Are you a robot? If you expect to work non-stop without time to rest or recharge, you are a robot, or perhaps worse than a robot. Doesn't a robot get a new battery pack or time to recharge every now and then?

I'm being slightly facetious, but I do think our human working culture has turned into a robotic working culture without us noticing. The statistics on how little time Americans take for vacation, how many hours we work, how productive we are, all this points to one thing -- we stopped being humans with flaws and turned into shiny silver worker robots somewhere along the line. Perhaps we might cut ourselves and one another some slack. Our computers spend more downtime offline than we do.
