Try asking a policeman or fireman on the job 24 hours a day to punch the clock at arbitrary times

Wait a minute, policemen and firemen are salaried, well paid, get overtime, get vacations, and get breaks!  Well, let's just say for hypothetical sake they were working 24 hours a day and we asked them to punch a clock at certain times.  Due to their unscheduled, impromptu, erratic emergencies, it would be impossible.  Welcome to the world of a family caregiver just trying to survive and you want them to do what?  Please rethink this and let's move forward.  Thank you for your time!
