When I was a contract electrician on Kelloggs in the 90's.... our site foreman had a motivational phrase to make you work the weekend.


If you said you weren't available to work he used the phrase "Very well.....D.C.M"






Translated it basically meant that if you don't work the weekend; then "Don't Come Monday"


Worked all the time!!
