What time does your Husband get off work?

Mine gets off between 7 and 7:30pm. I wish he got off earlier so we could have dinner together and spend some time in the evenings. He tells me his job is great and more people than not have to work that late. Am I deluded in thinking that most people get off at 5 and have time for their families?!

  • No, you are not wrong in thinking that! Mine gets off work at 5pm about half the time, but that's after leaving the house at 4:30am and getting to work by 6am (and working 8hrs every other Saturday). So while we have dinner, that's about it. I too wish my DH worked more "normal" hours (like he did before this job), but I try not to complain cause at least he has a good job.

  • My dh makes his own hours so can get off whenever, but is usually home by 4. But once in awhile has night appointments with clients.

  • My hubby goes in at 8am and gets off at 5pm in the winter months. In the summer he can work from 8am to as late as 11pm. He is also on call 24/7 and he only has one day off that is Sunday. Saturdays he works from 8am until 12pm winter months the summer he sometimes don't get off until as late as 5 or 6 on Saturday's so I know how you feel.
