Toil

Endless toil. A taxi driver told me he works 13 hours daily, with one day off every two weeks. The guy who cuts my hair said he works 10 hours per day, every day. The waitress in my favorite vegetarian restaurant said that she has one day off each week. My day is relatively short...I leave my apt at 745 and get back a little less than 12 hours later. As my barber said regarding his work schedule, "This is Hong Kong style."
