DO you ever mutter under your breath at a dry cleaner with the temerity to open as late as 7 a.m.? Have you snapped at a neighbor who asks if you plan to attend the 7:30 p.m. town council meeting? Does your child have trouble remembering which country you are in this week?

If you answered yes to more than one of these questions, chances are you have been working the long hours that are increasingly common for many salaried employees.
