YEARS ago, when work was slow, the company I worked for had given me a job that needed (A LOT) of parts soldered onto large circuit boards. I could complete2 boards a day. There was enough work to last 2 months. I asked my boss if I could take the parts home under the condition I would be done 2 weeks early. He agreed knowing that part of the time it would have taken to commute I COULD be working (for "free"). Once home, my wife and I set up an assembly line and while watching TV finished all the boards in 2 weeks. I spent a month home with my wife (with pay) and my company got their finished boards 2 weeks early. And when worked picked up I still had a job. A win/win/win situation.
