed out photos, or ‘red eyed’ photography. My camera can’t take all the credit. In fact I can’t take any of the credit except the sprucing up in Photoshop. My hubby took the photos.
    I wish I had a job to get up for (I’m a 9/11 layoff victim), but when I did, I suffered like you. I’m a nightowl as well. Hang in there for those early meetings. It will get better as you adjust.
    Take care!

    Don’t you see it? The true purpose of your new start time is so you can cold call California prospects at 5:30 a.m. their time.
