    Given the choice, would you rather add three hours to each day, or an extra day to each week?

    I'd rather add a day to each week rather than hours to a day. If a standard work week is 40 hours, it would give more time for leisure or catch-up on chores/study time.

    I'd rather have an extra day in the week - provided that it was a continual three day weekend, and not an additional work day.  5 days a week at 40+ hours is more than enough for me.

    I'd rather have the extra day.  Since I often work 60 hours a week, including Saturdays, I'd love to have two days of rest instead of one.  One is just not quite enough, I'm afraid!

    If I were still in the paid workforce instead of being a 'retiree' I'd go for a six day week with a three-day weekend!  Assuming my employers paid me enough to enjoy the time off.   I'm talking a 21 hour working week.

    Life is for living, not spending six out of seven days a week at work (Yep, my view despite what the Bible Bangers might say)   This is not the case if you love your work, of course.  If you do, then six days work followed by one day of recreation (RE- CREATION) is great.   

    Unfortunately, so few are blessed with the ability, or common sense to find or create a working life that they can love, hence "Monday-itis blues" for the nine to five officer workers.  People living for their brief 'time off' is rather pathetic when you think of it.   Surely with today's technology we could all be working that three-day working week I wrote of at the outset.

      I remember my father (and the government)talking about 4-day work weeks forty years ago. It never happened. There's enough work, time and people to go round...what's the problem?

    Both and neither... My monday morning is not much different from my saturday evening or wednesday afternoon really. I have the luxury at the moment to take each "hour" as it comes, not just each day. It takes a while to break free from the structure of 7-day weeks and 2-day weekends, but I'm enjoying learning how to. I sleep when I want, rise when I want. I love the morning so I take a long nap in the afternoon so I can have the feeling of two mornings a day. The downside is losing track of the date - but I have my telephone to remind me.
    But if I had to have a "job"... I'd go for Tusitala Tom's arrangement.

    I will have 3 extra hours every day please. Thank you. And one day off for rest.

    With my business mind, I say add more hours to the day.  But, personally, I would add an extra day to the weekend.  :-)

    Extra day each week. There are already too many hours in a day and I'm drained by the time I can get back to sleep.

    If I would have been given the choice, I would add an extra day (That would another be sunday!)

    Definitely an extra day.  I'm too tired for three more hours at the end of the day.  Most young people will probably want three more hours.  Not too many years ago, that's what my wish would have been.  It would also be nice to have an extra day with new beginnings.  Life is so good, seven just aren't enough.  Still, God knew what he was doing and I'll make the most of every day, no matter how many there are.

    I'd really love an extra day, but not as a work day! I think it would be great to have a 3 day weekend!

      A 3-day weekend would be wonderful! Another option would be to have a mid-week day-off to break up the tedium. I know that it could also serve to break up the groove we get ourselves in to work at optimium function, but crowds are lighter then.

    i would rather have an extra day of each week. You get another 24 hours compare to 3 hours of each day. Another day with another bountiful of workload to finish.

    I would add an extra day to the week that would be used only for rest, recreation, and relaxation. Three extra hours on each day would just extend the time I have to continue trying to get more stuff done.

    I would definitely enjoy an extra day!  Who wouldn't enjoy cuddling, laughing, loving, dancing or doing a slew of other things that one enjoys just a little bit longer?  I know that I would!  Unfortunately we have to work with the days, hours and minutes we're given and make the best of each one.  I believe in living life with no regrets so I do, and say what I need to do so that I won't feel cheated when my time is up!
