Never again will I work a job that requires much more than 40 hours a week.
I'll work all the overtime they want me to as long as I am paid hourly... I have no way of knowing what is going to happen in a couple years, but I do know that right now all my overtime dollars go straight into my savings account.

I just can't say no to an extra $1500 or more a month... the decision is easier considering I'm single and all my family is on the east coast.

I ain't mad at you. I'd do the same thing.
