Hi Eric, I'm also 31 and I think in tech we are considered old, it is like you said because the young college grads love to take on anything it makes it toxic for everyone else.

What I've noted I used to work a lot of free-time for the company, at one stage got a serious relationship and decided to spend MY time rather on the relation.
Needless to say, the company was not amused when I told them I was working for free and never got compensation for these hours, nor did I receive the Porsche they promised me upon selling the company did they silence completely.

Wait to get to your fifties mate :) even listening to the sound of the wind becomes more important than an overtime commit.

Wise words, can't wait to settle down and not have to feel bad about ridiculous things
