Does it feel like you’re working longer than 40 hours a week? You probably are. Americans who work full time are putting in 42.5 hours a week on average, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, and many work more than that.
Despite studies that show just how bad it is for your health to work long hours, the trend of working longer weeks doesn’t seem to be going away anytime soon.
So how do people deal with working too hard? Some join the recovery group Workaholics Anonymous, while many take to Twitter to share their often hilarious (and sometimes heartbreaking) stories about what happens when you work too hard.
