      Hello again daviesI3. 🙂

      My salary is quite high compared to other jobs and I don’t suffer with stress, or long hours.
      I work 37.5 hours in a four day week.

      Hey davies!

      Yes and no… Some weeks (like this week!), I’m so busy that I hardly breathe, and my pay doesn’t really reflect the amount of hours I work. And yet, most parts of my job are so fun, I would almost do them without pay!!!

      I think I get paid a good amount for the job that i do. I work 37.5 hours a week, I get plenty of holiday every year, and I get to leave early on a Friday so I get a nice long weekend.
      The thing that makes my job not stressful is that I don’t have to bring any of it home. When I leave the office I have all my spare time to myself which I like to spend with my wife and seeing friends and family.

      I wouldn’t class my job as very stressful, and I don’t think I do long hours,so I don’t think I need compensation for that.
      My pay also allows me to live comfortably and afford to treat myself, so I’m definitely happy with it.

      Looks like we all agree 🙂
