WHY OVERTIME????

My ex-boss in York once sounded me nicely for always leaving the office sharp at 5.30pm. I responded nicely that indeed I am paid to work up to only 5.30pm and on top of that, I do not get OT and really, I didn't have anything to do. I asked him what he suggest that i do? Pretend to work like everyone else? fiddle on my paper and computer until the clock strikes 6pm?

And that's how some of us Malaysians deal with OVERTIME. People who work late are not necessarily hardworking. People who work late also do not necessarily have A LOT OF THINGS to do. People who work late in my opinion just have bad time management.

And some just work late because everyone else is. Because they wanna conform. Well, i defied that and i kena from my ex-boss. But i stood to what i believe. Why the heck work late for nothing. Right?

And if you some people take your work as a refuge from your otherwise unmeaningful and boring life after work. it's time to rethink your priorities.
Work smart.

Hear! Hear!

In my office.. there are some who are never on time in meeting datelines - you see them fiddling around instead of getting straight into their tasks.

I agree to an extend and I hate people to be late for meetings and can be late for more than 1 to 2 hours
However said that, sometimes it's not the OT thing but some work cannot be done during office hours and needs to be done in the wee hours or after office hours

Yep. I do agree it's better to go back sharp at 1730 hours rather than dilly dally in the office doing nothing or acting as if they are working.
