I work for a well-known company (which for NDA reasons must remain unnamed) that is typically associated with "long hours." It's not true. The extra hours are optional. Most of the folks who stay past 6 or 7 either REALLY love what they're doing, or have no idea how to manage their time.

The exception here is definetly eBay. By placing time restrictions on when people are able to buy items, particularly hard to find items, sellers are able to trick many buyers into believing they have to buy something.

With other vendors however, there are so many options for where you can buy things that often you have to spend weeks just comparing prices.
