I work at the feast or famine factory. I have to bill 40 hours a week. Note I did not say work 40 hours. I said bill 40 hours. The reality of my workload is that I am overloaded followed by brief periods of almost total inactivity. If I billed real hours for a typical month, it would look something like this.
Week 1: 45 hours
Week 2: 50 hours
Week 3: 65 hours
Week 4: 20 minutes
Take this with a grain of salt. Of course it is an exaggeration, but I do wish I could smooth out the bumps. Oh well, I will just enjoy this slow week.
