I'm not going to fucking work harder then the client. If they want to change their lives I can work wonders (hardly any do). For most, losing their children is the luckiest break of their life.

I'm at work on Veeky Forums right now. I literally just browse Veeky Forums and play Runescape at work all day and like once a week someone e-mails me a small Excel task to do which takes maybe an hour and a half/2 hours at the very most, but usually only like 30-40 minutes. Then it's back to my shit.

Some of my work entails a lot of waiting, is it suddenly not work, just because I am forced to wait for things to happen / get done? It's not like it is spare time and I could do whatever I wanted, it's still reserved for work. I'd say 1/3 is "actual work", as in I am actively doing something, 2/3 is waiting to see the results.

I work at a gym on a military base, I show up at 0430 unlock doors and turn on lights and that's it, so about 10 mins per day of work. For the other 8 hours I workout, eat gov. subsidized food, look at fit girls' asses, do my own work, and maybe answer the phone once. 32k per year, NA07 federal series.

I work in a sales office from 5-10pm. Realistically, one shouldnt need more than one break for a five hour shift. nonetheless, due to state laws, we are given two fifteen minute breaks we can take whenever we so choose, as well as a 45 minute dinner break. They try to incentive us to stay up and not take breaks but only the newbies actually listen since their trying to curry favor/brownnose. Then I'd say half the time on the systems at work I spend browsing Veeky Forums. So that's maybe 2 hours of work daily, 10 hours.

Flameblow

Look for a job with systems analyst in the title.

Financial systems analyst is a good place to start.

I work as an info security architect/project manager/consultant
some weeks it's 2 hours, some weeks it's 60, but I always have some warning/lead time for the long weeks.
$120k gross, $90k after taxes annual, plus perks

That sounds like a shit gig that you do because you eat live breathe love the product.

You should be asking for profit sharing, fyi. That's how c level comp is supposed to work in normal industry, anyway.

I work 40+ hours at my office job because we have an open floor layout and my boss is literally over my shoulder all day. Recently he's been on a crusade against phones and internet browsing even during slow periods because he's trying to brown nose the higher ups. Meanwhile the other half of the department has headphones on all day. It's hell.

I do environmental labouring works. Paid for ~40 hours per week, easily do 35 hours solid work. Plus an average of 10-20 hours transit time on top.

Really 45-50 hours of my week is completely dedicated to work, but I am paid for less than that. Doing everything I can to move on from this job.

No. Nobody actually talks about the millionaire next door because they don't usually recognize them. That's the point.

How the fuck do you people browse Veeky Forums while working? You must have private offices or something, which is a freaking blessing (it's almost always open spaces in the industry I work in, which is software).

Anyways, the time of real work per week fluctuates throughout the year but I guess the following are good enough estimates (weekly basis and a standard work week is considered to be 40 hours in the european country I live in and I receive a fixed salary):

Busy times -> 45 to 50 hours of real work.
Sluggish times -> 5 to 10 hours of real work.

Average overall -> 25 to 35 hours of real work.

But I actually fucking hate sluggish times because it involves just punching the clock every day, when I could actually go through all the week's work in a single day and given that I'm in a open space, I can't really be browsing about stuff more pertinent to my interests and hobbies outside my day job.

That's what you get when working in time driven and not result driven workplaces.
