    the majority of the people who say this is a regret are the ones who put in more than a 40-hour week. The ones who work late nights and/or weekends. I had a job like that once, where I had to work almost every waking hour to get everything done that I was responsible for. Management said that's what being a "salaried" employee meant, and we were not just hourly 9-to-5 workers. It took a big toll on me physically. If I'd had kids, I would have missed out on spending any time with them. After a couple years, I quit that job, and it was one of the best decisions I'd made.
