Laugh | :laugh:

I've been in a similar situation.
We had a new interim manager who joined the company in November or December.
My employer asked me to create a new application, but there was no time during office hours, so I had to do it in my own time at 200% of my current pay.
I still lived with my parents so I had no house to take care of, dinner to cook, etc., the job was fun and the pay was good and I loved programming so of course I agreed.
Then came Christmas and I sat and ate with the family and had a good time.
And after that I decided to write some code as it was fun and it was "my" project.
So after Christmas this new manager called me in his office.
"Sander, how are you?"
"Ehhh... Fine, you?"
"How is your home situation? Is everything alright with your parents? How's your relationship with them?"
"Sorry, WHY are you asking me this? Confused | :confused: "
"I noticed you worked on Christmas day."
I had a good laugh and explained to him that I simply loved my work Laugh | :laugh:
I guess maybe you're a bit weird in the head if you love your work that much Laugh | :laugh:
Good times...
