"This Way, it Sounds Noble."

The friend of mine who is enjoying her shorter workweek due to a lack of work at her company said she did not want to sound lazy, so she told her manager she would be happy to pitch in and take time off without pay and "help the company out." She told me "this way, it sounds noble, as I am doing the company a favor." She did not want to sound lazy. She told me now that she has Fridays off, she is "exploring her inner lazy child." She loves the shorter workweek and doesn't really want to go back to the 40 hour workweek.

People are so afraid that they will look like they are a lazy bum just because they want a shorter workweek (in other words, a life). We all need to explore our "inner lazy child."
