Where the heck did the term "work like a dog" come to mean working really hard?

It's hard to blame this guy. Sleep mode, low energy windows, zero energy homes and offices, energy saver mode... makes me tired just thinking about it. Why don't they have a "high energy" mode or a "stand back 'cause this thing's about to go crazy" mode on that stuff? Just think of the increase in productivity - after a heavy lunch or about 3:00 in the afternoon or on Fridays, hit that high energy mode button and everyone in the office instantly feels like they just drank a quart of Red Bull.

At the rate this is going, in a couple of years a response will be expected before the email is received.
