My Mom used to hang up on the military recruiters when they would call. I still remember the way the recruiter on the other end of the line would stammer when my mother would say "This is Lt Colonel Deborah Richardson, US Army, and you will not be calling my house again.

Here’s the math: 4 days x 8 hours a day = 32 hour workweek.
