I would have gone with A since I spent many overtime hours not only for retirement but my kids camps and colleges were funded by nights in the OR .

I'd choose A....I don't think I need pumped pecs.

I would go with B. You will live longer and the more reasonable work schedule means you will live more happily.

Both A and B. financial security and physical health should go hand in hand. one positively feeds, or could seriously degrade, the other.

I'd say both. I could put in all the overtime I want, but if I'm not healthy I won't live long enough to see retirement.
Instead of getting angry I just LOL. Can't waste time with stupid people.
